Examples

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

C:\PS>Get-SPExcelServiceApplication | Get-SPExcelDataConnectionLibrary | Remove-SPExcelDataConnectionLibrary

This example removes all data connection libraries from all Excel Services Application running in the farm.

Connection files are no longer loaded from any libraries. Workbooks that depend on any connection files might not refresh data.

Required Parameters

-ExcelServiceApplication

Specifies the Excel Services Application Web service application that contains the SPExcelDataConnectionLibrary list object.

The type must be a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; a valid name of an Excel Services Application Web service application in the farm (for example, MyExcelService1); or an instance of a valid SPExcelServiceApplication object.

-Identity

Specifies the data connection library to remove.

The type must be a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; a valid name of a data connection library (for example, DataConnectionLib1); a valid URL, in the form http://server_name; or an instance of a valid SPExcelDCL 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.

Default value:None
