Enable-OrganizationCustomization

In the Microsoft datacenters, certain objects are consolidated to save space. When you try to use Windows PowerShell to modify one of these objects for the first time, you may encounter an error message that tells you to run the Enable-OrganizationCustomization cmdlet.

Here are some examples of when you might see this:

  • Creating a new role group or creating a new management role assignment.

  • Creating a new role assignment policy or modifying a built-in role assignment policy.

  • Creating a new Outlook Web App mailbox policy or modifying a built-in Outlook Web App mailbox policy.

  • Creating a new sharing policy or modifying a built-in sharing policy.

  • Creating a new retention policy or modifying a built-in retention policy.

Note that you are only required to run the Enable-OrganizationCustomization cmdlet once in your Exchange Online organization. If you attempt to run the cmdlet again, you'll get an error.

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.
