Updated March 18, 2022: Microsoft have updated the content below with additional information.

This new feature will be extending data purge functionality to Microsoft Teams content to facilitate the purge of sensitive or misplaced data. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 82125.

Note: Data purge can’t delete items in a review set in eDiscovery (Premium) because the review set contains copies of items in the live service that are stored in an Azure Storage location. To delete items in a review set, you have to delete the eDiscovery (Premium) case that contains the review set. The purge signal will be available via the eDiscovery (Premium) Graph APIs, currently in public preview.

MC343797: Microsoft 365 compliance center: Announcing data purge capabilities for Microsoft Teams content

Affected workloads

  • Microsoft 365 suite

When this will happen

Rollout will begin in late March and is expected to be complete by late July (previously late April).

How this will affect your organization

Data spillage occurs when a confidential document is released into an untrusted environment. An eDiscovery case provides an effective way to manage data spillage investigations, so you can quickly assess the size and locations of the spillage, examine user activities around it, and then permanently purge the spilled data from the system.

With this update, you will be able to include Teams content in the scope of the data purge.

Note: Data purge can’t delete items in a review set in eDiscovery (Premium) because the review set contains copies of items in the live service that are stored in an Azure Storage location. To delete items in a review set, you have to delete the eDiscovery (Premium) case that contains the review set. The purge signal will be available via the eDiscovery (Premium) Graph APIs, currently in public preview.

For more information, see Close or delete an Advanced eDiscovery (Premium) case.
