I need to know if when I migrate my videos that I have saved on Stream Classic to Stream on Sharepoint, if the users with current access to those videos on Stream Classic will be also migrated?

    Hi @Nirvana2705 ,

    Regarding changes in user permissions during stream migration:

    Permissions: We mirror permissions between videos on Stream (Classic) and Stream (on SharePoint) as much as possible. But there are differences in the two versions, based on physical location construct and edit vs view rights. It's especially true for videos associated with multiple groups, Stream groups, and companywide-wide channels. In any conflicting scenario between the two versions, we follow the principle of least access. For complete details, read how videos in group move together and detailed permissions. Permissions may change between two versions of Stream in case admins are using script to re-arrange content on Stream(Classic)

    For information on how to mirror permissions between Stream (classic) and Stream (on SharePoint), check out this article:


    Once you’re familiar with the differences in permissions, set custom permissions on a few test videos, migrate them, and then verify the permissions behaved as you expected.
