Returns a ranking model.


Get-SPEnterpriseSearchRankingModel [[-Identity] <RankingModelPipeBind>] -SearchApplication <SearchServiceApplicationPipeBind> [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>]

Detailed Description

The Get-SPEnterpriseSearchRankingModel cmdlet reads the RankingModel object when a ranking model is created, removed, or updated.

If the Identity parameter is not specified or the identity does not match any of the ranking models in the collection, an exception is thrown and the default ranking model is used.


Parameter Required Type Description




Specifies the ranking model to get.

The type must be a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh, or an instance of a valid RankingModel object.




Specifies the search application that contains the ranking model.

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.




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.
