Returns values for the hybrid configuration settings that enable users homed on Microsoft Lync Online to have access to Enterprise Voice features such as media bypass, Enhanced 9-1-1, and call parking. A hybrid scenario (also known as a split-domain scenario) is a Lync Server deployment in which some users have accounts homed on-premises while other users have accounts homed on Lync Online.

The Get-CsTenantHybridConfiguration cmdlet can only be used with Lync Online.


Get-CsTenantHybridConfiguration [[-Identity] <XdsIdentity>] [-Tenant <guid>] [-LocalStore] [<CommonParameters>]Get-CsTenantHybridConfiguration [-Tenant <guid>] [-Filter <string>] [-LocalStore] [<CommonParameters>]


Example 1

The command shown in Example 1 returns the property values for the global collection of tenant hybrid configuration settings.

Copy Code
Get-CsTenantHybridConfiguration -Identity "Global"

Example 2

In Example 2, property values are returned for the custom tenant hybrid configuration settings applied to the tenant with the TenantId "bf19b7db-6960-41e5-a139-2aa373474354".

Copy Code
Get-CsTenantHybridConfiguration -Tenant "bf19b7db-6960-41e5-a139-2aa373474354"

Example 3

Example 3 returns tenant hybrid configuration information for all of your available tenants. To do this, the command first calls the Get-CsTenant cmdlet to return a collection of all of these tenants. This collection is then piped to the ForEach-Object cmdlet, which takes each tenant in the collection and, one-by-one, performs two tasks. First, the cmdlet prints out the Active Directory display name for the tenant; this ensures that each collection of settings can be readily identified. After that, the ForEach-Object cmdlet runs the Get-CsTenantHybridConfiguration cmdlet to return the tenant hybrid configuration settings for the tenant in question.

Copy Code
Get-CsTenant | ForEach-Object {$_.DisplayName; Get-CsTenantHybridConfiguration -Tenant $_.TenantId}

Detailed Description

In a hybrid or "split domain" deployment, an organization has some users who have accounts homed on Lync Online while simultaneously having other users who have accounts homed on the on-premises version of Lync Server. By default, users homed on Lync Online do not have access to the complete range of capabilities offered by Enterprise Voice; that's because the Lync Online servers do not have direct access to Lync Server deployment and network configuration information. Among other things, Lync Online users do not have default access to such things as:

  • Enhanced 9-1-1, the Lync Server service used for making emergency phone calls.

  • Call parking, the Lync Server service which enables users to place a call on hold phone A, then retrieve that call from phone B.

  • Media bypass, which enables calls to and from the public switched telephone network (PSTN) to bypass the Mediation server, helping to minimize transcoding and network latency.

  • PSTN conferencing dial-in and dial-out, which enables users to participate in the audio portion of an online conference by using any PSTN telephone or mobile device.

  • The Response Group application, which provides a way for you to automatically route phone calls to entities such as a help desk or customer support line. By default, Lync Server users cannot function as Response Group agents.

In order to provide Lync Online users with access to these Enterprise Voice capabilities, administrators need to assign the appropriate values to hybrid configuration settings such as the internal and external Web service URLs and the fully qualified domain name of the organization's Access Edge server. These values, which can only be configured by using the Set-CsTenantHybridConfiguration cmdlet, provide the Lync Online servers with the information needed to make use of these advanced Enterprise Voice features.

You can return information about the tenant hybrid configuration settings currently in use in your organization by using the Get-CsTenantHybridConfiguration cmdlet.


Parameter Required Type Description




Enables you to use wildcard characters in order to return a collection of tenant hybrid configuration settings. Because you are limited to a single, global collection of hybrid configuration settings there is no need to use the Filter parameter. However, this is valid syntax for the Get-CsTenantHybridConfiguration cmdlet:

Get-CsTenantHybridConfiguration –Filter "g*"




Unique Identity of the tenant hybrid configuration settings to be returned. Because you are limited to a single, global collection of hybrid configuration settings, the only collection that can be returned by using the Identity parameter is the global collection:

-Identity global

To modify the settings for an individual tenant, use the Tenant parameter instead of the Identity parameter.




Retrieves the tenant hybrid configuration data from the local replica of the Central Management store, rather than the Central Management store itself.




Globally unique identifier (GUID) of the tenant account whose hybrid configuration settings are being returned. For example:

–Tenant "38aad667-af54-4397-aaa7-e94c79ec2308"

You can return the tenant ID for each of your tenants by running this command:

Get-CsTenant | Select-Object DisplayName, TenantID

If you are using a remote session of Windows PowerShell and are connected only to Lync Online you do not have to include the Tenant parameter. Instead, the tenant ID will automatically be filled in for you based on your connection information. The Tenant parameter is primarily for use in a hybrid deployment.

Input Types

None. The Get-CsTenantHybridConfiguration cmdlet does not accept pipelined input.

Return Types

The Get-CsTenantHybridConfiguration cmdlet returns instances of the Microsoft.Rtc.Management.WritableConfig.Settings.HybridConfiguration.TenantHybridConfiguration object.
