Hello I do have requirement to migrate emails from one tenant to another tenant. both tenants are in O365. organizations preferred to go with Microsoft native tool.

the source and target organization is very secured environment.

could you help what kind of exact permissions or role the migration account have to be assigned? As per MS article below is given but not role or permission specified..

Before starting, be sure you have the necessary permissions to configure the Move Mailbox application in Azure, EXO Migration Endpoint, and the EXO Organization Relationship.

Thanks
