A parameter cannot be found that matches parameter name 'InactiveMailboxOnly'

Copper Contributor

The argument cannot be found after ExchangeOnlineManagement module is updated to 3.3.0

The same behavior after the module is uninstalled/installed.

I'm not seeing that, myself:




If you run the following command, do you see "-InactiveMailboxOnly" listed as a parameter?


Get-Command -Module tmpexo* -Name Get-Mailbox -Syntax;






I connected using Connect-ExchangeOnline in PowerShell 5 and 7 using module version 3.3.0, with no issues. It returned nothing, which is correct in my test tenant. (Get-Mailbox returns my mailboxes)

Does Get-EXOMailbox -InactiveMailboxOnly work? (Same but new version cmdlet)

As others have mentioned, the parameter is available and working fine. Most likely the user you are connecting with does not have the necessary permissions to use said parameter. To find out which role(s) include a given cmdlet/parameter, you can use the following:

# Get-ManagementRole -Cmdlet Get-Mailbox -CmdletParameters InactiveMailboxOnly

Name RoleType
---- --------
Mail Recipient Creation MailRecipientCreation
Mail Recipients MailRecipients
Compliance Admin ComplianceAdmin
Mailbox Search MailboxSearch
View-Only Recipients ViewOnlyRecipients

There you go - I learnt something new.


I'd only been aware that RBAC impacted which commandlets were exposed, not that it extended down into to the parameters layer.
