Sharing permissions can be transferred for Office 365 groups, security groups and user accounts that have matches on the target tenant. The sharing permissions of the groups and users that have no match on the target tenant will be ignored and related warnings are reported.
Migration of permissions granted to users using Sharing Links is supported if the Convert Sharing Link permissions to direct permissions option is selected. The sharing link migration process does not create new links on the target but grants target users direct permissions that were provided by the link to paired users on the source. Users can access their shared content through the Shared With Me panel. Some restrictions apply. If the Convert Sharing Link permissions to direct permissions option is selected, some link sharing permissions will not migrate properly if the user has shared this file or folder with more than 30 users. Only 30 users will have permissions from the Sharing Links, while others will not be processed due to Microsoft limitation.
In case any sharing permission will be removed on the source after the file or folder is migrated, the links to this file or folder are still visible in Shared with me and Shared by me views on OneDrive for Business Online, but the file or folder cannot be accessed.
For migrated files and folders that do not exist in target before migration, source permission will always be used.
Consider the following specifics on how file sharing permissions will be handled for migrated files and folders that exist in target before migration:
For users as permission holder (internal/external) and groups as permission holder (Office 365 group or security group) sharing permissions will be handled as follows:
For existing files and folders, the inherited permissions will follow the same rules.
Open the OneDrive tab, Insights view for summary reports of the migration progress. The following summary reports are available:
Reports on the status of the migration of OneDrive users. It is updated in real time.
|Last Run Status||Data from the last run status: new, in progress, completed, failed, stopped. This data relates to the Last Run Status on the List View tab.|
|Progress of Started Users||
Started Users = The users listed on the List View tab with Migration Progress % greater than zero.
The bar chart shows the Migration Progress % for users. It shows how many users have Migration Progress % at fewer than 50%, 50% to 95%, 95% to 99%, and 100%. For example, if the diagram shows 63 users at 100% then 63 users have Migration Progress % value of 100%.
How is Migration Progress % calculated? It is calculated as a ratio of the number of target items to the number of source items. If 10 items have migrated to the target and there are 100 items to be migrated on the source then the ratio for that user Migration Progress % is 10%.
|Average % for started users||This is the average Migration Progress % value for users on the List View.|
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:
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.
Refer to the Processing Resources for step by step instruction how to configure resource processing.
On Demand Migration can process the following resources on the source tenant:
To create a new processing task:
Provide the root URL of the SharePoint site. Refer to Processing SharePoint for details on site configuration and required permissions.
Process Role-Based Access Control (RBAC) roles for current Azure subscriprion.
Refer to the Processing Application Assignments for details.
Select this option so target users are granted access to source systems when an Active Directory group they are a part of is granted access. The process identifies the Active Directory groups the selected users (on the source) are part of and adds the target users to those groups.
The task is created. You can track its progress in the Tasks, view the summary on the Dashboard or monitor alerts and notifications in the Events.
