Update-RoleGroupMember

 

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

Topic Last Modified: 2013-01-11

Use the Update-RoleGroupMember cmdlet to modify the members of a management role group.

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

Update-RoleGroupMember -Identity <RoleGroupIdParameter> [-BypassSecurityGroupManagerCheck <SwitchParameter>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Members <MultiValuedProperty>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This example sets the Recipient Administrators role group membership list to Mark, Jane, Mary, and Fred.

Update-RoleGroupMember "Recipient Administrators" -Members "Mark", "Jane", "Mary", "Fred"

This example sets the Recipient Administrators role group membership list to Mark, Jane, Mary, and Fred. Because the user running the command wasn't added to the ManagedBy property of the role group, the BypassSecurityGroupManagerCheck switch must be used. The user is assigned the Role Management role, which enables the user to bypass the security group manager check.

Update-RoleGroupMember "Recipient Administrators" -Members "Mark", "Jane", "Mary", "Fred" -BypassSecurityGroupManagerCheck

This example adds multiple members to, and removes multiple members from, a role group without replacing all the existing members on the role group. This example makes use of multivalued property syntax that's described in the topic Modifying Multivalued Properties. When you use this multivalued property syntax, you must manually retrieve the Identity of the mailbox or security group that you want to add to or remove from the role group. Use the syntax that matches the type of object you want to add or remove:

  • Mailbox   If you want to add or remove a mailbox, use the syntax (Get-Mailbox "<Alias or Name>").Identity

  • Security Group   If you want to add or remove a security group, use the syntax (Get-Group "<Name>").Identity

Update-RoleGroupMember "Organization Management" -Members @{Add=(Get-Mailbox David).Identity, (Get-Group "Help Desk Managers").Identity; Remove=(Get-Mailbox "Christine").Identity, (Get-Mailbox "Isabel").Identity}

The Update-RoleGroupMember cmdlet enables you to replace the entire membership list for a role group or perform programmatic addition or removal of multiple members at a single time. The membership list that you specify with the Members parameter on this cmdlet replaces the membership list for the specific role group. For this reason, take care when using this cmdlet so you don't mistakenly overwrite role group membership.

The Add-RoleGroupMember and Remove-RoleGroupMember cmdlets can be used to add or remove role group members. You can combine these cmdlets with other cmdlets, such as Get-Mailbox, to add or remove multiple members without overwriting the entire membership list at once.

If the ManagedBy property has been populated with role group managers, the user updating role group membership must be a role group manager. Alternately, if the user is a member of the Organization Management role group or is directly or indirectly assigned the Role Management role, the BypassSecurityGroupManagerCheck switch can be used to override the security group management check.

If the role group is a linked role group, you can't use the Update-RoleGroupMember cmdlet to modify members on the role group. Instead, you need to modify members on the foreign universal security group (USG) that's linked to the linked role group. To find the foreign USG that's linked to a role group, use the Get-RoleGroup cmdlet.

For more information about role groups, see Understanding Management Role Groups.

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 "Role groups" entry in the Role Management Permissions topic.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.RoleGroupIdParameter

The Identity parameter specifies the role group whose membership you want to modify. If the name of the role group contains spaces, enclose the name in quotation marks (").

BypassSecurityGroupManagerCheck

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The BypassSecurityGroupManagerCheck switch enables a user who hasn't been added to the ManagedBy property to modify a role group's membership. The user must be a member of the Organization Management role group or be assigned, either directly or indirectly, the Role Management role.

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.

Members

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.MultiValuedProperty

The Members parameter specifies the mailboxes or USG that should be members of a security group. If the member name contains spaces, enclose the name in quotation marks ("). Separate multiple members using commas.

CautionCaution:
The list that you specify using the Members parameter overwrites the existing membership list of the role group. If you want to add or remove individual members to or from a role group, use the Add-RoleGroupMember or Remove-RoleGroupMember cmdlets.

If you want to add or remove multiple members without replacing the entire membership list, see the Examples section.

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.
