Computer Discovery: Include scopes

You can specifically add domains, OUs, containers or computers. Domains, OUs and containers can contain many computers, which can significantly increase the time it takes to run the discovery.

For full information on using the browser to add scopes, see Step 2b: Choose scopes for your Office 365 discoveries . You can create scopes using a dynamic query, which is resolved when the discovery is run. This gives you the flexibility to describe the computers you want to target. For more information, see Using Queries to Define Your Scopes .
