SharePoint 2013: How to Configure Subscription Settings Service Application using PowerShell

Last Updated March 28, 2014


This post describes how to configure the SharePoint Server 2013 Subscription Settings Service Application using PowerShell.


1)  Document the Naming Convention

Document a naming convention for each of the Subscription Settings Service Application components.

Application Pool Service Account:  Domain\SvcAccount (this should already be created)
Application Pool: SvcApp_SPServiceApplicationPool_03 (this should already be created)
Service Application: SvcApp_SPSubscriptionSettingsServiceApplication_01
Service Application Database: SvcApp_SPSubscriptionSettingsServiceApplication_01_DB_01 

Service Application Proxy:  The Proxy is named automatically by SharePoint 

2)  Open the SharePoint 2013 Management Shell as Administrator.

3)  Verify the Name of the Application Pool.
PS C:\ Get-SPServiceApplicationPool | Select Name

4)  Set the Service Application Pool in a variable.
$SvcAppPool03 = Get-SPServiceApplicationPool "SvcApp_SPServiceApplicationPool_03"

5)  Create the Service Application and assign it to the Application Pool.
$SvcApp = New-SPSubscriptionSettingsServiceApplication -ApplicationPool $SvcAppPool03 -Name "SvcApp_SPSubscriptionSettingsServiceApplication_01" -DatabaseName "SvcApp_SPSubscriptionSettingsServiceApplication_01_DB_01" -DatabaseServer "MSSQL Client Alias"
6)  Verify the Service Application.
PS C:\ Get-SPServiceApplication | Select Name

5)  Create the Service Application Proxy and assign it to the Service Application.
$SvcAppProxy = New-SPSubscriptionSettingsServiceApplicationProxy -ServiceApplication $SvcApp

It does not appear that the name of the Proxy can be set using the cmdlet.  SharePoint will name the Proxy automatically.

7)  Verify Service Application Proxy.
PS C:\ Get-SPServiceApplicationProxy | Select Name

8)  Start the Service Instance.
Get-SPServiceInstance | where{$_.TypeName -eq "Microsoft SharePoint Foundation Subscription Settings Service"} | Start-SPServiceInstance
