Access to Office 365 resources
Always consent access to your Office 365 resources.
Consenting access to your Office 365 resources allows ShareGate Desktop to identify to Office 365 that it is running operations on your tenant through an access token.
It does this through the Azure ShareGate Desktop app in your Azure Active Directory.
Auto-assign as administrator
We recommend Site Collection Administrator permissions (even if you are a Farm Administrator) to get full functionality with ShareGate Desktop.
To allow the app to auto-assign Site Collection Administrator permissions, toggle on (toggle off is the default).
This allows ShareGate Desktop to automatically grant your user account the required rights when you access a site collection or when the app crawls your environment.
Note: This option only works when you are connected directly to your SharePoint farm. This applies to the user account that is used to connect to the farm as Site Collection Administrator. Permissions added in this way will not be removed automatically. For information on how to undo this action once applied, click here.
