On November 11, 2019, BitTitan will launch a new app-based authentication for SharePoint, OneDrive for Business, Office 365 Groups (Documents) migrations, and Teams migrations. This app will provide greater security and reduce the potential of Microsoft throttling. It will replace the previous Office 365 authentication, which has been subject to increased throttling by Microsoft recently. This new authentication method is specific for Office 365 tenants.
Important: This app must be added in both .microsoftonline.com tenants (Source and Destination) by November 11, 2019 to reduce the throttling and failures due to Microsoft throttling policy changes.
If this app is not added on both tenants by November 11, 2019, MigrationWiz will attempt to create a temporary substitute app in the tenants to be used for authentication. We do not recommend relying on this substitute app creation, as this behavior will only be a temporary transitional behavior within MIgrationWiz. To avoid potential interruptions or failures in migrations, it is strongly recommended to set the app up prior to November 11, 2019. This will then allow the new authentication to take over automatically, with no other steps required.
The steps for creating this app are below. Support will be available to assist you with any challenges or concerns you may discover during this process.
Add the App to the tenant
