Changing the policy for a large number of meeting rooms
A policy is a group of settings that can be applied to individual users. Each policy type has its own set of cmdlets for creating, viewing, deleting, and updating the policies themselves, and then assigning those policies to users. The general structure is:
GET commands (for example, Get-CsTeamsMeetingPolicy): It returns the policy documents that are available for you to assign in your organisation, including the policies created by Microsoft for you to use as well as the custom policies you have created.
To find only the custom policies you have created in your organisation, use -Filter "tag:*".
NEW commands (for example, New-CsTeamsMeetingPolicy): it creates new policies for your organisation to assign to users in your organisation. Not all policies support the creation of custom policies. Often this is to ensure that the policies you use in your organisation have a supported combination of settings.
SET commands (for example, Set-CsTeamsMeetingPolicy): it sets particular values on a given policy. Some policies don't have SET commands available, or they contain parameters that can't be customised in the policy. The PowerShell descriptions tell you which parameters can't be customised.
To edit the policy that will be assigned to users in your organisation who do not have a custom policy assigned by default, you need to run Set-Cs<PolicyName> -Identity Global.
REMOVE commands (for example, Remove-CsTeamsMeetingPolicy): it deletes a custom policy that has been created in your tenant. If you delete a custom policy that has been assigned to at least one user in your organisation, that user will fall back to the global policy.
Note: You can’t actually remove the global policy in your organisation, but if you want to reset the global policy in your organisation to the Microsoft-provided default settings, run Remove-Cs<PolicyName> -Identity Global.
GRANT command (for example, Grant-CsTeamsMeetingPolicy): it assigns a policy to a particular user.
To remove a custom policy assignment and make the user fall back to the default policy in your organisation, run Grant-Cs<PolicyName> -Identity <User Identity> -PolicyName $null.
