Examples

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

C:\PS>Set-SPUsageApplication -Identity "Usage and Health data collection" -DatabaseServer "Server Name" -DatabaseName "New Logging DB"

This example changes the database server and database name used by the usage logging service to store logging data.

Required Parameters

-Identity

Specifies the usage application to update.

The type must be a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh, a valid name of a usage application (for example; UsageApp1); or an instance of a valid SPServiceApplication object.

Type:SPUsageApplicationPipeBind
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.
