Use the Get-PublicFolderClientPermission cmdlet to retrieve the user permissions for a public folder.

Get-PublicFolderClientPermission -Identity <PublicFolderIdParameter> [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Server <ServerIdParameter>] [-User <PublicFolderUserIdParameter>]

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 "Public folder client permissions" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.


Parameter Required Type Description




The Identity parameter specifies the GUID or public folder name that represents a specific public folder. You can also include the path using the format TopLevelPublicFolder\PublicFolder.

You can omit the parameter label so that only the public folder name or GUID is supplied.




The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that retrieves data from Active Directory.




The Server parameter specifies the server on which to perform the selected operations.




The User parameter specifies the user principal name (UPN), domain\user, or alias of a specific user for whom you want to view the permissions on the public folder.
