Links expiration value

Silver Contributor

In the OneDrive Admin Center, I have noticed that the "Links expire within" value, under "Anonymous access links", is set to 0 in some tenants, while is set to "Never" in others.

Are the two values equivalent?

Yes, those should be equivalent. 


My guess is that it's a bug around tenants that have never set the policy vs. tenants that have set it and then turned it off. 


Are you seeing this in ODB admin and SPO admin? Or just one? Thanks!

Hi @Stephen Rice.

Thanks for your answer.

I am seeing this in ODFB admin center. In SPO admin center, instead, it is empty (i.e. no value is shown)

BTW, I think you are right: the value is "Never" for tenants where it has never been touched, and 0 in tenants where it has been turned on and subsequently off.

Thanks for confirming. We've got some sharing page updates we're working on for ODB admin so I'll add this to the list of work. Thanks!
