Checking OneDrive permissions

Cristian Perez 0 Reputation points

Hi, my team and I are administrators of a company of more than 4000 employees, we were ordered to review and remove all access permissions we have to the OneDrive of other users, but being so many, it is very difficult to check if we have permissions to the OneDrive of each user, one by one and this would take away a lot of valuable time.

My question is, is there any way to see to which OneDrives/Sharepoint sites we have permissions? A PowerShell script or some option from the Microsoft 365 admin center.

Let's say the account has permission to view the OneDrive of 5 users in a company of 5000, but Mike doesn't know which are these 5 users, is there any way to know without having to check each of the 5000 users?

We really appreciate your help here!

    Hi @Cristian Perez ,

    Microsoft 365 admin center does not have an option to see which OneDrives/Sharepoint sites we have permissions to.

    As a workaround, here is how to use the SharePoint search to get a list of all sites you have access to:

    1. Login to >> In the App Launcher, click on “SharePoint” to get the SharePoint Online start page.
    2. On the search box, type “contentclass:STS_Site OR contentclass:STS_Web” and hit enter.
    3. Click on the “Sites” tab, and this will show all sites you have access to.

    Here are my test results:User's image
