Topic Last Modified: 2015-08-17

Summary: Delete a user's dial-in conferencing PIN for Skype for Business Server 2015.

Follow these steps to delete a personal identification number (PIN) policy.

You cannot delete the global PIN policy.

  1. From a user account that is a member of the RTCUniversalServerAdmins group (or has equivalent user rights), or assigned to the CsServerAdministrator or CsAdministrator role, log on to any computer that is in the network in which you deployed Skype for Business Server 2015.

  2. Open a browser window, and then enter the Admin URL to open the Skype for Business Server Control Panel. For details about the different methods you can use to start Skype for Business Server Control Panel, see Open Skype for Business Server 2015 administrative tools.

  3. In the left navigation bar, click Security and then click PIN Policy.

  4. On the PIN Policy page, and in the search field, type all or part of the name of the policy you want to delete.

  5. In the list of policies, click the policy that you want, click Edit, and then click Delete.

  6. Click OK.

You can delete PIN policies by using Windows PowerShell and the Remove-CsPinPolicy cmdlet. You can run this cmdlet either from the Skype for Business Server Management Shell or from a remote session of Windows PowerShell. For details about using remote Windows PowerShell to connect to Skype for Business Server, see the blog article "Quick Start: Managing Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Using Remote PowerShell". The process is the same in Skype for Business Server.

  • This command removes the PIN policy with the Identity RedmondPinPolicy:

    Remove-CsPinPolicy -Identity "RedmondPinPolicy"

  • This command removes all the PIN policies configured at the site scope:

    Get-CsPinPolicy -Filter "site:*" | Remove-CsPinPolicy

  • And this one removes all the PIN policies that allow the use of common patterns:G

    et-CsPinPolicy | Where-Object {$_.AllowCommonPatterns -eq $True} | Remove-CsPinPolicy

For more information, see the help topic for the Remove-CsPinPolicy cmdlet.
