SharePoint Online Discovery: Include Scopes

SharePoint Online discoveries, by default, target the Azure tenant that you specified with the credentials on the Name page in Step 1. Create the Discovery (Name) . Information about your sites, site members, site owners, site groups, permissions, and SharePoint Online Configuration Settings and Policies is collected based on the discovery options.

Select Collect only selected sites to explicitly include individual sites in the scope.
Select Collect all sites with the option to exclude selected sites to collect all available information from most or all of the sites on the target tenant.
Click Add.
Type a keyword and click Search to populate the Available Sites window. Entering additional keywords will narrow the search results.
In the Available Sites window, use the up and down arrows to move through the pages and locate the desired site.
Click Include to add to your selected scopes list.

SharePoint Online Discovery: Optionally refine your scope list with exclusions

Exclusions refine the scope by limiting the collection to only the necessary information.

Click Add.
Enter search criteria and click Search to populate the Available Sites window.
Click Exclude.

SharePoint Online Discovery: Decide what to collect from the tenant in the discovery

Basic information from the tenant (the tenant name and full LDAP path) and sites is always collected.

If you decide to collect Classic Sites and Personal Sites information, the statistical attributes of these sites are not collected.

The following table outlines the additional information that can be collected. Collecting additional information impacts discovery performance. Options with a high performance cost will slow discovery performance more than options with a medium or low performance cost.

Classic Sites



Personal Sites






Site Groups



Policies and Settings



Step 3. Schedule your Discovery

There are five types of schedules you can create (once, daily, weekly, monthly, and yearly). These are the same as the schedule types you can create to run reports in the Report Manager. You can create up to five schedules per discovery. Schedules are grouped alphabetically by type (daily, monthly, once, and weekly) and sorted within the groups chronologically. A schedule can be enabled or disabled at any time.

All times are stored in local time. They will be adjusted when your local time changes, such as for Daylight Savings Time.

When creating or editing the schedule for a discovery, you can view a calendar showing when the discovery will run based on the schedule. A discovery can also be run manually at any time—unless it is currently running. For details, see How is a Discovery Processed? and Manually Running a Discovery .

Once you create a schedule for the discovery, you can see the next scheduled run in the main Manage Discoveries pane. For more information, see Viewing your Discoveries .
