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 Remove-ManagementRoleAssignment cmdlet to remove management role assignments. For information about the parameter sets in the Syntax section below, see Exchange cmdlet syntax (https://technet.microsoft.com/library/bb123552.aspx).

Syntax

      [-Identity] <RoleAssignmentIdParameter>

Description

When you remove a role assignment, the management role group, management role assignment, user, or universal security group (USG) that was assigned the associated role can no longer access the cmdlets or parameters made available by the role. For more information about management role assignments, see Understanding management role assignments (https://technet.microsoft.com/library/dd335131.aspx).

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).

Examples

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

Remove-ManagementRoleAssignment "Recipients_Seattle Recipient Management"

This example removes the Recipients_Seattle Recipient Management role assignment.

-------------------------- Example 2 --------------------------

Get-ManagementRoleAssignment Detroit* | Remove-ManagementRoleAssignment -WhatIf

This example retrieves a list of role assignments that begin with the string "Detroit" and attempts to remove them with the Remove-ManagementRoleAssignment cmdlet. Because the WhatIf switch is included with the Remove-ManagementRoleAssignment command, the command displays the changes that would have occurred but doesn't commit any changes.

After the list of role assignments to be removed is confirmed, remove the WhatIf switch and run the command again to remove the role assignments.

Required Parameters

-Identity

The Identity parameter specifies the name of the role assignment to remove. If the role assignment name contains spaces, enclose the name in quotation marks (").

Type:RoleAssignmentIdParameter
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2010, Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016, Exchange Online Protection

Optional 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.

Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2010, Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016, Exchange Online Protection
-DomainController

This parameter is available only in on-premises Exchange.

Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2010, Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016

Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2010, Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016, Exchange Online Protection
