Syntax

Remove-SPEnterpriseSearchQueryKeyword
      [-Identity] <KeywordPipeBind>

Description

The Remove-SPEnterpriseSearchQueryKeyword cmdlet deletes unused or unwanted keywords from the query keyword collection.

You cannot use this cmdlet after a site collection is upgraded to SharePoint Server because keywords and Best Bets are automatically migrated to query rules.

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

Examples

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

Get-SPEnterpriseSearchQueryKeyword -Identity Engineering -Site https://myserver/sites/engineering | Remove-SPEnterpriseSearchQueryKeyword -Site https://myserver/sites/engineering

This example removes the Engineering keyword from the site collection at https://myserver/sites/engineering.

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.
