UPDATE: SharePoint Site Swap

MC204488, Stay Informed, Published date: Feb 22, 2020

FROM MICROSOFT CORP

“Updated March 13, 2020: We have updated this message with additional details and resources.

We are gradually enabling the capability to swap the location of a SharePoint root site with another site using a new PowerShell cmdlet, Invoke-SPOSiteSwap, as announced in MC187289 (August 2019) and MC189866 (September 2019). We are pleased to extend this feature to customers that have more than ~10,000 licenses. Customers with fewer than ~10,000 licenses already have this capability.

  • We will be gradually rolling this out to customers with ~10,000 licenses or more beginning in mid-March 2020.
  • The rollout will be complete by the end of April.

This message is associated with Office 365 Roadmap ID 51259.How does this affect me?

Admins will be able to swap the SharePoint root site with another site using the PowerShell cmdlet, Invoke-SPOSiteSwap. The root site will be archived automatically. You must use SharePoint Online Management Shell version 16.0.8812.1200 or later, which will be available at the end of February.

We will make another announcement when we have enabled Site Swap in the new SharePoint admin center for customers with more than ~10,000 licenses. Customers with fewer than ~10,000 licenses already have this access.What do I need to do to prepare for this change?

There is nothing you need to do to prepare for this change. If you would like to take advantage of Site Swap install the latest version of the SharePoint Online Management Shell and the Page Diagnostic Tool version 2.1 or later.
