Filtering

You can quickly filter lists based on the predefined criteria. The steps to filter a list is the same across all lists.

To apply a filter

Click one or more filters and select a value from the dropdown list.

Filters are applied immediately when selected. Each predefined filter also displays the count of items for each value available in the dropdown list. These values take into consideration any other filter that is already applied. For example, in the image above, there are 10 accounts in the Accounts list that have Status = New because the list has already been filtered for Unmatched accounts of type User.

To clear a filter

Click the X icon in the filter box to clear a single filter

-or-

Click Clear All to clear all filters.

The filters may be automatically applied, when you navigate across the interface. For example, navigate from assessment reports, view details on the specific task, or click links in notifications.

Account Migration

In this chapter:

What We Migrate

The On Demand Migration service for Accounts migrates discovered user accounts and the following types of discovered groups:

  • Microsoft 365 Groups
    • ownership (for accounts that have a pair on the target tenant )
    • membership (for accounts that have a pair on the target tenant )
    • email address for migrated Microsoft 365 Groups will be created in default target domain. See Microsoft Teams Migration for details on how to migrate Microsoft 365 Groups associated with Teams.
  • Security groups
    • ownership (for accounts that have a pair on the target tenant )
    • membership (for accounts that have a pair on the target tenant )
  • Mail-enabled security groups
    • ownership (for accounts that have a pair on the target tenant )
    • membership (for accounts that have a pair on the target tenant )
    • membership approval
    • delivery management
    • message approval
    • MailTip
    • group delegation
    • visibility in GAL
  • Distribution lists
    • ownership (for accounts that have a pair on the target tenant )
    • membership ( for accounts that have a pair on the target tenant )
    • membership approval
    • delivery management
    • message approval
    • MailTip
    • group delegation
    • SendAs and SendOnBehalf group delegates
    • visibility in GAL

Migrating distribution lists with group delegations

On Demand migrates distribution lists with group delegations like SendAs and SendOnBehalf, including scenarios where the distribution list in the target exists or does not exist, or exists and does or does not have group delegations. When the distribution list with group delegations exists in the target then only newly added group delegations are migrated, and group delegations are ignored if anything is deleted at the source. Existing SendAs and SendOnBehalf group delegations on the target, either preexisting before On Demand migration or migrated by On Demand will be left intact and merged with the one migrated from the source.

Delegated accounts are migrated as follows:

  Mail User Mail Box Mail Enabled Security Group Distribution List
SendAs Y Y Y  
SendOnBehalf Y Y Y Y

 

NOTE: Microsoft does not support the following delegated account types so they do not apply to the migration.

  • For SendAS: AAD User, External/Guest User, Distribution List, Security Group
  • For SendOnBehalf: AAD User, External / Guest User, Security Group

NOTE:The Azure AD administrator account of the target tenant will be added as an owner to all target mail-enabled security groups, distribution groups and Microsoft 365 Groups.
