Applies to: Exchange Server 2016

This cmdlet is available only in on-premises Exchange Server 2016.

Use the Get-MailboxExportRequestStatistics cmdlet to view detailed information about export requests.

This cmdlet is available only in the Mailbox Import Export role, and by default, that role isn't assigned to a role group. To use this cmdlet, you need to add the Mailbox Import Export role to a role group (for example, to the Organization Management role group). For more information, see the "Add a role to a role group" section in Manage role groups.

For information about the parameter sets in the Syntax section below, see Syntax.

Get-MailboxExportRequestStatistics -Identity <MailboxExportRequestIdParameter> <COMMON PARAMETERS>
Get-MailboxExportRequestStatistics -RequestQueue <DatabaseIdParameter> [-RequestGuid <Guid>] <COMMON PARAMETERS>
COMMON PARAMETERS: [-Diagnostic <SwitchParameter>] [-DiagnosticArgument <String>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-IncludeReport <SwitchParameter>]

This example returns the default statistics for the second export request for Tony Smith. The type of information returned by default includes name, mailbox, and status.

Get-MailboxExportRequestStatistics -Identity Tony\MailboxExport1

This example returns statistics for Tony Smith's mailbox and exports the report to a .csv file.

Get-MailboxExportRequestStatistics -Identity Tony\MailboxExport | Export-CSV \\SERVER01\ExportRequest_Reports\Tony_Exportstats.csv

This example returns additional information about the export request for Tony Smith's mailbox by using the IncludeReport parameter and by pipelining the results to the Format-List command. (The export request was created using the New-MailboxExportRequest.)

Get-MailboxExportRequestStatistics -Identity Tony\LegalHold -IncludeReport | Format-List

This example returns default statistics for an export request being processed by the instance of MRS running on the server CAS01. This command only returns information for export requests currently being processed by an instance of MRS. If the request is already finished, it won't be returned.

Get-MailboxExportRequestStatistics -RequestQueue MailboxDatabase01

This example returns additional information for all the export requests that have a status of Failed by using the IncludeReport parameter, and then saves the information to the text file AllExportReports.txt.

Get-MailboxExportRequest -Status Failed | Get-MailboxExportRequestStatistics -IncludeReport | Format-List > AllExportReports.txt

You can pipeline the Get-MailboxExportRequestStatistics cmdlet from the Get-MailboxExportRequest cmdlet.

The RequestQueue parameter syntax set is for debugging purposes only.

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 "Import Export" entry in the Recipients Permissions topic.


Parameter Required Type Description




The Identity parameter specifies the identity of the export request. By default, export requests are named <alias>\MailboxExportX (where X = 0-9). If you specified a name for the export request when it was created by using the New-MailboxExportRequest cmdlet, use the following syntax: <alias>\<name>.

This parameter can't be used with the RequestGuid, or RequestQueue parameters.




The RequestQueue parameter identifies the request based on the mailbox database where the request is being run. You can use any value that uniquely identifies the database. For example:

  • Database GUID

  • Database name

You can't use this parameter with the Identity parameter.




The Diagnostic switch specifies whether to return extremely detailed information in the results. Typically, you use this switch only at the request of Microsoft Customer Service and Support to troubleshoot problems.




The DiagnosticArgument parameter modifies the results that are returned by using the Diagnostic switch. Typically, you use the Diagnostic switch and the DiagnosticArgument parameter only at the request of Microsoft Customer Service and Support to troubleshoot problems.




The DomainController parameter specifies the domain controller that's used by this cmdlet to read data from or write data to Active Directory. You identify the domain controller by its fully qualified domain name (FQDN). For example,




The IncludeReport switch specifies whether to return additional details, which can be used for troubleshooting.




The RequestGuid parameter specifies the unique identifier for the export request. To find the export request GUID, use the Get-MailboxExportRequest cmdlet. If you specify the RequestGuid parameter, you must also specify the RequestQueue parameter. You can't use this parameter in conjunction with the Identity parameter.
