User permissions
Changing user permissions is a very useful Windows PowerShell process to use in both
your test and production deployments. In our test environment, the tenant is different
from the production tenant. For this exercise, we will use our test tenant, which is called
Contosoitness.
To grant permissions, follow these steps:
1. Start the ISE and establish a PSSession if you do not already have one.
2. Enter the following cmdlet to view mailboxes and identify the users you want to
provide permissions to:
Get-Mailbox
3. For this exercise, we will grant user Julian full access to user Anthony’s mailbox. We
accomplish this by entering the following command. The result of this command is
shown in Figure 9-26:
Add-MailboxPermission -Identity julian@Contosofitness.onmicrosoft.com -User
Anthony@ContosoFitness.onMicrosoft.com -AccessRights FullAccess -Inheri-
tanceType All
Important
Be careful when resetting the administrator password because it could affect your
access to the tenant.
