Processing SharePoint Online

Processing SharePoint online allows target users access sites, libraries, lists, and other content on the source tenant by creating a linked guest user in the source for each migrated / matched target account. Then the guest user is granted the same direct permissions as the corresponding source account to access source SharePoint resources.

In order to process SharePoint Online resources, you must perform the following:

  1. Turn on external sharing in SharePoint admin center. For details, see Turn external sharing on or off for SharePoint Online.
  2. Grant consent for On Demand Migration to process SharePoint Online resources.

Refer to Required Permissions section for the minimal permissions required to perform this task.

Processing Application Assignments

Application assignments processing ensures that the target users see the same list of cloud applications on as their source counterparts. Refer to Processing Resources for more details.

NOTE: On Demand Migration assigns applications to the target users, but it’s up to each particular application how to check the access level. Some applications may have their own account databases and permission assignments, thus their access rights must be provisioned manually.

Refer to Required Permissions section for the minimum user account permissions required to perform this task.
