Making Exchange-based rooms visible to Performance DNA

Software product name Performance DNA
SLS Version Number 9.0
Subject Making Exchange-based rooms visible to Performance DNA


You have configured Performance DNA for use with Exchange, but no rooms are appearing.


Start Windows PowerShell and use the following commands to create and maintain a room list within Exchange.

Use the following commands to set up a new session with access to the Exchange server

$UserCredential = Get-Credential
$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri https://outlook.office365.com/powershell-liveid/ -Credential $UserCredential -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection
Import-PSSession $Session

Room lists can be created by using the Exchange Online PowerShell cmdlet New-DistributionGroup and the RoomList parameter as shown below (change the ExampleRoomList and testroomoptions to match the Room List and Room Names for your environment):

New-DistributionGroup -RoomList -Name 'ExampleRoomList' -Members ('testroom1','testroom2','testroom3')

To display all the rooms in the list:

Get-DistributionGroupMember 'ExampleRoomList'

To add a room to the room list

Add-DistributionGroupMember -Identity 'ExampleRoomList' -Member 'testroom4'

To remove a room from the room list

Remove-DistributionGroupMember -Identity 'ExampleRoomList' -Member 'testroom3'

To remove the whole room list:

Remove-DistributionGroup ''ExampleRoomList''

To end the session:

Get-PSSession I$  where {$_.ComputerName -eq "outlook.office365.com"} I$  Remove-PSSession

Please note that the above scripts are suggested scripts, you may wish to change them or use alternatives to fit the local security policy
