View user PIN information in Skype for Business Server 2015

Summary: View user PIN information in Skype for Business Server 2015.

To join a dial-in conference as an authenticated user, a Skype for Business Server 2015 user with Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS) credentials requires a personal identification number (PIN). You can view a user's PIN information from Skype for Business Server Control Panel.

Note

You can view PIN status information such as whether the PIN has been set or when the PIN was last changed, but you cannot see the current PIN by looking at the PIN status. If a user has lost their PIN, you can reset it by following the procedures in Set a user's dial-in conferencing PIN in Skype for Business Server 2015

    • If you have a saved query, click the Open query icon, use the Open dialog box to retrieve the query (a .usf file), and then click Find.

  5. (Optional) Specify additional search criteria to narrow the results:

    Tip

    To add additional search clauses to your query, click Add Filter.

Viewing User PIN Information by Using Windows PowerShell cmdlets

You can view user PIN information by using the Get-CsClientPinInfo cmdlet. This cmdlet can be run either from the Skype for Business Server Management Shell or from a remote session of Windows PowerShell. For details about using remote Windows PowerShell to connect to Skype for Business Server, see the blog article "Quick Start: Managing Microsoft Lync Server 2010 Using Remote PowerShell". The process is the same in Skype for Business Server.
