Description

The Test-PswaAuthorizationRule cmdlet verifies whether a rule exists for a specified user, computer, or endpoint. This cmdlet can also be used to test authorization rules to validate that a particular user, computer or endpoint access request is authorized.

By default, this cmdlet evaluates all rules in the authorization file. However, you can specify a subset of rules to test.

You can use this cmdlet to help troubleshoot authentication failures.

The parameters for this cmdlet correspond to fields on the Windows PowerShell® Web Access sign-on page.

EXAMPLE 2
