MC394511: Microsoft Purview: eDiscovery (Premium and Standard) – Jobs limit update

Beginning in July 2022, we are making changes to jobs-related limits enforced in eDiscovery (Premium and Standard) solutions to give your organization’s eDiscovery administrators and managers greater flexibility on how jobs are run and what types of jobs can be run at the same time. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 85583.

We’ve revised the scope of this jobs queue feature update to focus on jobs limit. The eDiscovery (Standard and Premium) jobs limit will be updated to provide users with better clarity on operational limit across the tenant. With simplified fewer jobs related limit, users will have better flexibility in managing these limits and how they are shared among different job types across the eDiscovery workflow.

MC394511: Microsoft Purview: eDiscovery (Premium and Standard) - Jobs limit update

When this will happen

Rollout will begin in early July and is expected to be complete by late July.

How this will affect your organization

With the introduction of new features to our eDiscovery services over the past few years, various limits have been introduced as a way to ensure resources are properly allocated and service stability can be maintained–this includes a range of jobs-related limits. In an effort to make these limits easier for users to understand and track, we are simplifying jobs-related limits in both eDiscovery Premium and Standard as outlined in the following table.

eDiscovery Premium Max per tenant Max per user
Concurrent jobs limit (any jobs) 100 50
Concurrent limit (tenant wide jobs) 50 25
eDiscovery Standard Max per tenant Max per user
Concurrent jobs limit (any jobs) 50 25
Concurrent jobs limit (tenant wide jobs) 5 5
Maximum number of jobs limit per day 500
Maximum size limit per day 2 TB

* eDiscovery (Premium) jobs count towards eDiscovery (Standard) limit but not the other way around. I.e. If you have 50 jobs running in Premium, then you won’t have room to start any Standard jobs until 1 or more of these jobs are completed.

This set of limits updates it not likely to significantly affect your organization’s eDiscovery workflow; the simplified jobs level limits either maintain the original limit set forth or increase flexibility by removing the specific job type associated with the limit.

What you need to do to prepare

Assess whether the changes will change your organization’s eDiscovery workflow. If so, update internal documentation. Provide training to all eDiscovery users in your organization and update relevant documentation if needed.
