Owners

Managing owners is a critical part of a successful migration. The Owners section shows the results of our owner identification efforts; including owner conflicts, warning levels, all ownership related metadata, the probability that ownership has been identified, who a presently is the owner of a file, and who Migration Manager for PSTs thinks should be the owner.

In some migrations, a lot of effort is required in the Owners section to ensure the data discovered is going where it is expected to go. Upon discovery, ownership management can begin and drastically reduce the level of effort required towards the middle and end of a migration. Owner management can also be delayed until later in the migration. If file ownership is not addressed early in the project, the files could be blocked from ingestion due to not meeting the minimum ownership probability threshold.

The options on the home ribbon for the Owners sub-menu are as follows:

Refresh

Refreshes the data

Recalculate Ownership

Calculates ownership probability and conflict warning of the selection

Accept Suggest User

Assigns ownership of the selection to the user suggested
