Description

This cmdlet is used when the search functionality is first configured or when a new shared search application is added to a farm. SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication represents a self-contained aggregation of indexed content and properties available for search and provides an anchor class for setting global search properties. A farm can include multiple search service applications.

For permissions and the most current information about Windows PowerShell for SharePoint Products, see the online documentation at SharePoint Server Cmdlets.

Examples

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

$appPool = New-SPServiceApplicationPool -Name 'SharePoint Web Services Default' -Account 'CONTOSO\ServiceApps'
New-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication -Name "Search Service Application" -ApplicationPool $appPool

This example creates a new search service application named NewSSA in a new application pool.

A search service application that is created in this manner will have active search topology, but no search components.

Parameters

-AdminApplicationPool

Specifies the application pool to be used with the SearchAdminWebServiceApplication that is associated with SearchServiceApplication. If not specified, ApplicationPool will be used.

Type:SPIisWebServiceApplicationPoolPipeBind
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:SharePoint Server 2010, SharePoint Server 2013, SharePoint Server 2016, SharePoint Server 2019
-ApplicationPool

Specifies the IIS application pool to use for the new search application.

The type must be a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; a valid URL of a search application, in the form https://server_name; or an instance of a valid SPIisWebServiceApplicationPool object.

-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.
