Set-GlobalAddressList

This cmdlet is available in on-premises Exchange and in the cloud-based service. Some parameters and settings may be exclusive to one environment or the other. Use the Set-GlobalAddressList cmdlet to modify an existing global address list (GAL). By default in Exchange Online, the Address List role isn't assigned to any role groups. To use any cmdlets that require the Address List role, you need to add the role to a role group. For more information, see the "Add a role to a role group" section in the topic, Manage role groups. For information about the parameter sets in the Syntax section below, see Exchange cmdlet syntax (https://technet.microsoft.com/library/bb123552.aspx).

Description

The Conditional parameters that are used with the IncludedRecipients parameter are subject to the following limitations:

  • The EQV operator is used for every property value, as in "Department equals Sales". Wildcards and partial matches aren't supported.

  • The OR operator is always used for multiple values of the same property, as in "Department equals Sales OR Marketing".

  • The AND operator is always used for multiple properties, as in "Department equals Sales AND Company equals Contoso".

To create flexible filters that use any available recipient property and that aren't subject to these limitations, you can use the RecipientFilter parameter to create an OPath filter.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although this topic lists all parameters for the cmdlet, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To find the permissions required to run any cmdlet or parameter in your organization, see Find the permissions required to run any Exchange cmdlet (https://technet.microsoft.com/library/mt432940.aspx).

-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.

  • AllRecipients: This value can be used only by itself.

  • MailboxUsers

  • MailContacts

  • MailGroups

  • MailUsers

  • Resources: This value indicates room or equipment mailboxes.

You can specify multiple values separated by commas. When you use multiple values, the OR Boolean operator is applied.

-RecipientFilter

The RecipientFilter parameter specifies an OPath filter that's based on the value of any available recipient property. You can use any available Windows PowerShell operator, and wildcards and partial matches are supported. When you use this parameter, remember the following OPath filter rules:

  • Use braces { } around the whole OPath syntax string.

  • Include a hyphen before all operators.

  • In cloud-based environments, you can't use a wildcard as the first character. For example, Sales* is allowed, but *Sales isn't allowed.
