Hi.


How can I keep my chat history before I delete a channel? (In a text file)

The audit log feature can only be obtained by team.

I also tried Microsoft Graph, but I found it difficult to get all the replies as well.

 

Please let me know if there is a better way.

Thanks.

Hello.
Thank you for your answer!
I'll try that right away!
I tried it immediately, but it was unable to identify the channel conversation.
Is there a better way to do this?
Hi, this is the only way as the chats are really handled in "Azure chat service" and only ingested into the respective user's mailboxes (chats) and group mailboxes (channel conversations) for compliance reasons. You can't extract, copy or move data as it doesn't work that way. You need the licensing and permissions for the Teams content search. It's all detailed in the Microsoft docs.
