Delete an existing archiving policy in Skype for Business Server 2015

Summary: Learn how to delete an archiving policy for Skype for Business Server 2015.

You can delete a user policy or site policy, but not the global policy. If you delete the global policy, Skype for Business Server automatically resets the policy to the default values.

Delete a policy by using the Control Panel

  1. From a user account that is assigned to the CsArchivingAdministrator or CsAdministrator role, log on to any computer in your internal deployment.

  2. Open a browser window, and then enter the Admin URL to open the Skype for Business Server Control Panel.

  3. In the left navigation bar, click Monitoring and Archiving, and then click Archiving Policy.

  4. In the list of archiving policies, click the user or site policy that you want to delete, click Edit, and then click Delete.

  5. Click Commit.

Delete a policy by using Windows PowerShell

You can also delete archiving policies by using the Remove-CsArchivingPolicy cmdlet.

For example, the following command deletes the policy with the Identity site:Redmond. When a policy configured at the site level is deleted, users previously managed by the site policy will automatically be governed by the global archiving policy instead:

Remove-CsArchivingPolicy -Identity site:Redmond

This command removes all the archiving policies applied to the per-user level:

Get-CsArchivingPolicy -Filter "tag:*" | Remove-CsArchivingPolicy

This command removes all the archiving policies where internal archiving has been disabled:

Get-CsArchivingPolicy | Where-Object {$_.ArchiveInternal -eq $False} | Remove-CsArchivingPolicy
