This example uses the WhatIf switch to test whether the call answering rule MyUMCallAnsweringRule in the mailbox for Tony Smith is ready to be disabled and if there are any errors within the command.

Disable -UMCallAnsweringRule -Identity MyUMCallAnsweringRule -Mailbox tonysmith -WhatIf

This example disables the call answering rule MyUMCallAnsweringRule in the mailbox for Tony Smith and prompts the user logged on to confirm that they're disabling the call answering rule.

Disable-UMCallAnsweringRule -Identity MyUMCallAnsweringRule -Mailbox tonysmith -Confirm

The Disable-UMCallAnsweringRule cmdlet disables the call answering rule by modifying its status variable. Disabling a call answering rule prevents it from being retrieved and processed when an incoming call is received. With this cmdlet, you can disable an existing call answering rule that's enabled.

When the call answering rule is created, you should disable the call answering rule when you're setting up conditions and actions. This prevents the call answering rule from being processed when an incoming call is received until you've correctly configured the call answering rule. After this task is completed, the cmdlet sets the parameters and the values specified.

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 "UM call answering rules entry in the Unified Messaging permissions topic.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.UMCallAnsweringRuleIdParameter

The Identity parameter specifies the UM call answering rule in a UM-enabled mailbox that's to be disabled.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Confirm switch specifies whether to show or hide the confirmation prompt. How this switch affects the cmdlet depends on if the cmdlet requires confirmation before proceeding.

  • Destructive cmdlets (for example, Remove-* cmdlets) have a built-in pause that forces you to acknowledge the command before proceeding. For these cmdlets, you can skip the confirmation prompt by using this exact syntax: -Confirm:$false.

  • Most other cmdlets (for example, New-* and Set-* cmdlets) don't have a built-in pause. For these cmdlets, specifying the Confirm switch without a value introduces a pause that forces you acknowledge the command before proceeding.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

This parameter is available only in on-premises Exchange 2016.

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, dc01.contoso.com.

Mailbox

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.MailboxIdParameter

The Mailbox parameter specifies the UM-enabled mailbox that contains the UM call answering rule. The default is the user's mailbox running the cmdlet.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The WhatIf switch simulates the actions of the command. You can use this switch to view the changes that would occur without actually applying those changes. You don't need to specify a value with this switch.
