   -User <String>
   [-Confirm]
   [-WhatIf]
   [<CommonParameters>]

Description

An eDiscovery Administrator is member of the eDiscovery Manager role group who can also view and access all eDiscovery cases in your organization.

To make a user an eDiscovery Administrator, you must first add the user to the eDiscovery Manager role group by running the Add-RoleGroupMember cmdlet. After the user is a member of this role group, you can run the Add-eDiscoveryCaseAdmin cmdlet to add the user to the list of eDiscovery Administrators.

To use this cmdlet in Security & Compliance PowerShell, you need to be assigned permissions. For more information, see Permissions in the Microsoft Purview compliance portal.

Examples

Example 1

This example adds an eDiscovery Administrator.

Parameters

-Confirm

The Confirm switch specifies whether to show or hide the confirmation prompt. How this switch affects the cmdlet depends on if the cmdlet requires confirmation before proceeding.

  • Destructive cmdlets (for example, Remove-* cmdlets) have a built-in pause that forces you to acknowledge the command before proceeding. For these cmdlets, you can skip the confirmation prompt by using this exact syntax: -Confirm:$false.
  • Most other cmdlets (for example, New-* and Set-* cmdlets) don't have a built-in pause. For these cmdlets, specifying the Confirm switch without a value introduces a pause that forces you acknowledge the command before proceeding.
