How to get list of Lync users

The list of Lync users may be obtained using the Get-CsUser PowerShell cmdlet without any parameter: Get-CsUser
If you want to get properties of a particular Lync user provide its UPN: Get-CsUser <UPN> Replace <UPN> with the actual UPN (User Principal Name) of an user to get information about it.

The command below allows to retrieve the list of users of a particulat Lync tenant: Get-CsUser -Filter {TenantId -eq <TenantId>} Replace <TenantId> with the needed Lync tenant ID (see below how to find tenant ID).

Refer to the following article in the Microsoft TechNet library for more details about the Get-CsUser cmdlet -

How to get Lync tenant ID

Use one of the following PowerShell cmdlets to get Lync tenant ID.

1. Get tenant ID by Lync user UPN: (Get-CsUser <UPN>).TenantId
2. Get tenant ID by Organizational Unit: (Get-CsTenant –Identity <OU>).TenantId
3. Get tenant ID by a customer domain: (Get-CsTenant –Filter { Domains –eq <OrganizationDomain> }).TenantId

If the Get-CsTenant cmdlet returns empty list refer to the Knowledgebase article for resolution.
