New-FederationTrust -Name <String> -Thumbprint <String> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-MetadataUrl <Uri>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]


New-FederationTrust -Name <String> -SkipNamespaceProviderProvisioning <SwitchParameter> -Thumbprint <String> [-AdministratorProvisioningId <String>] [-ApplicationIdentifier <String>] [-ApplicationUri <String>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-MetadataUrl <Uri>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Parameter Required Type Description

Name

Required

System.String

The Name parameter specifies a friendly name for the federation trust.

SkipNamespaceProviderProvisioning

Required

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The SkipNamespaceProviderProvisioning switch specifies that the trust and federated organization identifier are provisioned externally without using federation functionality in Exchange 2010.

If you use this switch, you must specify the ApplicationIdentifier, ApplicationUri, and AdministratorProvisioningId parameters.

Thumbprint

Required

System.String

The Thumbprint parameter specifies the thumbprint of a certificate issued by a public certification authority (CA) trusted by the Microsoft Federation Gateway. For more details, see Understanding Federation.

AdministratorProvisioningId

Optional

System.String

The AdministratorProvisioningId parameter specifies the provisioning key returned by the Microsoft Federation Gateway when an organization has already registered a SiteID or ApplicationID.

If you specify the AdministratorProvisioningId parameter, you must use the SkipNamespaceProviderProvisioning switch and also specify the ApplicationIdentifier and ApplicationUri parameters.

ApplicationIdentifier

Optional

System.String

The ApplicationIdentifier parameter specifies the SiteID or ApplicationID when an organization has already registered a SiteID or ApplicationID.

If you specify the ApplicationIdentifier parameter, you must use the SkipNamespaceProviderProvisioning switch and also specify the AdministratorProvisioningId and ApplicationUri parameters.

ApplicationUri

Optional

System.String

The ApplicationUri parameter specifies the primary domain used for the federated organization identifier.

If you specify the ApplicationUri parameter, you must use the SkipNamespaceProviderProvisioning switch and also specify the AdministratorProvisioningId and ApplicationIdentifier parameters.

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.

MetadataUrl

Optional

System.Uri

The MetadataUrl parameter specifies the URL where WS-FederationMetadata is published by the Microsoft Federation Gateway.

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.

Federation trusts are trusts created between a Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 organization and the Microsoft Federation Gateway. A federation trust is required to configure a federated organization identifier for federated sharing.
