Examples

------------------EXAMPLE------------------

C:\PS>$searchapp = Get-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication " SearchApp1" 
$contentsource = Get-SPEnterpriseSearchCrawlContentSource -SearchApplication $searchapp -Identity "Local SharePoint Sites" $contentsource.StartFullCrawl()

This example retrieves the default content source for the search service application, SearchApp1, and starts a full crawl on the content source.

Required Parameters

-SearchApplication

Specifies the search application that contains the content source.

The type must be a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; a valid search application name (for example, SearchApp1); or an instance of a valid SearchServiceApplication object.

Type:SearchServiceApplicationPipeBind
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:SharePoint Server 2010, SharePoint Server 2013, SharePoint Server 2016

Optional Parameters

-AssignmentCollection

Manages objects for the purpose of proper disposal. Use of objects, such as SPWeb or SPSite, can use large amounts of memory and use of these objects in Windows PowerShell scripts requires proper memory management. Using the SPAssignment object, you can assign objects to a variable and dispose of the objects after they are needed to free up memory. When SPWeb, SPSite, or SPSiteAdministration objects are used, the objects are automatically disposed of if an assignment collection or the Global parameter is not used.

When the Global parameter is used, all objects are contained in the global store. If objects are not immediately used, or disposed of by using the Stop-SPAssignment command, an out-of-memory scenario can occur.

Type:SPAssignmentCollection
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)
