  • ItemPath
    Type: System.String

    Type: System.String

SharePoint Mode Required Permissions


The Item parameter is valid only if the value of the ExecutionSetting parameter is Snapshot. Set the value of Item to nulla null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) (Nothing in Visual Basic) if ExecutionSetting is set to Live. If you are using a shared schedule, set the value of Item to a ScheduleReference object that references an existing shared schedule. If you are defining a unique schedule, set the value of Item to the ScheduleDefinition object that defines a unique schedule. If the execution options for an item are based on a shared schedule and that shared schedule is deleted, the schedule is then associated with the individual item.

If you change the value of ExecutionSetting from Live to Snapshot, the item is removed from the cache.
