Description

This cmdlet deletes a specified result source. This cmdlet supports the same delete operations as are supported through the "Manage Result Sources" page in Central Administration. The result source cannot be a built-in source (a built-in source has the BuiltIn property set to true).

Required Parameters

-Identity

Specifies the result source to delete. The result source cannot be a built in source. The type must be a valid GUID string, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; a valid name of a result source (for example, "Custom SharePoint Result Source"); or an instance of a valid Source object.

Type:ResultSourcePipeBind

Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True (ByValue)

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

Specifies the search application. 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.

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)
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:SharePoint Server 2010, SharePoint Server 2013, SharePoint Server 2016
