Content Search - requirements for administration.

Ken Jasa 21 Reputation points


New to the cloud. My admin account in Exchange Online does not have a mailbox. The account was added to the 'Discovery Management' role group.

Does the admin account need a mailbox license to perform Content Search?

Thank you,

    No, you can run searches/exports without a mailbox. The preview functionality previously required a mailbox, but using the new Purview compliance center UI you should be fine even without one.
