   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

The New-SPEnterpriseSearchFileFormat cmdlet adds a new file format and a corresponding file name extension to the search parsing system. This binds the file format to a filter-based format handler in the search parsing system. Thus, the search parsing system can only parse the new file format if the user has installed a corresponding filter-based format handler, an IFilter, for the new file format. If the installed IFilter registers more than one file name extension, the user must use the New-SPEnterpriseSearchFileFormat cmdlet to add a new file format to the parsing system for each of these file name extensions. The user must also ensure that the file name extension of the new file format is a member of the file-type inclusion list. The file-type inclusion list specifies which files that are crawled, based on their file name extensions. The system will only consider the new file format after a restart of the content processing components.

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)
