This is an old version of the topic. To see the current version, change the (v=exchg.150) value in the URL to (v=exchg.160).

This cmdlet is available only in the cloud-based service.

Use the Get-ConnectSubscription cmdlet to view information about the people subscriptions that have been set up between the users in your organization and a supported networking service (for example, Facebook and LinkedIn).

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

Get-ConnectSubscription [-Identity <AggregationSubscriptionIdParameter>] [-IncludeReport <SwitchParameter>] [-Mailbox <MailboxIdParameter>] [-AggregationType <Aggregation | Mirrored | Migration | PeopleConnection | All>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-ResultSize <Unlimited>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This example shows detailed information for all the contact subscriptions that are configured in the mailbox of the user Kim Akers.

Get-ConnectSubscription -Mailbox "Kim Akers" | Format-List

This example returns additional information about the contact subscriptions that are configured in the mailbox of the user Kim Akers.

Get-ConnectSubscription -Mailbox "Kim Akers" -IncludeReport | Export-CSV C:\KimAkersConnectReport

Users can set up people subscriptions between supported networking services and their cloud-based mailbox. The Exchange 2013 release only supports LinkedIn people connections. The Get-ConnectSubscription cmdlet returns the list of connections that have been set up in your organization. It can also return additional information such as the current connection status of each connection and the time of the most recent successful synchronization.

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 "Subscriptions" entry in the Feature permissions in Exchange Online topic.


Parameter Required Type Description




The AggregationType parameter filters the results by type. The acceptable values for this parameter are:

  • All

  • Aggregation

  • Migration

  • Mirrored

  • PeopleConnection




The Confirm switch causes the command to pause processing and requires you to acknowledge what the command will do before processing continues. You don't have to specify a value with the Confirm switch.




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




The Identity parameter specifies a unique value that identifies a connection between a cloud-based mailbox and a contact subscription. This value is generated by the provider after a successful connection is made.




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




The Mailbox parameter specifies the mailbox.

This parameter accepts the following values:

  • Alias

    Example: JPhillips

  • Canonical DN

    Example: Atlanta.Corp.Contoso.Com/Users/JPhillips

  • Display Name

    Example: Jeff Phillips

  • Distinguished Name (DN)

    Example: CN=JPhillips,CN=Users,DC=Atlanta,DC=Corp,DC=contoso,DC=com

  • Domain\Account

    Example: Atlanta\JPhillips

  • GUID

    Example: Jeff.Phillips@contoso.com

  • User Principal Name

The ResultSize parameter specifies the maximum number of results to return. If you want to return all recipients that match the filter, use unlimited for the value of this parameter. The default value is 1000.




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.
