Test-CsVoiceNormalizationRule

 

Topic Last Modified: 2012-08-13

Tests a telephone number against a voice normalization rule and returns the number after the normalization rule has been applied. Voice normalization rules are used to convert a telephone dialing requirement (for example, you must dial 9 to access an outside line) to the E.164 phone number format used by Lync Server. This cmdlet was introduced in Lync Server 2010.

Test-CsVoiceNormalizationRule -DialedNumber <PhoneNumber> -NormalizationRule <NormalizationRule>

This example runs a voice normalization test against the voice normalization rule with the Identity "global/11 digit number rule". First the Get-CsVoiceNormalizationRule cmdlet is run to retrieve the rule with the Identity "global/11 digit number rule". That rule object is then piped to the Test-CsVoiceNormalizationRule cmdlet, where the rule is tested against the telephone number 14255559999. The output will be the DialedNumber after the voice normalization rule "global/11 digit number rule" has been applied. If this rule does not apply to the DialedNumber value (for example, if the normalization rule matches the pattern for an 11-digit number and you supply a 7-digit number) no value will be returned.

Get-CsVoiceNormalizationRule -Identity "global/11 digit number rule" | Test-CsVoiceNormalizationRule -DialedNumber 14255559999

Example 2 is identical to Example 1 except that instead of piping the results of the Get operation directly to the Test cmdlet, the object is first stored in the variable $a and then is passed as the value to the parameter NormalizationRule to be used as the voice normalization rule against which the test will run.

$a = Get-CsVoiceNormalizationRule -Identity "global/11 digit number rule"
Test-CsVoiceNormalizationRule -DialedNumber 5551212 -NormalizationRule $a

This example runs a voice normalization test against all voice normalization rules defined within the Lync Server deployment. First the Get-CsVoiceNormalizationRule cmdlet is run (with no parameters) to retrieve all the voice normalization rules. The collection of rules that is returned is then piped to the Test-CsVoiceNormalizationRule cmdlet, where each rule in the collection is tested against the telephone number 2065559999. The output will be a list of translated numbers, one for each rule tested. If a rule does not apply to the DialedNumber value (for example, if the normalization rule matches the pattern for an 11-digit number and you supply a 7-digit number) there will be a blank line in the list for that rule.

Get-CsVoiceNormalizationRule | Test-CsVoiceNormalizationRule -DialedNumber 2065559999

This cmdlet allows you to see the results of applying a voice normalization rule to a given telephone number. Voice normalization rules are a required part of phone authorization and call routing. They define the requirements for converting--or translating-- numbers from a format typically entered by users to a standard (E.164) format. Use this cmdlet to troubleshoot dialing issues or to verify that rules will work as expected against given numbers.

Who can run this cmdlet: By default, members of the following groups are authorized to run the Test-CsVoiceNormalizationRule 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 "Test-CsVoiceNormalizationRule"}

 

Parameter Required Type Description

DialedNumber

Required

Microsoft.Rtc.Management.Voice.PhoneNumber

The phone number against which you want to test the normalization rule specified in the NormalizationRule parameter.

Full Data Type: Microsoft.Rtc.Management.Voice.PhoneNumber

NormalizationRule

Required

Microsoft.Rtc.Management.WritableConfig.Policy.Voice.NormalizationRule

An object containing a reference to the normalization rule against which you want to test the number specified in the DialedNumber parameter.

You can retrieve voice normalization rules by calling the Get-CsVoiceNormalizationRule cmdlet.

Microsoft.Rtc.Management.WritableConfig.Policy.Voice.NormalizationRule object. Accepts pipelined input of voice normalization rule objects.

Returns an object of type Microsoft.Rtc.Management.Voice.NormalizationRuleTestResult.
