Optional Parameters

-AggregationType

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

  • All

  • Aggregation

  • Migration

  • Mirrored

  • PeopleConnection

Type:Aggregation | Mirrored | Migration | PeopleConnection | All
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Online
-Confirm

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.

The Identity parameter specifies the Hotmail subscription. You can identify the subscription by using one of the following methods:

  • Specify the globally unique identifier of the subscription, which is its canonical name (CN).

  • Use the Mailbox parameter to specify the mailbox that contains the subscription, and then specify the name of the subscription.

You can find the identifying values for a Hotmail subscription, such as Identity and Name, by running this command: Get-HotmailSubscription -Mailbox <mailbox>.
