avoid SharePoint admin role check?

Post by wileywimberly » Aug 06, 2018 5:59 pm

Hi,

With the introduction of SharePoint and OneDrive support in version 2, there is now a check for the SharePoint admin role when adding a new organization.
Is there any way to avoid this check? As a service provider it is hard to justify requiring sharepoint admin if the tenant only wants to archive exchange mailboxes.

I opened case 03130616 and was told that this check is now a requirement. They recommended posting here with a feature request or to see if anyone has a way to circumvent the SharePoint admin role requirement.

Ideally it would warn but still allow us to add the org without these permissions. Archiving SharePoint and OneDrive wouldn't work unless they were added obviously, but exchange archiving should.

Thanks!

Hi Wiley,

I have received that feature request and asked the team to look into it.

Cheers

hi
i encountered the same problem
we backup just exchange data, i configured the job not to backup sharepoint or onedrive.
i tried removing the permisson AFTER setting up the job, and the job will not run

please consider changing this
with exchange you can assign the specific permissions needed, rather than the administrator roles...

Hi skate88,

We are not only considering making changes for the next update, but planning them ;-). But for the moment, the only workaround is to add that role. Sorry about that
Mike
