Skype for Business Server 2015

Topic Last Modified: 2015-08-17

Summary: View a user's PIN policy information for Skype for Business Server 2015.

You can use the PIN Policy tab to view personal identification number (PIN) authentication of users who are connecting to Skype for Business with IP Phones. To use PIN authentication, make sure that Enable PIN Authentication is selected in Web Service settings.

Follow these steps to modify a user-level or a site-level 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, click a policy, click Edit, and then click Show details.

You can also view PIN policies by using Windows PowerShell and the Get-CsPinPolicy cmdlet. This cmdlet can be run 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.

  • To view information about all your PIN policies, type the following command in the Skype for Business Server Management Shell and then press ENTER:


    That will return information similar to this:

    Identity             : Global
    Description          :
    MinPasswordLength    : 5
    PINHistoryCount      : 0
    AllowCommonPatterns  : False
    PINLifetime          : 0
    MaximumLogonAttempts :
