Get-TransportRuleAction [-Name <String>]


Parameter Required Type Description




This parameter specifies the action to display. See Transport Rule Actions for a list of values that can be used with this parameter on the server role that you are administering.

Detailed Description

The Get-TransportRuleAction cmdlet displays a list of available actions that an e-mail administrator can use in transport rules that are part of the Transport Rules agent in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007.

The transport rule actions that are available for use on a Hub Transport server and an Edge Transport server are slightly different. For a list of transport rule actions included with the Get-TransportRuleAction cmdlet, and to determine which actions are available on each of the server roles, see Transport Rule Actions.

To run the Get-TransportRuleAction cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange View-Only Administrator role

To run the Get-TransportRuleAction cmdlet on a computer that has the Edge Transport server role installed, you must log on by using an account that is a member of the local Administrators group on that computer.

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.
