Description

An eDiscovery Administrator is member of the eDiscovery Manager role group who can also view and access all eDiscovery cases in your organization.

To make a user an eDiscovery Administrator, the user must be assigned the Case Management role. By default, this role is assigned to the Organization Management and eDiscovery Manager role groups.

You need to be assigned permissions in the Office 365 Security & Compliance Center before you can use this cmdlet. For more information, see Permissions in Office 365 Security & Compliance Center (https://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=511920).

Examples

-------------------------- Example 1 --------------------------

Update-eDiscoveryCaseAdmin -Users laura@contoso.com,julia@contoso.com

This example replaces the existing eDiscovery Administrators with new users.

Parameters

-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.
