Migration of File Shares to SP Online via SharePoint migration tool RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

     I'm looking for a way to move files shares to SharePoint Online. Right now I'm looking at SharePoint Migration Tool. everything looks fine but.... What kind of access rights do I need to have on file shares in order to move other users permissions? Do I need to be an admin - or I can be just user with full control?

    Best Regards,

    Marek

  • Full Control would be more than sufficient . Since there are only two types of permissions that will be migrated: Read and Write.

    If a file has Write permission for user1, then the file will be set to Contribute for user1 in SPO. If a file has Read permission for user1, then the file will be set to Read for user1 in SPO. Note: At this time, the special permissions, such as Deny, will not be saved. So all you need is Full control.
