Description

After you upgrade a Search service application to SharePoint Server, you can view shared scopes, but you cannot create, update, or delete them. Therefore, you cannot use this cmdlet for shared scopes after upgrade. However, you can convert shared scopes to result sources, which serve a similar purpose. Similarly, after you upgrade a SharePoint Server site collection to SharePoint Server, you can view local scopes, but you cannot create, update, or delete them. Therefore, you cannot use this cmdlet for local scopes after you upgrade a site collection. However, you can convert local scopes to result sources, which serve a similar purpose.

The Remove-SPEnterpriseSearchQueryScope cmdlet deletes one or more specified shared scopes from the query scope collection. A query scope represents a query results scope used by all shared search applications on the farm.

Examples

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

C:\PS>$ssa = Get-SPenterpriseSearchServiceApplication -Identity MySSA
Get-SPEnterpriseSearchQueryScope -Identity MustCrawl -SearchApplication $ssa | Remove-SPEnterpriseSearchQueryScope

This example removes a scope named MustCrawl from a search service application named MySSA.

Required Parameters

-Identity

Specifies the query scope to delete.

The type must be a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; a valid name of a scope (for example, Scope1); or an instance of a valid Scope object.

Type:ScopePipeBind
Position:1
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.
