Returns information about one or more voice policies configured for your organization.


Get-CsVoicePolicy [-Identity <XdsIdentity>] [-LocalStore <SwitchParameter>]
Get-CsVoicePolicy [-Filter <String>] [-LocalStore <SwitchParameter>]


Parameter Required Type Description




A unique identifier specifying the scope, and in some cases the name, of the policy. If this parameter is omitted, all voice policies for the organization are returned.




This parameter accepts a wildcard string and returns all voice policies with identities matching that string. For example, a Filter value of site:* will return all voice policies defined at the site level.




Retrieves the voice policy from the local replica of the Central Management store, rather than the Central Management store itself.

Detailed Description

This cmdlet retrieves voice policy information. Voice policies are used to manage such Enterprise Voice-related features as simultaneous ringing (the ability to have a second phone ring each time someone calls your office phone) and call forwarding. Use this cmdlet to retrieve the settings that enable and disable many of these features.

Who can run this cmdlet: By default, members of the following groups are authorized to run the Get-CsVoicePolicy cmdlet locally: RTCUniversalUserAdmins, RTCUniversalServerAdmins. To return a list of all the role-based access control (RBAC) roles this cmdlet has been assigned to (including any custom RBAC roles you have created yourself), run the following command from the Windows PowerShell prompt:

Get-CsAdminRole | Where-Object {$_.Cmdlets –match "Get-CsVoicePolicy"}

Input Types


Return Types
