Parameters

1

ParameterRequiredTypeDescription
ListFalseSPListPipeBind

Specifies the List to add the file to.

The type must be a valid absolute URL, in the form http://contoso.sharepoint.com/site_name/lists/list_name, or an SPOList object, Microsoft.SharePoint.Client.List object, List title, or GUID representing the List ID.

FileTrueString

Specify the path to the file to add to the list.

OverwriteFalseSwitchParameter

Overwrite an existing file if present.

FieldValuesFalsePropertiesPipeBind

The collection of field values to set where the key is the internal field name. The type must be a hash table where each key represents the name of a field whose value should be set to the corresponding key value (e.g., @{"Field1"="Value1";"Field2"="Value2"}). Alternatively, provide the path to a file with XML property settings (<Properties><Property Name="Name1">Value1</Property><Property Name="Name2">Value2</Property></Properties>).

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

ParameterRequiredTypeDescription
FolderFalseSPFolderPipeBind

Specifies the Folder to add the file to.

The type must be a valid SPOFolder object.

FileTrueString

OverwriteFalseSwitchParameter
