Task NO. #1, You are not SharePoint Online Admin User RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am running V2.0.99.0 of the SharePoint Migration Tool. My O365 account is a Global Admin but I keep getting this error when adding a csv for bulk migration.

  • You need to add your account as the site collection owner to the destination site in the SharePoint admin center. Just being global admin doesn't make your account a site collection admin for all the sites.

    I've experienced this when doing OneDrive migrations, you obviously don't want to manually have to add yourself to every user's site if you have a lot of users to migrate so can be addressed via powershell, I used this: https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/office/Onedrive-for-Business-bulk-4b6080e3

  • Thanks, it really could do with being made clear, the script I found took a bit of googling but has been around a while now so seems to have always been a requirement when migrating data into SharePoint Online.
