Git: Give access to an O365 Mailbox to single user

I added a script to my personal github – Gives permission to a mailbox on Office 365. I find myself needing to do this somewhat regularly, and the rule is if you’re something over and over again, automate it as much as you can.

https://github.com/brandons-zz/Powershell/blob/master/Set-UserMailboxHiddenUnHidden.ps1

Here’s the code:

<#
.SYNOPSIS
    Give access to an O365 Mailbox to single user
.DESCRIPTION
    This script connects to Office 365 and gives a user full access rights to another user's mailbox. Requires MSOnline Powershell for Active Directory
    https://www.powershellgallery.com/packages/MSOnline/1.1.183.17
.PARAMETER MailboxUPN
    The mailbox we want to give someone access to.
.PARAMETER AccessUPN
    The user we are giving mailbox access to.
