List out the role groups within PowerShell:

Get-RoleGroup

Open in new window


Find out which group you are in by querying the role group membership:

Get-RoleGroupMember "Organization Management"

Open in new window

When you run Get-RoleGroupMember this will list all members, and you should see yourself in the group if you are assigned.

Get-RoleGroupMember "Organization Management" | ? { $_.Name -eq "Insert Display Name here"}

that would give you what you are looking for. You can also search other RBAC groups (get-rolegroup) by replacing the "Organization Management" portion above.

Get-RoleGroupMember "Organization Management" | ? { $_.Name -eq "Andy"}

So this does two things:

- Pulls the users within the Role Group (RBAC group) "Organization Management" (which is like the Enterprise Admin group for Exchange, full rights to everything)
- the ? is the Where-Object statement, just abbreviated because I am lazy :) It says "Where-Object from Name is Andy". So it will display your name there if you are part of the group. If it returns nothing then you are not apart of that group.
