    Hi ShareGate,

    Not really enough detail.  What are the implications if we don't select "Always consent access to your Office 365 resources"?  Will a Global admin have to "consent" every time we access the connection if we don't enable this?  Or is this required just to be able to consent?

    Thanks!

    Hi Michael,

    You can click on the link for the Azure ShareGate Desktop Application. It will bring you to this article that should answer all your questions.

    Generally speaking the global admin consent is a one time thing and the application helps a lot with throttling.

    It is also required for certain operations on Microsoft 365 Groups and Teams.

    Best regards,

    Thanks Vic for the quick response!  I guess my main question is, once we have the Global Admin authorize the ShareGate Azure App which creates the access_token, do I then need to enable the "Always consent access to your Office 365 resources" option to use the feature?

    Thanks!

    Hi Michael,

    It's my pleasure. You do not need to activate that feature. When you connect to a new tenant, you usually get a prompt about consenting the app with a global admin account.

    If you had global admin permissions, activating that option automatically consents any new tenant you would connect to in ShareGate Desktop without showing that prompt.

    Once consented by a global admin, the Azure app does its job for any admin connecting to the tenant with ShareGate Desktop, regardless of that setting.

    Best regards,
