Use the Restore-DetailsTemplate cmdlet to restore the specified template to its default state.

Restore-DetailsTemplate -Identity <DetailsTemplateIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Parameter Required Type Description




The Identity parameter specifies the GUID or specifies the details template type and language separated by a slash, for example, en-us\user. Details template types include:

  • User
  • Group
  • PublicFolder
  • SearchDialog
  • MailboxAgent
  • Contact




The Confirm switch can be used to suppress the confirmation prompt that appears by default when this cmdlet is run. To suppress the confirmation prompt, use the syntax -Confirm:$False. You must include a colon ( : ) in the syntax.




The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that writes this configuration change to Active Directory.




The WhatIf switch instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf switch, you can view what changes would occur without having to apply any of those changes. You don't have to specify a value with the WhatIf switch.

Details templates can't be created or deleted, but this task restores the specified template to its default state. All user changes are lost.

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 "Details templates" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.
