MC244886: Redirect of compliance solutions from legacy SCC portal to Microsoft 365 compliance center

The Microsoft 365 compliance center provides easy access to the data and tools you need to manage your organization’s compliance needs. It is the recommended portal for compliance solutions. We will soon begin redirecting users from the legacy Security & Compliance Center (SCC) portal to the Microsoft 365 compliance center for the following solutions: Audit log, Data loss prevention, Information governance, and Records management. This is a continuation of our migration to the Microsoft 365 compliance center; we began redirecting users there to access Advanced eDiscovery in September 2020 (MC223174).

MC244886: Redirect of compliance solutions from legacy SCC portal to Microsoft 365 compliance center

Affected Workloads

  • Microsoft 365 suite

When this will happen

Rollout began in mid-April and is expected to be complete by mid-July (previously end of June).

How this will affect your organization

Users accessing compliance solutions in the SCC portal will automatically be redirected to the appropriate solutions in the Microsoft 365 compliance center. This change enables users to view all compliance solutions within one portal, and delivers a modern user experience that conforms to the latest accessibility standards (WCAG 2.1). The Microsoft 365 compliance center also provides access to compliance solutions like Compliance Manager and new and incremental feature updates across compliance solution areas.

With automatic redirection turned on, users will be routed to the new portal when the following solutions are accessed:

  • Audit log
  • Data loss prevention
  • Information governance
  • Records management
  • Communication compliance (formerly Supervision)
  • Data subject requests
  • Conent search
  • eDiscovery
  • Advanced eDiscovery

Note: this change only impacts the user interface; existing cmdlets and backend jobs will continue to run the same way.

Additionally, we have facilitated end-to-end Alerts and Permissions management as well as a DLP insights dashboard within the Microsoft 365 compliance center (see MC256030/MC249616/MC249618), so these functions no longer need to managed within the legacy portal.

What you need to do to prepare

Redirection is enabled by default.

Global admins and Compliance admins can enable or disable redirection in the Microsoft 365 compliance center by navigating to Settings > Compliance Center and using the Automatic redirection toggle switch under Portal redirection.

We will continue to innovate and add value to the solutions in the Microsoft 365 compliance center. Therefore we recommend transitioning your organization the solutions within the newer portal. Any future plans to take the legacy Security & Compliance Center portal offline will be communicated via Message Center.
