Getting all MS Teams User Policies using PowerShell

With everyone working at home at the moment, you might need to grab a report of the User Policies for MS Teams. These few steps will show you how to grab all the users and display in a csv file.

To work with policies you first need to obtain the PowerShell module – SkypeOnlineConnector. Which you can download from this link

Installing the SkypeOnlineConnector and creating a session

Once you have installed the PowerShell module you will need to import the module and create a PowerShell session.

Import-Module "C:\\Program Files\\Common Files\\Skype for Business Online\\Modules\\SkypeOnlineConnector\\SkypeOnlineConnector.psd1"
$Session = New-CsOnlineSession
Import-PSSession -Session:$Session -AllowClobber

You will be prompted for MS Teams administrator username and password, you can pass your credentials in with the -credential parameter at the end of New-CsOnlineSession, however this doesn’t work with MFA.

Once connected you will be able to grab all users using the Get-CsOnlineUser cmdlet, or grab one user by providing the users Identity.


If you call the above for a single user you will see that there are loads of policies that can be set. Not all are MS Teams related. The ones I will be focusing on are the same 12 policies you see when you view Assigned policies for a user in Teams Administration.

These policies are named slightly different in the results compared to the display name shown above.

Display Name Policy Name
Meeting policy TeamsMeetingPolicy
Messaging policy TeamsMessagingPoliy
Live events policy TeamsMeetingBroadcastPolicy
App permission policy TeamsAppPermissionPolicy
App setup policy TeamsAppSetupPolicy
Call park policy TeamsCallParkPolicy
Calling policy TeamsCallingPolicy
Caller ID policy CallerIdPolicy
Teams policy TeamsChannelsPolicy
Emergency calling policy TeamsEmergencyCallingPolicy
Emergency call routing policy TeamsEmergencyCallRoutingPolicy
Dial plan TenantDialPlan
Teams Upgrade TeamsUpgradePolicy

The following script will grab all users and their current policy for the above polices, with the provided path it will output to csv file.

Please note: Anything that is set to Global policy will be blank.

.\Get-UserTeamPolicies.ps1 -Path:.\AllTeamUsersPolicies.csv

#OutPut CSV File Path
$InformationPreference = 'Continue'
Write-Information -MessageData "Obtaining Module, please connect when prompted..."
Import-Module "C:\\Program Files\\Common Files\\Skype for Business Online\\Modules\\SkypeOnlineConnector\\SkypeOnlineConnector.psd1"
$Session = New-CsOnlineSession
Import-PSSession -Session:$Session -AllowClobber
Write-Information -MessageData "Getting all enabled users"
$Users = Get-CsOnlineUser | Select-Object DisplayName, `
UserPrincipalName, `
SipAddress, `
TeamsMeetingPolicy, `
TeamsMessagingPolicy, `
TeamsMeetingBroadcastPolicy, `
TeamsAppPermissionPolicy, `
TeamsAppSetupPolicy, `
TeamsCallParkPolicy, `
TeamsCallingPolicy, `
CallerIdPolicy, `
TeamsChannelsPolicy, `
TeamsEmergencyCallingPolicy, `
TeamsEmergencyCallRoutingPolicy, `
TenantDialPlan, `
$Users | Export-Csv -Path:$Path -NoTypeInformation
Write-Information "Complete"
Remove-PSSession -Session:$session

In a later blog, I will be using the csv file to update user policies.

Bonus: If you want to get all users for just a single policy you can perform a filter on the Get-CsOnlineUser

Write-host "Teams Meeting Policy"
Get-CsOnlineUser -Filter {TeamsMeetingPolicy -eq 'GivenPolicyNameBlankForGlobal'} | Select UserPrincipalName
