In the last article, we saw how to create the Result Source using C# and through the Central Administration. Now, let us see, how to create the same using PowerShell. The script is self-explanatory. There is nothing much to explain on the script as well as about the Result Source as we discussed much about result source on the previous article itself.

Create Result Source

 ################## Create Result Source #####################
 
 $publishingSite = Get-SPSite "http://c4968397007:1000/"
 $sspApp = Get-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication;
 
 # load Search assembly
 
 [void] [Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.Office.Server.Search")
 
 # create manager instances
 
 $fedManager = New-Object Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.Query.FederationManager($sspApp)
 $searchOwner = New-Object Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchObjectOwner([Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchObjectLevel]::Ssa, $publishingSite.RootWeb)
 
 # define query
 
 $query = '{searchTerms?}'
 $queryProperties = New-Object Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Query.Rules.QueryTransformProperties
 # define custom sorting
 $sortCollection = New-Object Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Query.SortCollection
 $sortCollection.Add("Title", [Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Query.SortDirection]::Ascending)
 $queryProperties["SortList"] = [Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Query.SortCollection]$sortCollection
 
 # create result source
 $resultSource = $fedManager.CreateSource($searchOwner)
 $resultSource.Name = 'Result Source Through PowerShell'
 $resultSource.ProviderId = $fedManager.ListProviders()['Local SharePoint Provider'].Id
 $resultSource.CreateQueryTransform($queryProperties, $query)
 
 $resultSource.Commit()
 
 ################## Delete Result Source #####################
 
 $publishingSite = Get-SPSite "http://c4968397007:1000/"
 $sspApp = Get-SPEnterpriseSearchServiceApplication;
 
 # load Search assembly
 
 [void] [Reflection.Assembly]::LoadWithPartialName("Microsoft.Office.Server.Search")
 
 # create manager instances
 
 $fedManager = New-Object Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.Query.FederationManager($sspApp)
 $searchOwner = New-Object Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchObjectOwner([Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchObjectLevel]::Ssa, $publishingSite.RootWeb)
 $resultSource = $fedManager.GetSourceByName("Result Source Through PowerShell",$searchOwner)
 
 #The below lines are used to List all the result Sources.  This is not relevant for deletion. 
 $searchObjectFilter = New-Object Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchObjectFilter($searchOwner)
 $fedManager.ListSources($searchObjectFilter,$true)
 
 $fedManager.RemoveSource($resultSource)
 

Here one important thing with the SearchObjectLevel.

There are 4 different Levels are there.

([Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchObjectLevel]:: SPSite

([Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchObjectLevel]:: SPSiteSubscription

([Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchObjectLevel]:: SPWeb

([Microsoft.Office.Server.Search.Administration.SearchObjectLevel]:: Ssa

We need to retrieve the result source accordingly.

Happy Coding.
