File share migration - Permission question RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

    I need to migrate data from Network File shares to SharePoint Online. Tool is working fine, however due to our specific setup Im not able to get Admin rights for those file shares.

    I can see that with read/write access im able to move data and meta data (who created etc) but permissions are not being moved.

    Here is my question: if admin rights are madatory in order to migrate permissions assigned via AD Security Groups? Maybe full control will be enough?

    Generally when we need migrate contents with permission, there is always a permission mapping need to be set.

    Hello,

     Thank you for your reply - what about when access to file/folder is granted via AD Security Group?

  • Group is also a security object that can be added to SharePoint.
