Irrelevant management role entries without parameters are displayed in Exchange Server 2016

Applies to: Exchange Server 2016

Symptoms


Assume that you use the Get-ManagementRoleEntry cmdlet to retrieve management role entries that have been configured on management roles in Microsoft Exchange Server 2016. You could notice that some role entries without parameters that are irrelevant to Exchange Server are listed in the PowerShell outputs. After you apply this update, the irrelevant management role entries won't display.

For example:

Get-ManagementRoleEntry "mailbox search\*"

Name                                                 Role                     Parameters

----                                                     ----                      ----------

SetShardRelevancyData                Mailbox Search            {}

GetUnifiedGroupUnseenCount     Mailbox Search            {}

GetShardRelevancyScore              Mailbox Search            {}

GetShardRelevancyData                Mailbox Search            {}

This example retrieves a list of all the role entries that exist on the Mailbox Search management role. You can see that the outputs without parameters in this example aren't Exchange Server related and should not display in the list.

Resolution
