Enable-TransportRule

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Online Protection, Exchange Online

Topic Last Modified: 2014-04-14

This cmdlet is available in on-premises Exchange Server 2013 and in the cloud-based service. Some parameters and settings may be exclusive to one environment or the other.

Use the Enable-TransportRule cmdlet to enable a specific transport rule for messages that pass through the Transport service on a Mailbox server.

For information about the parameter sets in the Syntax section below, see Syntax.

Enable-TransportRule -Identity <RuleIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Mode <Audit | AuditAndNotify | Enforce>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This example enables the transport rule Disclaimer-Finance.

Enable-TransportRule "Disclaimer-Finance"

This example enables the transport rule Require approval of messages to contoso.com in audit mode, so you can see how the rule would function by analyzing the related entries in message tracking logs.

Enable-TransportRule "Require approval of messages to contoso.com" -Mode Audit

You can turn specific transport rules on or off in your organization at any time using the Enable-TransportRule and Disable-TransportRule cmdlets. To learn more about transport rules, see Transport rules.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although all parameters for this cmdlet are listed in this topic, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To see what permissions you need, see the "Transport rules" entry in the Messaging policy and compliance permissions topic.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.MessagingPolicies.Rules.Tasks.RuleIdParameter

The Identity parameter specifies the rule you want to turn on. Enter either the name or the GUID of the rule. You can omit this parameter label.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Confirm switch causes the command to pause processing and requires you to acknowledge what the command will do before processing continues. You don't have to specify a value with the Confirm switch.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

This parameter is available only in on-premises Exchange 2013.

The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that writes this configuration change to Active Directory.

The DomainController parameter isn't supported on Edge Transport servers. An Edge Transport server uses the local instance of Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) to read and write data.

Mode

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.MessagingPolicies.Rules.RuleMode

The Mode parameter specifies in which mode this rule will operate after it's turned on. Valid values for this parameter include:

  • Audit   The rule is turned on, and what would have happened if the rule was enforced is logged in message tracking logs. Exchange doesn't take any action that impacts the delivery of the message.

  • AuditAndNotify   The rule is turned on, and it operates the same way it would in Audit mode, but notifications are also enabled.

  • Enforce   The rule is turned on, and all actions specified in the rule are taken.

The default value is Enforce.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The WhatIf switch instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf switch, you can view what changes would occur without having to apply any of those changes. You don't have to specify a value with the WhatIf switch.
