Using PowerShell on Linux to Check Office 365 Mailbox Permissions

In a previous post I installed PowerShell on my Arch Linux based system. Here I use it to check and amend Office 365 mailbox permissions.

[andy@home-pc ~]$ pwsh

PS /home/andy> $ExchangeSession = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri "" -Credential $credential -Authentication "Basic" -AllowRedirection
PS /home/andy> 
PS /home/andy> Import-PSSession $ExchangeSession

Calendar             everyone             {Reviewer}                     

PS /home/andy>

If you needed to give everyone Reviewer access, you would issue something like the below:

PS /home/andy> Get-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity [email protected]:\Calendar -User everyone -AccessRights Reviewer

To disconnect, issue:

PS /home/andy> Get-PSSession | Remove-PSSession
