Description

The Set-SPExcelDataProvider cmdlet sets the properties of a data provider that is stored in the list of safe data providers. Excel Services Application refreshes external data connections only if the data provider for that connection is in the list of safe data providers.

Required Parameters

-Identity

Specifies the SPExcelDataProvider object to update.

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.
