Get-PublicFolder [-Identity <PublicFolderIdParameter>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Server <ServerIdParameter>]


Get-PublicFolder [-Identity <PublicFolderIdParameter>] -Recurse <SwitchParameter> [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-ResultSize <Unlimited>] [-Server <ServerIdParameter>]


Get-PublicFolder [-Identity <PublicFolderIdParameter>] -GetChildren <SwitchParameter> [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-ResultSize <Unlimited>] [-Server <ServerIdParameter>]

To run the Get-PublicFolder cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Public Folder Administrator role and local Administrators group for the target server.

Required

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Recurse parameter specifies that the command must return the specified public folder and all its children.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

To specify the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that retrieves data from the Active Directory directory service, include the DomainController parameter in the command.

Optional

Use the Identity parameter to specify the GUID or public folder name that represents a specific public folder. You can also include the path using the format TopLevelPublicFolder\PublicFolder.

The ResultSize parameter specifies the maximum number of results to return. The default maximum is 10,000. For no limit on the returned results, set this parameter to Unlimited. This parameter can only be passed in combination with the Recurse or the GetChildren parameters.

  • The second example returns the names of all the system folders (which are not shown by default), starting at the system folder root (\NON_IPM_SUBTREE).
  • The third example returns the public folder with the specified long-term entry identifier.
  • The fourth example returns the Pending Litigation public folder from \Legal\Documents\.
  • The fifth example returns the Pending Litigation public folder from \Legal\Documents\ and up to 9,999 public folders under the Pending Litigation public folder.
  • The sixth example returns the Pending Litigation public folder from \Legal\Documents\ and all the public folders under it, without a limit on the number returned.
