Remove a Role from a Role Group

Exchange 2010
 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2012-07-23

Removing a management role from a management role group is the best and simplest way to revoke permissions granted to a group of administrators or specialist users in Microsoft Exchange Server 2010. If you don't want administrators or specialist users to have permissions to manage a feature, you remove the management role from the management role group that manages the permissions. After the role is removed, the members of the role group will no longer have permissions to manage the feature.

For more information about role groups in Exchange 2010, see Understanding Management Role Groups.

noteNote:
Some role groups, such as the Organization Management role group, restrict what roles can be removed from a role group. For more information, see Understanding Management Role Groups.
If an administrator is a member of another role group that contains management roles that grants permissions to manage the feature, you need to either remove the administrator from the other role groups, or remove the role that grants permissions to manage the feature from the other role groups.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Role groups" entry in the Role Management Permissions topic.

importantImportant:
You can't use the Exchange Control Panel (ECP) to remove roles from a role group if you've used the Exchange Management Shell to configure multiple scopes or exclusive scopes on the role group. If you've configured multiple scopes or exclusive scopes on the role group, you must use the Shell procedures later in this topic to remove roles from the role group. For more information about management role scopes, see Understanding Management Role Scopes.
  1. In the EMC, navigate to Toolbox in the console tree.
  2. In the work pane, double-click Role Based Access Control (RBAC) User Editor to open the user editor in the Exchange Control Panel (ECP).
  3. Provide credentials in the Domain\user name and Password fields for an account that has the permissions needed to open the user editor in the ECP. Click Sign in.
  4. Click the Administrator Roles tab.
  5. Select the role group you want to remove roles from, and then click Details.
  6. In the Roles section, select one or more roles that you want to remove, and then click Remove.
  7. Click Save to save changes to the role group.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Role groups" entry in the Role Management Permissions topic.

You can remove roles from role groups by retrieving the associated management role assignment using the Get-ManagementRoleAssignment cmdlet and then piping the role assignment returned to the Remove-ManagementRoleAssignment cmdlet. Unless you want to remove both delegating and regular role assignments at the same time, specify the Delegating parameter to specify whether you want to remove regular or delegating role assignments.

For more information about regular and delegating role assignments, see Understanding Management Role Assignments.

This procedure uses pipelining. For more information about pipelining, see Pipelining.

To remove a role from a role group, use the following syntax.

Get-ManagementRoleAssignment -RoleAssignee <role group name> -Role <role name> -Delegating <$true | $false> | Remove-ManagementRoleAssignment

This example removes the Distribution Groups role, which enables administrators to manage distribution groups, from the Seattle Recipient Administrators role group. Because we want to remove the role assignment that provides permissions to manage distribution groups, the Delegating parameter is set to $False, which returns only regular role assignments.

Get-ManagementRoleAssignment -RoleAssignee "Seattle Recipient Administrators" -Role "Distribution Groups" -Delegating $false | Remove-ManagementRoleAssignment

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see Remove-ManagementRoleAssignment.
