Remove - "Everyone Except External Users" from SharePoint online Tenant . RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Team,

    Can we delete "Everyone Except External Users" from sharePoint online tenant?

    If, what would be consequences of removing it?

    Issue is we have user with office 365 license, but don't want them to have access to sharepoint intranet tenant.

    Since they have  office 365 license, by default they are added to "Everyone Except External Users" group.

    is there any other alternative to resolve this issue??

    Thanks,

    vyas Anitha

  • You can remove the SharePoint License for your users. Check out this link:

    https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office365/enterprise/powershell/disable-access-to-services-with-office-365-powershell

    You should also turn off the SharePoint Tile from Waffle.

  • SharePoint Online does NOT enforce licensing requirements, everyone in the organization will be able to access pages (depending on the permissions of course). You can remove the "everyone except external users" claim by running the following PowerShell cmdlet:

    Set-SPOTenant -ShowEveryoneExceptExternalUsersClaim:$false

    More info here: https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/office-docs-powershell/blob/master/sharepoint/sharepoint-ps/sharepoint-online/Set-SPOTenant.md

  • agreed, SP Online doesn't enforce licensing requirement. Anyone in the organization, when added to Office 365

    automatically added to "Everyone Except External Users", which has contribute access by default to SP site.

    Requirement is not to, disable from people picker but completely delete or remove from SP Site.

    Is this possible? Can we completely remove this group from SP Site.

  • Hi Vyas,

    Per my knowledge, there is no OOB way to remove the group completely from the tenant.

    As a workaround, I suggest you hide the group via PowerShell command.

    Or you can contact Office 365 Support(Admin Center->Support) for help.

    Thanks,

    Wendy
