Applies to: Exchange Online, Exchange Server 2016

This cmdlet is available in on-premises Exchange Server 2016 and in the cloud-based service. Some parameters and settings may be exclusive to one environment or the other.

Use the Get-MailboxAuditBypassAssociation cmdlet to retrieve user or computer accounts configured to bypass mailbox audit logging.

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

Get-MailboxAuditBypassAssociation [-Identity <MailboxAuditBypassAssociationIdParameter>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-ResultSize <Unlimited>]

This example retrieves all user or computer accounts configured for mailbox audit logging bypass.

Get-MailboxAuditBypassAssociation -ResultSize unlimited

This example retrieves the mailbox audit bypass association for the Svc-MyApplication account.

Get-MailboxAuditBypassAssociation -Identity "Svc-MyApplication"

When you configure a user or computer account to bypass mailbox audit logging, access or actions taken by the user or computer account to any mailbox isn't logged. By bypassing trusted user or computer accounts that need to access mailboxes frequently, you can reduce the noise in mailbox audit logs.

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 "Mailbox audit logging" entry in the Messaging policy and compliance permissions topic.
