Use the Get-TransportRulePredicate cmdlet to retrieve a list of all available rule predicates that can be used with the Transport Rules agent on a Hub Transport server or an Edge Transport server.


Get-TransportRulePredicate [-Name <String>]

Detailed Description

The Get-TransportRulePredicate cmdlet displays a list of available rule predicates that you can use in transport rules that are part of the Transport Rules agent in Microsoft Exchange Server 2010.

The predicates available for use on a Hub Transport server and an Edge Transport server are slightly different. For a list of transport rule predicates included with the Get-TransportRulePredicate cmdlet, and to determine which predicates are available on each server role, see Transport Rule Predicates.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although all parameters for this cmdlet are listed in this topic, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To see what permissions you need, see the "Transport rules" entry in the Messaging Policy and Compliance Permissions topic.

The Name parameter specifies the predicate to display. For a list of values that can be used with this parameter on the server role that you're administering, see Transport Rule Predicates.
