eDiscovery & Administrative Management of Sways

I'm looking to confirm my understanding of current state and whether there are any future plans (known or documented in the Microsoft Roadmap) for the following regarding Sway (business, not consumer):



  • Sway activities are available in the Audit Log of the S&C
  • Sways are held in a blob storage in Azure, so are not stored in Exchange or SharePoint
  • Because Sways are not in the purview of Exchange or SharePoint, you cannot place them on eDiscovery holds or capture them in content searches
  • No PowerShell module exists that can manage Sways from a tenant admin perspective, like Whiteboard.
  • Additionally, because they are not stored in Exchange or SharePoint, and there is not a PowerShell module, you cannot transfer ownership of a Sway(s) to another user.

Thank you!
