Remove-CsPartnerApplication

Removes an existing partner application. A partner application is any application that Skype for Business Server can directly exchange security tokens with, without having to go through a third-party security token server. This cmdlet was introduced in Lync Server 2013.

Syntax

Remove-CsPartnerApplication
      [-Identity] <XdsGlobalRelativeIdentity>
      [-Confirm]
      [-Force]
      [-Tenant <Guid>]
      [-WhatIf]
      [<CommonParameters>]

Description

In Skype for Business Server, server-to-server authentication (for example, the authentication that enables Skype for Business Server and Exchange to share information) is carried out using the OAuth security protocol. This type of authentication typically requires three servers: the two servers that need to communicate with one another (Server A and B) and a third-party security token server. If Servers A and B need to communicate with one another, the two servers contact the token server (also known as an OAuth server) and obtain mutually-trusted security tokens that the two servers can exchange in order to prove their identities.

If you are using an on-premises version of Skype for Business Server and you need to communicate with another server product that fully supports the OAuth protocol (for example, Exchange or SharePoint) then you typically do not need to use a token server; that's because these server products are able to issue their own security tokens. However, you will need to configure the other server product (e.g., Exchange) as a partner application. (You will also need to configure Skype for Business Server as a partner application for the other server product.) In Skype for Business Server, partner applications are managed by using the CsPartnerApplication cmdlets.

Skype for Business Server Control Panel: The functions carried out by the Remove-CsPartnerApplication cmdlet are not available in the Skype for Business Server Control Panel.

Examples

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

Remove-CsPartnerApplication -Identity "MicrosoftExchange"

The command shown in Example 1 deletes the partner application with the Identity "MicrosoftExchange".

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

Get-CsPartnerApplication | Remove-CsPartnerApplication

In Example 2, all the partner applications configured for use in the organization are deleted. To do this, the command first uses the Get-CsPartnerApplication cmdlet in order to return a collection of all the partner applications. This collection is then piped to the Remove-CsPartnerApplication cmdlet, which deletes each application in the collection.

-------------------------- Example 3 --------------------------

Get-CsPartnerApplication | Where-Object {$_.ApplicationTrustLevel -ne "Full"} | Remove-CsPartnerApplication

In Example 3, all the partner applications where the trust level is set to anything other than Full are deleted. To carry out this task, the command first calls the Get-CsPartnerApplication cmdlet without any parameters in order to return a collection of all the partner applications configured for use in the organization. This collection is then piped to the Where-Object cmdlet, which selects only those applications where the ApplicationTrustLevel property is not equal to (-ne) "Full". The applications that meet that criterion are then piped to and removed by, the Remove-CsPartnerApplication cmdlet.
