The current migration experience is suboptimal, at best. The good news is they are working on a better method that will leverage the google APIs and will not require you to use passwords for each user. But it's still in development: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=&searchterms=43782

hi @vasil good to hear that but 2019 Q2 is quite far.

Going back to question, can we use default user password only in google IMAP migration to Exchange Online?

thanks
