Tracking OneDrive Migration

Depending on selected migration options, file size, and number of permissions, the content of OneDrive storages is transferred in separate batches that can be submitted for processing to Microsoft OneDrive at the same time. These batches will be processed concurrently, it can take a while before Microsoft OneDrive complete processing of submitted batches. To help tracking current status for every user, the following statistics events are currently supported:

  • Aggregated statistics for batches that are processed will be reported every 10 minutes for every OneDrive storage selected for migration task. This events contain batch processing statistics and information on batch packages that are queued or processed by Microsoft OneDrive more than 30 minutes, if any.
  • Batch package status is reported separately for all batches that are not transferred by Microsoft OneDrive in more than 30 minutes after submission. The status is retrieved for batches that are queued or processed by Microsoft more than 30 minutes only. Depending on Microsoft processing speed the status can be "Queued" or "Processing".

Resource Processing

Once the account migration is complete, you might want to grant target accounts access to source tenant’s resources and applications.

Basic resource processing workflow consists of the following steps:

IMPORTANT: Resource processing does not copy resources to the target tenant. It simply provides the access to source resources by creating a linked guest user in the source for each migrated / matched target account. These guest users are granted the same permissions as the corresponding source accounts and become members of the same SharePoint groups.
Only permissions directly granted to the source account are transferred.

Refer to the Processing Resources for step by step instruction how to configure resource processing.



Processing Resources

On Demand Migration can process the following resources on the source tenant:

  • Microsoft SharePoint Online
  • Resource roles related to selected accounts
  • Applications assigned to selected accounts.

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.
