Calendar permissions My Organization in UI is different to Default in Powershell

Allison Gibb 0 Reputation points

We have an issue where the Get-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity\Calendar does not display the same permissions that are listed in Outlook UI.

I thought My Organization (UI) and Default (Powershell) were the same thing but they show different permissions. Also the other people in the UI do not show in Powershell query and vice versa.

Firstly is my assumption about My Organization and Default being one and the same true

Secondly can I see what permissions have been set in the UI from Powershell

We run a hybrid environment. Outlook Version 2304. All mailboxes are online.

    Hi @ Allison Gibb

    Just want to know how do you check the calendar permissions in outlook?

    It is recommended that you check that the calendar permissions in OWA match the results in PowerShell.


    When I use the following steps to view calendar permissions in the Outlook client, the results I get are the same as those I get with the Get-MailboxFolderPermission command:

    1.       Sign in to mailbox and open the calendar.

    2.       Select the calendar for the current mailbox under My Calendar on the right.

    3.       Right click this calendar and select Properties.

    4.       Open the Permissions tab and view who the calendar is currently sharing with.
