Adding Exchange Online data sources for native Office 365

If you have a native Office 365 environment, there are four data sources that you configure to collect from Exchange Online using remote PowerShell and/or EWS:

Creating an Exchange Online Native User Configuration data source

For a native Office 365 target environment, you can create an Exchange Online native user configuration collection to gather user and distribution group details from Exchange Online using remote PowerShell.

Exchange Online data sources do not display in the Data Collection page until you have added Office 365 as a target environment. For more information, see Adding a target environment for native Office 365 .

For more information about credential prerequisites, see Permissions needed for Exchange Online Native User Configuration data source .

By default, the data source collects only direct members of groups. For example, if a distribution group contained 10 users and 14 distribution groups, the number of direct members would be counted as 24.

If you want to collect the effective members (direct and indirect) for a group you can use the Advanced settings in the Collect Effective (Direct and Indirect) Members for Groups section. For example, if you collect from a distribution group that has 10 user members and one distribution group member (that has 20 members), the number of direct members is 11 but the number of effective members is 30.

Creating an Exchange Online Native Mailbox Configuration data source

For a native Office 365 target environment, you can create a mailbox configuration collection to gather mailbox statistics such as mailbox size, mailbox permissions, and remote devices from Exchange Online mailboxes using remote PowerShell. For hybrid Office 365 (Exchange Online and on-premise Exchange), see Creating an Exchange IIS Logs data source .

Exchange Online data sources do not display in the Data Collection page unless you have added Office 365 as a target environment. For more information, see Adding a target environment for native Office 365 .

Creating an Exchange Online Mailbox Contents data source

You can create a mailbox contents collection for a native Office 365 or for an Active Directory/Office 365 hybrid target environment. The collection gathers email traffic from Exchange Online user mailboxes using Exchange Web Services (EWS).

To improve data collection performance, you can provide multiple credentials when you configure the data source. You can also create different mailbox contents data collections that contain different groups of users.

In addition to message traffic, you can configure the mailbox contents collection to gather the following message information from the target mailboxes:
