In Need of a Script

Does anyone have a Powershell script that will remove ExchangeOnline licenses from users who have not used their license in the last XX days? I have a lot of users who have not used the ExchangeOnline license from the lastloggedin report and need to release the licenses.

This could either read directly of the system of preferably off the lastloggedin report CSV

Want them to keep sharepoint, just want to remove Exchange

Thanks in Advance for help

The Inactivity reports arent that accurate, I wouldnt necessarily trust them. Also, removing their EO license will not free up anything, as you are playing for the full plan, this will only have effect if you have purchased the standalone EO plan, and not E1/E3/E5/etc.

Otherwise, it's relatively easy to do this, you can try something like:

$csv = Import-csv blabla.csv
$plan =New-MsolLicenseOptions -AccountSkuId tenant:ENTERPRISEPACK -DisabledPlans "EXCHANGE_S_ENTERPRISE"

$csv | % { Set-MsolUserLicense -UserPrincipalName $_.UserPrincipalName -LicenseOptions $plan }

Open in new window

where the CSV is expected to have a column named $_.UserPrincipalName to designate the user and you have replaced the SKU id/plan as necessary.

Hi Vasil, how are you?

Thanks for this, some licenses have, azure, office etc, posted an image. How can I remove all and just leave the sharepoint? Effectively disabling exchange, Azure, Office ProPlus etc.

Thanks Again

For example if I want to remove all these if they are there and ignore if they are not.

Just adjust the plan option accordingly:


Open in new window

and so on. A full list can be obtained via:

(Get-MsolAccountSku | ? {$_.AccountSkuId -eq "tenant:ENTERPRISEPACK"}).ServiceStatus

Open in new window

or here:

Again, you will not actually free any licenses by doing this.
