Set content hold duration? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Goal: Create a process whereby when a user leaves the company, their mailbox and sharepoint data (i.e. OneDrive) is put on hold for 90 days.  After 90 days the hold is automatically removed and the unlicensed former employees data is purged.

    Environment: o365 hybrid mode; all user mailboxes in the cloud.

    What we've done:

    1. From 365 Security and Compliance --> expand eDiscovery --> eDiscovery --> Create a case.  Created a case called "90 Day Retention".

    2. Open "90 Day Retention" --> go to Holds tab and click Create.

    3. Enter the former employees name as the name of the hold.

    4. Under Choose locations; select the former employees users Exchange email, and then enter the url of the users OneDrive account.  Leave 'keywords' empty under Create query.

    5. Hold now created.

    What we can't figure out is how to have the hold duration set to 90 days.  If we run Get-CaseHoldRule "Case name", we can see properties like "HoldContent" and "HoldDurationDisplayHint".  So it at least seems like we should be able to set a hold duration.  But how??

    Thanks in advance.
