Description

Office 365 groups are group objects that are available across Office 365 services.

Soft-deleted Office 365 groups are groups that have been deleted, but can be restored within 30 days of being deleted. All of the group contents can be restored within this period. After 30 days, soft-deleted Office 365 groups are marked for permanent deletion and can't be restored.

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 --------------------------

Undo-SoftDeletedUnifiedGroup -SoftDeletedObject "Marketing Department"

This example restores the soft-deleted Office 365 Group named Marketing Department.

Required Parameters

-SoftDeletedObject

The SoftDeletedObject parameter specifies the soft-deleted Office 365 Group that you want to restore. You can use any value that uniquely identifies the Office 365 Group.

For example:

  • Name

  • Display name

  • Alias

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • Canonical DN

  • <domain name>\<account name>

  • Email address

  • GUID

  • LegacyExchangeDN

  • SamAccountName

  • User ID or user principal name (UPN)

Note: You might need to use the DistinguishedName or ExchangeGuid property to identify the soft-deleted Office 365 Group, because it's possible for an active Office 365 Group and a soft-deleted Office 365 Group to have the same primary SMTP address.

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.
