Detailed Description

The Update-SPUserSolution cmdlet upgrades a sandboxed solution that has already been activated in a specified site collection. A user solution is a sandboxed solution. Before you use this cmdlet to upgrade the activated solution, use the Add-SPUserSolution cmdlet to upload the upgraded solution to the solution gallery. For permissions and the most current information about Windows PowerShell for SharePoint Products, see the online documentation at http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=251831 (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=251831).

Parameters

-Identity [<SPUserSolutionPipeBind>]

Specifies the sandboxed solution to upgrade.

The type must be a valid name of a sandboxed solution (for example, UserSolution1); or an instance of a valid SPUserSolution object.

Required?   True
Position?   1
Default value?  
Accept pipeline input?   True
Accept wildcard characters?   False

-Site [<SPSitePipeBind>]

Upgrade the sandboxed solution for the specified site collection.

The type must be a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; a valid URL, in the form http://server_name; or an instance of a valid SPSite object.

Required?   True
Position?   Named
Default value?  
Accept pipeline input?   False
Accept wildcard characters?   False

-ToSolution [<SPUserSolutionPipeBind>]

Specifies the sandboxed solution you want to upgrade to.

The type must be a valid name of a sandboxed solution (for example, UserSolution1); or an instance of a valid SPUserSolution object.

Required?   True
Position?   Named
Default value?  
Accept pipeline input?   False
Accept wildcard characters?   False

-AssignmentCollection [<SPAssignmentCollection>]

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.

Required?   False
Position?   Named
Default value?  
Accept pipeline input?   True
Accept wildcard characters?   False

-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]

Prompts you for confirmation before executing the command. For more information, type the following command: get-help about_commonparameters

Required?   False
Position?   Named
Default value?  
Accept pipeline input?   False
Accept wildcard characters?   False

-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]

Displays a message that describes the effect of the command instead of executing the command. For more information, type the following command: get-help about_commonparameters

Required?   False
Position?   Named
Default value?  
Accept pipeline input?   False
Accept wildcard characters?   False
