Topic Last Modified: 2014-07-03

This cmdlet is available only in on-premises Exchange Server 2013.

Use the Get-MailboxImportRequestStatistics cmdlet to view detailed information about import requests.

This cmdlet is available only in the Mailbox Import Export role, and by default, that role isn't assigned to a role group. To use this cmdlet, you need to add the Mailbox Import Export role to a role group (for example, to the Organization Management role group). For more information, see the "Add a role to a role group" section in Manage role groups.

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

Get-MailboxImportRequestStatistics -Identity <MailboxImportRequestIdParameter> <COMMON PARAMETERS>

Get-MailboxImportRequestStatistics -RequestQueue <DatabaseIdParameter> [-RequestGuid <Guid>] <COMMON PARAMETERS>

COMMON PARAMETERS: [-Diagnostic <SwitchParameter>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-IncludeReport <SwitchParameter>]

This example returns the default statistics for the second import request for Tony Smith. The type of information returned by default includes name, mailbox, and status.

Get-MailboxImportRequestStatistics -Identity Tony\MailboxImport1

This example returns the detailed statistics for the second import request for Tony Smith's mailbox and exports the report to a .csv file.

Get-MailboxImportRequestStatistics -Identity Tony\MailboxImport1 | Export-CSV \\SERVER01\ImportRequest_Reports\Tony_Importstats.csv 

This example returns additional information about the import request for Tony Smith's mailbox by using the IncludeReport parameter and by pipelining the results to the Format-List command.

Get-MailboxImportRequestStatistics -Identity Tony\LegalHold -IncludeReport | Format-List

This example returns additional information for all the import requests that have a status of Failed by using the IncludeReport parameter, and then saves the information to the text file AllImportReports.txt.

Get-MailboxImportRequest -Status Failed | Get-MailboxImportRequestStatistics -IncludeReport | Format-List > AllImportReports.txt

You can pipeline the Get-MailboxImportRequestStatistics cmdlet from the Get-MailboxImportRequest cmdlet.

The RequestQueue parameter syntax set is for debugging purposes only.

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 "Import Export" entry in the Recipients Permissions topic.


Parameter Required Type Description




The Identity parameter specifies the identity of the import request. By default, import requests are named <alias>\MailboxImportX (where X = 0–9). If you specified a name when you created the import request, use the following syntax: <alias>\<name>.




The RequestQueue parameter specifies the mailbox database on which the mailbox or archive of the request resides. You can use one of the following values:

  • GUID of the database

  • Database name

This parameter can't be used in conjunction with the Identity or MRSInstance parameters.




The Diagnostic switch specifies whether to retrieve extremely detailed information about the mailbox import request statistics.




The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that retrieves data from Active Directory.




The IncludeReport switch specifies whether to return additional details, which can be used for troubleshooting.




The RequestGuid parameter specifies the unique identifier for the import request. To find the import request GUID, use the Get-MailboxImportRequest cmdlet. If you specify the RequestGuid parameter, you must also specify the RequestQueue parameter. You can't use this parameter in conjunction with the Identity parameter.
