Account Migration

On Demand Migration can migrate discovered accounts and the following types of discovered groups:

  • Security groups, the ownership and membership is supported for the accounts that have a pair on the target tenant.
  • Mail-enabled security groups, including:
    • ownership ( for accounts that have a pair on the target tenant )
    • membership ( for accounts that have a pair on the target tenant )
    • visibility in GAL
  • Distribution groups, including:
    • ownership ( for accounts that have a pair on the target tenant )
    • membership ( for accounts that have a pair on the target tenant )
    • SendAs and SendOnBehalf group delegates
    • visibility in GAL
  • Azure AD Office 365 Group Type objects, the ownership and membership is supported for the accounts that have a pair on the target tenant. In case group owner has not a matched account in the target, target azure AD administrator account will only be specified as group owner. Email address for migrated Office 365 Group object will be created in default target domain. See Microsoft Teams Migration for details on how to migrate Office 365 Groups with Teams functionality (associated with Teams).

IMPORTANT:Target Azure AD administrator account will be added as an owner to all target mail-enabled security groups, distribution groups and Office 365 groups.

NOTE: Migration of security groups with dynamic membership is not supported.

Basic account migration workflow consists of the following steps:

# Step
1 Create collections to streamline the migration process
2 Match accounts / groups by attribute
3

Import mapping from file

4 Migrate accounts / groups

 

Caution: Do not delete matched or migrated accounts or groups from the migration project. If you need to do this anyway, clear the matching for those accounts.

NOTE: In all cases, target groups will be owned by the target Azure AD administrator account that is used to perform the migration.

Account Migration Project Dashboard

This topic is intended for new migration UI. In case you are using classic migration UI See Project Dashboardfor details on Account migration project dashboard.

New Migration UI: Account Migration Dashboard

On the account migration dashboard you can:

  • Organize the accounts into collections that act as “projects within project”. The collections allow you to structure big environments.
  • Analyze your environment and find out the potential misconfiguration and problems that may adversely affect the migration.
  • View all your accounts and user data (Mail, OneDrive), sort, reorder, search, and filter them.
  • Start and manage Address Rewrite Service using Domain Coexistence widget to organize mail flow from selected source mailboxes as if the target mailbox is already used by sender.
  • Configure and enable Hybrid using Hybrid widget to migrate Azure AD accounts synchronized with on-premises AD.

note: Address Rewrite Service requires additional subscription.

  • Temporarily remove objects from the migration project
  • Track the project flow in the Tasks list.

TIP: Give informative names for the tasks. It will simplify the project management and event filtering in the future.

  • Monitor the migration process, detect, and troubleshoot the issues with the Events list.

Using Collections

You can use collections to streamline the migration process. There are two approaches:

  • You can select discovered accounts and create a new collection for them
  • You can create a new empty collection and then populate it with discovered accounts using comma-separated CSV file.

To create a new collection based on selected accounts:

  1. Click Accounts on necessary migration project
  2. Select accounts you want to combine into the collection. You can use search for filtering out the accounts by certain criteria or simply hand-pick the individual accounts or mailboxes from the list.
  3. Click +New Collection in the top right corner of the list view and enter the informative collection name. Click Save to add this collection to the project.

To create a new empty collection and then populate it with accounts:

  1. On the Accounts migration dashboard click More Actions | Add To Collection.
  2. Enter the informative collection name. Click Save to add this collection to the project.
  3. Populate it using comma-separated values (CSV) file as specified in Populating Collections from File.
