All Lync 2010 Cmdlets and the Default RBAC Roles That Can Use Them
A customer asked for some documentation as to the various Lync cmdlets, what they do, and who can do them. Knowing that there are hundreds of cmdlets for Lync, this was a daunting task. Thank goodness for PowerShell, copy & paste, and some macros!
I used the script by Cezar Ungureanasu at http://blogs.technet.com/b/csps/archive/2010/06/10/scriptlistrbacrolesandcmdlets.aspx which shows you how to find out what cmdlets are available to specific default RBAC roles. I ran that in a virgin environment and captured the data to a .tsvÂ file. I found a page from Microsoft at http://blogs.technet.com/b/csps/archive/2010/07/16/refallcmdlets.aspx which includes all 546 of the Lync cmdlets, a link to their associated Technet page, and a brief description. I merged that data into the .tsv file, and then added a formula that can be used to confirm what RBAC roles each cmdlet can be used by (in case an environment has been changed from the default settings). All of that was rolled into an Excel spreadsheet that can now be downloaded at the link below. This was perfect for the customer.
Recent updates include cmdlets added in Cumulative Update 4, as well as a new column indicating when the cmdlets were added to Lync. I’ll update that as I get more information.
Let me know if there are any issues, or if you can think of something I should add.
