You have many SharePoint farms and a few OOS farms. You are not sure which SharePoint farm connected to this specific OOS farm. You could check all SharePoint farms... but

Permissions required to view SharePoint Online Audit Logs

Submitted by Vladilen on Tue, 02/18/2020 - 16:52

Audit logs are moved from SharePoint site collection to Office 365 Security and Compliance Center.

I.e. to view Audit Logs in on-prem you have to go to the site collection and get audit logs for this site collection.

In Office 365 it is different: 
1) no audit logs within site collection
2) Search for tenant-level Audit logs now available from Office 365 Security and Compliance Center

So in Office 365 the one who have tenant SharePoint Administrator  role cannot get audit logs.

Consider some global shifts happened in IT during last decades:

  • Service-Oriented Model
  • Virtualization
  • Automation
  • Faster Networks

All of that allows Clouds exist

Consider also

  • Fuzzy Organization Boundaries - Remote Workers
  • More Complicated Software
  • High salary for IT professional
  • Business must change faster 

All of that lead to Clouds concept

MS Teams or SharePoint

Submitted by Vladilen on Thu, 11/21/2019 - 18:22

MS Teams + SharePoint site

  • is good for "managerial" people, who need to keep everything under control in a single place
  • is good for "collaboration-style" activities, i.e. Projects, PoC, brainstorming

Default retention period is 180 days (can be prolonged)

Permissions are simplified (you have owners and members only)
