SharePoint Online Anyone Link Expiration

Dan Alexander 21 Reputation points

Hi Folks,

If the organization has the default 30 days setting below:

"Link expiration" - You can require all "Anyone" links to expire, and specify the maximum number of days allowed

But a user choose an manual "Set Expiration Date" for say 90 days from now. Will the user set expiration take precedent over the org level setting? ie. is the org level setting only for anyone links left with no expiration?

    Hi @Dan Alexander ,

    Could you please tell me more about what do you mean by manual "Set Expiration Date"? Is that site-level expiration days for Anyone links set like screenshot below or by the PowerShell command: Set-SPOSite -Identity <siteurl> -AnonymousLinkExpirationInDays 90 -OverrideTenantAnonymousLinkExpirationPolicy $True ?
    If so, site-level expiration days for Anyone links will override org-level setting. All site-level expiration days for Anyone links are the same with org-level by default if you haven't customize them via the methods mentioned above.

    Updated ----------
    Yes. Item-level expiration days for Anyone links will take precedent over the org-level setting. In conclusion, Item-level takes precedence over site-level and site-level takes precedence over org-level.

    Sorry, by manual, I mean set by the end user in the sharing window (screenshot).
