PowerShell : Calendar in multiple language : how handle this easily and with efficiency ?

I'm working in Belgium. This is a small country. However, we have here 4 potentials different language and the users have therefore the possibility to have Calendar (EN), Kalendar(Dutch), Calendrier (French) and also the german version.I  would like to avoid to try each time each language for every mailbox calendar...

this is the current situation:
(French) Add-MailboxFolderPermission {$strEmail}:\Calendrier -User $strUserNPlusOne -AccessRights Reviewer
(English) Add-MailboxFolderPermission {$strEmail}:\Calendar   -User $strUserNPlusOne -AccessRights Reviewer
(Dutch) Add-MailboxFolderPermission {$strEmail}:\Kalendar   -User $strUserNPlusOne -AccessRights Reviewer
(German) yes also... :(

What's your proposed solution to handle this easily???

Try this:

[string]$cal = Get-MailboxFolderStatistics <mailbox adding perms to> | Where-Object {$_.foldertype -eq 'Calendar'}
Add-MailboxFolderPermission $cal -User $strUserNPlusOne -AccessRights Reviewer

Open in new window

Hi  Jason Crawford ,

unfortunately the second part of the command does not work. (syntax issue)
I have tried this
            $cal = Get-MailboxFolderStatistics $strEmail | Where-Object {$_.foldertype -eq 'Calendar'}
            $strCalName = $cal.Name
            Add-MailboxFolderPermission {$strEmail}:\$strCalName -User $strUserNPlusOne -AccessRights Reviewer

but does not work either (also syntax issue)

any help ? tks.

I have no idea what happened there man sorry about that.  Try this:

$user = 'jdoe@domain.com'
$path = (Get-MailboxFolderStatistics $user| Where-Object {$_.foldertype -eq 'Calendar'}).folderpath
$name = $user + ':' + $path.Replace('/','\')
Add-MailboxFolderPermission $name -User $strUserNPlusOne -AccessRights Reviewer

Open in new window

Replace the value of the $user variable with the actual mailbox name.  If you need this run as a batch just let me know how you want to gather the list of mailboxes to feed the code.
