How to connect Powershell to an Office 365 Tenant

Step 1: Install required software

These steps are only required once on each computer you will be running powershell from, not every time you connect.

Run this to connect:

$LiveCred = Get-Credential$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri -Credential $LiveCred -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection

Import-PSSession $Session

Then to remove it:

Remove-PSSession $Session

If you close the Windows PowerShell window without disconnecting from the server-side session, your connection will remain open for 15 minutes. Your account can have only three connections to the server-side session at one time.


Hope it helps
