Parameters

1

ParameterRequiredTypeDescription
UserProfileServiceApplicationTrueSPServiceApplicationPipeBind

Specifies the service application that contains the audience to remove.

The type must be a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; a valid name of a service application (for example, ServiceApp1); or an instance of a valid SPServiceApplication object.

SiteSubscriptionFalseSPSiteSubscriptionPipeBind

Specifies the site subscription containing the audiences to update.

The type must be a valid URL, in the form http://server_name; a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; a valid name of a site subscription (for example, SiteSubscription1); or an instance of a valid SiteSubscription object.

IdentityTrueString

The name of the audience to remove.

DeleteRulesOnlyFalseSwitchParameter

Delete only the rules associated with the audience.

AssignmentCollectionFalseSPAssignmentCollection

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.

2
