Documenting with PowerShell: Documenting Office365 mailbox permissions

I like being able to report to our clients exactly what the permissions on mailboxes are. The only issue with reporting via the Office 365 admin portal is that we don’t get a history. I’ve decided to make sure that I can do this by documenting the permissions daily.

To do this, I have two versions of the script; one for IT-Glue and one for general HTML file usage. Both scripts connect to the Office365 Exchange PowerShell using the Secure App Model. For more information you can check this blog post.

IT-Glue version

The IT-Glue version gets all contacts in your IT-Glue environment, compares these to the domains found in each of your partner tenants and documents the permissions for the right tenant into the correct IT-Glue client. The script creates a Flexible Asset for you if it does not yet exist.

$TenantID              = 'YourTenantID'

    Hi Kelvin. Great Job here!

    Do you have a guide on how to get these variables, or where do I get them from?

    $ApplicationId = ‘Application ID’
    $ApplicationSecret = ‘Application Secret’ | Convertto-SecureString -AsPlainText -Force
    $RefreshToken = ‘YourRefreshTokens’
    $ExchangeRefreshToken = ‘YourExchangeRefresherToken’
    $upn = ‘UPN-That-Generated-Tokens’

    Thanks

    I’m getting weird results on the IT Glue script. Getting this for every account *Blanked out details.

    Error on proxy command ‘Get-MailboxPermission -Identity:’CN=******,OU=*********.onmicrosoft.com,OU=Microsoft Exchange Hosted

    Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again…

    It does sync to IT Glue however the tabling is wonky as the HTML tags are showing and some formatting is out.
    Also it’s just filling every Org in IT Glue with the first Office 365 tenant for each one.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks

      Seems like my WordPress plugin is still messing up some code – I’ve fixed it.

      The get-mailbox permission is due to shared mailboxes not having all values avaialble. I’ll be solving that in a new version.
