How can we improve the tenant admin features O365?

View Current Automapping setting

Currently there is no way to view whether Automapping of a mailbox is enabled or disabled in office 365. It would be nice to be able to view this value in either powershell or the GUI.

Additionally it would be nice to be able to turn automapping on or off via the EMC instead of only powershell.

        While I completely agree that O365 Engineers need to learn PS, this is a task I want my helpdesk to handle. Based on skill level and turn-over, the current methods are too complicated to expect my support desk to manage. That means I have very highly paid engineers checking and fixing permissions for mailboxes. Please provide this capability or let Premier handle it.

        If you're in a hybrid configuration with Azure AD Connect you can do this in powershell. Hope this helps someone.

        Sorry it's not commented or pretty, busy days this month.

        Import-Module ActiveDirectory

        $automapped = Get-ADUser -Filter * -Properties msexchdelegatelistlink, UserPrincipalName |
        where {$_.msexchdelegatelistlink -ne ""} |
        Select-Object name, @{N="msExchDelegateListLink"; e={$_.msexchdelegatelistlink}}, UserPrincipalName
        $targets= @()

        foreach($User in $automapped)

        {
        $Delegates = $user | select @{ N="Name"; e= {$_ |select -ExpandProperty MsExchDelegateListLink}}
        $delegatesExp = $Delegates | Select -ExpandProperty Name
        foreach($delegate in $delegatesExp)

        {
        If ($delegate -notlike "CN=Administrator*")

        {
        $DelegatedUserUPN = Get-ADUser -Identity ($Delegate.tostring()) -Properties Userprincipalname | Select UserPrincipalName
        $DelegatedName = ($Delegate.split(",")[0]).replace("CN=","")
        $target = New-Object psobject
        $target | Add-Member -type noteproperty -Name "User Name" -Value ($user.Name) -force
        $target | Add-Member -type noteproperty -Name "DelegatedUser" -Value ($DelegatedName) -force
        $target | Add-Member -type noteproperty -Name "UserPrincipalName" -Value ($user.UserPrincipalName) -force
        $target | Add-Member -type noteproperty -Name "DelegatedUser" -Value ($DelegatedName) -force
        $target | Add-Member -type noteproperty -Name "DelegatedUserUPN" -Value ($DelegatedUserUPN.UserPrincipalName) -force
        $targets += $target

        }
        }

        }

        $targets | Export-Csv C:\SCRIPTS\AutoMapped_Mailboxes_With_Delegates.csv -NoTypeInformation

        How the **** is this feature STILL not available?? Can somebody PLEASE get on this?

      • Michael Burke commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Admin's should expect to have to use PowerShell to properly admin the tenant. Let's not get lazy. Learn PS!

      • Jason commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        So many years for exchange and online, still can't check this.
        It should not be so hard to add this in PS

        I agree def needed.

        We have a staff with 15+ shared mailboxes they cannot even open MS Outlook without it having issues from Crashing Outlook, Out-of-Memory Errors or not allowed to send/receive emails.

        They advised disabling "MAPI" under mail features which would affect everyone from not seeing the mailbox, using distribution groups or powershell feature.

        In a way I am amazed MS Outlook never fixed have multiple shared mailboxes open as this bug has been around since Outlook 2007

        (Advised by Microsoft too many connections)

        I absolutely agree on this. At this moment it is impossible to know if automapping is true or false. Not even with powershell. We need to check now and then the status on a mailbox.

      • Alxeander Sentyurin commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Really annoyng dumb remove-add permission procedure just for check automapping. It would be nice to be able to view this value in either powershell.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        I agree. Being able to view this on a per shared mailbox basis would be very essential to us.

      • Edwin Lloyd-Jones commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please add this feature the inability to confirm if the setting is there when users report issues with auto-mapping is a real pain. All we can do is re-run the command and see if it helps.

      • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Please expose these attributes in the Exchange Management Console and allow their management there. For me, because I rarely have to use it and thus am not very familiar with it, PS is a real pain to use, especially if I just want to make one tiny change like this to a single user account. As it is, when I set up a new user I have to then start a PS session, figure out the syntax of the commands, and run one or more scripts to get the job done. It should be a simple checkbox in the console: Automapping for this user ON/Off. Status would show in the console, and life would be easy. Thanks.

        On premise you can check the back links on a user account, we moved to group membership only having full access to guarantee no automapping.

      • Phil Shand commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Automapping settings have really caused a lot of issues with shared mailboxes. Not being able to check this setting when your dealing with hundreds of users when dealing with important company shared office365 mailboxes such as payroll and accountspayable is becoming an essential value to know

      • JH commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

        Would certainly be helpful to view the state of AutoMapping per mailbox. I can understand it might not be worth the effort to extend it to the Web UI but it should be available via PS!
