Auto-assign as administrator
To allow ShareGate Desktop to auto-assign Site Collection Administrator permissions, toggle on (toggle off is the default).
For full functionality, we recommend Site Collection Administrator permissions (even if you are a Farm Administrator).
This allows Sharegate to automatically grant your user account the required rights when you access a site collection.
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.
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.
