Use the New-UMAutoAttendant cmdlet to create a new Unified Messaging (UM) auto attendant.


New-UMAutoAttendant -Name <String> -UMDialPlan <UMDialPlanIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-DTMFFallbackAutoAttendant <UMAutoAttendantIdParameter>] [-Organization <OrganizationIdParameter>] [-PilotIdentifierList <MultiValuedProperty>] [-SharedUMDialPlan <SwitchParameter>] [-SpeechEnabled <$true | $false>] [-Status <Enabled | Disabled>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Parameter Required Type Description

Name

Required

System.String

The Name parameter specifies the display name for the UM auto attendant. The display name for the new UM auto attendant can contain as many as 64 characters.

UMDialPlan

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.UMDialPlanIdParameter

The UMDialPlan parameter specifies the UM dial plan identifier for the UM dial plan to be associated with this UM auto attendant.

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

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

DTMFFallbackAutoAttendant

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.UMAutoAttendantIdParameter

The DTMFFallbackAutoAttendant parameter specifies a secondary UM auto attendant. A secondary UM auto attendant can be used only if the SpeechEnabled parameter is set to $true.

Organization

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.OrganizationIdParameter

The Organization parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.

PilotIdentifierList

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.MultiValuedProperty

The PilotIdentifierList parameter specifies a list of one or more pilot numbers. Pilot numbers route incoming calls to Unified Messaging servers. The calls are then answered by the UM auto attendant.

SharedUMDialPlan

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The SharedUMDialPlan parameter specifies if the auto attendant being created is linked or associated with a dial plan outside the scope of the organization. If you specify this parameter, the auto attendant can be linked with another tenant's dial plan. This parameter is used during tenant provisioning and is only used in a data center.

SpeechEnabled

Optional

System.Boolean

The SpeechEnabled parameter specifies whether the UM auto attendant is speech-enabled. The default value is $true. If this parameter is omitted, or if the value is $false, the UM auto attendant isn't speech-enabled.

Status

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Directory.SystemConfiguration.StatusEnum

The Status parameter specifies whether the UM auto attendant being created will be enabled. If this parameter isn't supplied, the UM auto attendant is created but left in a disabled state.

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.

The New-UMAutoAttendant cmdlet creates one or more UM auto attendants. UM auto attendants have a forest-wide scope in the configuration container in Active Directory. When you create a new UM auto attendant, it's linked to a single UM dial plan that contains a list of extension numbers. Linking the UM auto attendant to the UM dial plan enables the associated Unified Messaging servers to answer incoming calls using the UM auto attendant.

After this task is completed, a new UM auto attendant is created.

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 "UM auto attendants" entry in the Unified Messaging Permissions topic.

Exceptions Description

 

 

This example creates a new UM auto attendant named MyUMAutoAttendant that can accept incoming calls but isn't speech-enabled.

New-UMAutoAttendant -Name MyUMAutoAttendant -UMDialPlan MyUMDialPlan -PilotIdentifierList 55000 -Status Enabled

This example creates a new speech-enabled UM auto attendant named MyUMAutoAttendant.

New-UMAutoAttendant -Name MyUMAutoAttendant -UMDialPlan MyUMDialPlan -PilotIdentifierList 56000,56100 -SpeechEnabled $true
