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 "Apps for Outlook" entry in the Recipients Permissions topic.


Parameter Required Type Description




The Identity parameter specifies the GUID of the app.




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.




This parameter is available only in on-premises Exchange 2013.

The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that writes this configuration change to Active Directory.




The Mailbox parameter specifies the identity of the mailbox or mail user. You can use the following values:

  • GUID

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • Domain\Account

  • User principal name (UPN)

  • Legacy Exchange DN

  • SMTP address

  • Alias

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




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.
