To optimize SharePoint Hierarchy load time, OneDrive site collections are excluded by default.  To use ControlPoint to manage these site collections, ControlPoint Site Collection Administrators must explicitly choose to include them.  (Keep in mind that doing so may significantly increase SharePoint Hierarchy load time, especially if there are a large number of OneDrive site collections in your environment.) Contact Quest Support for details.

A SharePoint List

NOTE:  Variations of this icon are used to represent different types of lists (Document Libraries, Calendars, Announcements, and so on).

SharePoint Users

ControlPoint dashboards provide graphical overviews of targeted data in your SharePoint environment.

SharePoint Summary Dashboard

The SharePoint Summary dashboard contains the following information: SharePoint Summary O365

·statistical information about your SharePoint farm

NOTE: This information is updated daily, when the ControlPoint application pool is restarted, typically after the ControlPoint Scheduler timer job has run.  If the Scheduler timer job is disabled, data retrieval begins when the first request is made to ControlPoint.

Statistical information comes from the following sources.



SharePoint Summary

If Discovery has been run, the data is taken from the ControlPoint Service (xcAdmin) database; if Discovery has not been run, the data is taken directly from SharePoint.

The data is taken from SharePoint Search engine.

NOTE:  If for some reason Search engine is not configured to provide the data, the chart will not display.
