Server Health and Performance Permissions

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Online

Topic Last Modified: 2012-07-19

The permissions required to perform tasks to configure various components of Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 depend on the procedure being performed or the cmdlet you want to run. See each of the sections in this topic for more information about their respective features.

To find out what permissions you need to perform the procedure or run the cmdlet, do the following:

  1. In the table below, find the feature that is most related to the procedure you want to perform or the cmdlet you want to run.
  2. Next, look at the permissions required for the feature. You must be assigned one of those role groups, an equivalent custom role group, or an equivalent management role. You can also click on a role group to see its management roles. If a feature lists more than one role group, you only need to be assigned one of the role groups to use the feature. For more information about role groups and management roles, see Understanding Role Based Access Control.
  3. Now, run the Get-ManagementRoleAssignment cmdlet to look at the role groups or management roles assigned to you to see if you have the permissions that are necessary to manage the feature.
    noteNote:
    You must be assigned the Role Management management role to run the Get-ManagementRoleAssignment cmdlet. If you don't have permissions to run the Get-ManagementRoleAssignment cmdlet, ask your Exchange administrator to retrieve the role groups or management roles assigned to you.

If you want to delegate the ability to manage a feature to another user, see Delegate Role Assignments.

noteNote:
Some features may require that you have local administrator permissions on the server you want to manage. To manage these features, you must be a member of the Local Administrators group on that server.
