At this time, if an external sharing link is shared within a Teams private channel, ShareGate will not be able to detect that link. This external sharing link will not display in ShareGate Management.
A Teams private channel provides a focused space for collaborative work among a select group of people. Only members of private channels can see and participate in the private channels they are a part of. Due to the security settings of a Teams private channel, Microsoft does not allow for crawling and external sharing link detection in these private spaces.
At the moment, external sharing links shared in private channels will not be detected when ShareGate crawls your environment.
For links to be detected, links can be shared with external users (i.e. people outside of your organization):
- Directly from SharePoint.
- Through Teams channels that are not private.
- By email.
Note: The link must be created using the Anyone with the link option.
