Report on Shared Calendar permissions

I am trying to figure out how can i make this powershell command also include the actual identity of the users calendar

(Get-Mailbox -ResultSize unlimited) | foreach {
      $alias = $_.alias;
      $User = $_.User
    $FolderName = $_.FolderName
    $AccessRights = $_.AccessRights
      Get-MailboxFolderPermission "$($alias):\calendar" | ? { $_.user -like "Default"} | select @{n="Alias";e={$alias}},@{n="User";e={$User}},@{n="FolderName";e={$FolderName}}@{n="AccessRights";Expression={[string]::join(', ', $_.AccessRights)}}
}

The powershell script does get all the needed values expect the actual users mailbox that am trying to see who has what access.

I should get an output as follows the actual Users mailbox (Alias), the FolderName and the access rights the user has for those folder names. I get everything expect Alias as an output.

Thanks

Alias isn't a variable that is returned by the get-mailboxfolderpermissions cmdlet. Your select is pulling data from that cmdlet only, so Alias won't be an object that is discovered by it, and as a result it won't output anything for Alias. You could replace alias with identity in your select and you'll get some identifying information, but it will probably not be what you want. The real solution would be to create a new PSObject and package variables into it. Like this:

(Get-Mailbox -ResultSize unlimited) | foreach {
      $alias = $_.alias;
      $User = $_.User
#create object
      $output = new-object -typename psobject
#add alias to new object
      $output | Add-Member –MemberType NoteProperty –Name Alias –Value $alias
#get permission info
      $perms = Get-MailboxFolderPermission $alias":\calendar" | ? { $_.user -like "Default"} | select  accessrights,foldername,user
#add permission info to object
      $output | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name User -value $perms.user
      $output | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name FolderName -value $perms.foldername
      $output | Add-Member -MemberType NoteProperty -Name AccessRights -value $perms.AccessRights
#output the data
      $output | fl}

replace the fl at the end with
export-csv c:\file.csv -append

Make sure c:\file.csv doesn't exist. If you put the export after fl it will break.
