Disable-CsPublicProvider

 

Topic Last Modified: 2013-03-07

Disables a public provider configured for use in your organization. A public provider is an organization that provides instant messaging, presence, and related services to the general public. Lync Server ships with three public providers configured but not enabled: Yahoo; AIM (AOL); and Messenger (MSN). This cmdlet was introduced in Lync Server 2010.

Disable-CsPublicProvider [-Identity <XdsGlobalRelativeIdentity>] <COMMON PARAMETERS>
Disable-CsPublicProvider [-Instance <PSObject>] <COMMON PARAMETERS>
COMMON PARAMETERS: [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Example 1 disables the public provider with the Identity Messenger. This command will return an error if MSN is already disabled.

Disable-CsPublicProvider -Identity "Messenger"

Example 2 disables all the public providers that are currently enabled. To do this, the command first uses the Get-CsPublicProvider cmdlet to return a collection of all the public providers currently in use in the organization. This collection is piped to the Where-Object cmdlet, which picks out only those providers where the Enabled property is equal to True. In turn, this filtered collection is piped to the Disable-CsPublicProvider cmdlet, which disables each provider in the collection.

Get-CsPublicProvider | Where-Object {$_.Enabled -eq $True} | Disable-CsPublicProvider

The command shown in Example 3 disables all the public providers that are current enabled and that have a verification level set to AlwaysVerifiable. To accomplish this task, the command first calls the Get-CsPublicProvider cmdlet to return a collection of all the public providers currently in use in the organization. This collection is then piped to the Where-Object cmdlet, which selects the providers that meet two criteria: 1) the VerificationLevel property is equal to AlwaysVerifiable; and, 2) the Enabled property is equal to True. (The -and operator tells the Where-Object cmdlet that objects must meet all the specified criteria in order to be selected.) The filtered collection is then piped to the Disable-CsPublicProvider cmdlet, which disables each provider in that collection.

Get-CsPublicProvider | Where-Object {$_.VerificationLevel -ne "AlwaysVerifiable" -and $_.Enabled -eq $True} | Disable-CsPublicProvider

Federation is a means by which two organizations can set up a trust relationship that facilitates communication between the two groups. When federation has been established, users in the two organizations can send each other instant messages, subscribe for presence notifications, and otherwise communicate with one another using SIP applications such as Lync 2013. Lync Server allows for three types of federation: 1) direct federation between your organization and another; 2) federation between your organization and a public provider; and, 3) federation between your organization and a third-party hosting provider.

A public provider is an organization that provides Session Initiation Protocol (SIP) communication services for the general public. When you establish a federation relationship with a public provider, you effectively establish federation with any user who has an account hosted by that provider. For example, if you federate with Messenger (MSN), then your users will be able to exchange instant messages and presence information with anyone who has a Messenger instant messaging account.

In order to federate with a public provider you need to create and enable a new public provider. (In addition, the public provider will need to create a federation relationship with you.) When you create a public provider, you have the option of either enabling or disabling that federation relationship. If a public provider is enabled, then users in your organization will be able to exchange instant messages and presence information with people who have accounts with the public provider. If a public provider is disabled, then your ability to communicate with people who have accounts with the public provider will be suspended, and will remain suspended until the provider has been re-enabled. If you need to temporarily suspend a provider relationship you can do so by using the Disable-CsPublicProvider cmdlet. If you prefer to delete that provider altogether, use the Remove-CsPublicProvider cmdlet.

Who can run this cmdlet: By default, members of the following groups are authorized to run the Disable-CsPublicProvider cmdlet locally: RTCUniversalServerAdmins. To return a list of all the role-based access control (RBAC) roles this cmdlet has been assigned to (including any custom RBAC roles you have created yourself), run the following command from the Windows PowerShell prompt:

Get-CsAdminRole | Where-Object {$_.Cmdlets –match "Disable-CsPublicProvider"}

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Prompts you for confirmation before executing the command.

Force

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Suppresses the display of any non-fatal error message that might occur when running the command.

Identity

Optional

Microsoft.Rtc.Management.Xds.XdsGlobalRelativeIdentity

Unique identifier for the public provider to be disabled. The Identity is typically the name of the website providing the services (for example, Yahoo!; AOL; MSN; etc.).

Instance

Optional

DisplayPublicProvider object

Allows you to pass a reference to an object to the cmdlet rather than set individual parameter values.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Describes what would happen if you executed the command without actually executing the command.

Microsoft.Rtc.Management.WritableConfig.Settings.Edge.DisplayPublicProvider object. The Disable-CsPublicProvider cmdlet accepts pipelined instances of the public provider object.

None. Instead, the cmdlet disables instances of the Microsoft.Rtc.Management.WritableConfig.Settings.Edge.DisplayPublicProvider object.
