This example disables the call answering rule MyUMCallAnsweringRule in the mailbox for Tony Smith.

Disable -UMCallAnsweringRule -Identity MyUMCallAnsweringRule -Mailbox tonysmith

This example uses the WhatIf switch to test whether the call answering rule MyUMCallAnsweringRule in the mailbox for Tony Smith is ready to be disabled and if there are any errors within the command.

Disable -UMCallAnsweringRule -Identity MyUMCallAnsweringRule -Mailbox tonysmith -WhatIf

This example disables the call answering rule MyUMCallAnsweringRule in the mailbox for Tony Smith and prompts the user logged on to confirm that they're disabling the call answering rule.

Disable-UMCallAnsweringRule -Identity MyUMCallAnsweringRule -Mailbox tonysmith -Confirm

The Disable-UMCallAnsweringRule cmdlet disables the call answering rule by modifying its status variable. Disabling a call answering rule prevents it from being retrieved and processed when an incoming call is received. With this cmdlet, you can disable an existing call answering rule that's enabled.

When the call answering rule is created, you should disable the call answering rule when you're setting up conditions and actions. This prevents the call answering rule from being processed when an incoming call is received until you've correctly configured the call answering rule. After this task is completed, the cmdlet sets the parameters and the values specified.

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 "UM call answering rules entry in the Unified Messaging permissions topic.
