delete content from content search through gui not using New-ComplianceSearchAction
Currently users with the ediscovery role can run search for content and download that content. Using the New-ComplianceSearchAction -purge -softdelete you can delete this content (which we use for deleting spam or malware emails out of mailboxes). We do not want our security operations team to use powershell to complete these deletes so we have to write a gui to provide this functionality. Please enable the ability to complete deletes within the SCC itself
Check out the Data Investigations capability in preview now.
@NickRobinson Just tried it. That is a full investigations tool ie for a Legal, Compliance, or HR department. I do not see any way to delete the emails discovered. We need something that allows for the quick and simple location and deletion of malicious or virus emails. The idea behind this is to remove emails from mailboxes before staff open the email or to limit damage to corporate systems
The security and compliance search can only delete 10 emails at a time. Its a complete joke that this method even exists and is explicity recommended by MS for dealing with compromised accounts. When I have a compromised account it sends hundreds of emails, not up to 10. What another MS joke of a function.

Completely agree - after customers starting to exercise their 'Right to be forgotten' under GDPR regulations, searching for and purging email exchanges is going to become a daily task. I cannot understand why this isn't possible in the GUI. Please add this functionality to the GUI ASAP as powershell is not really a great solution for our O365 exchange admins

the reason I need this is because I have never received any powershell scripting training and do not know how to do that. Having this other available option would be incredibly helpful.

I bet Microsoft builds these parts of the O365 in PowerShell first basically, and the GUI comes in secondary port of the PowerShell back-end.

Agree completely. It should not require a ton of time to respond to an email threat. By not providing proper tools Microsoft is hindering threat mitigation. The Admin consoles have great potential. Developers also need to implement better search and export features. Public Sector email records requests are much more time consuming than using on-prem dedicated mail archiving. Additionally, forcing the use of Edge to export to PST should be eliminated
It is ridiculous that Microsoft would force basic functions to be performed in powershell and use boolean terms. Other vendors offer full featured GUI for administration. For all the hype about moving to O365, it seems that doing so complicates managability and requires adding staff. So much for microsoft providing a complete solution

Delete content from content search through gui not using New-ComplianceSearchAction, this would be a welcome feature. Please consider.
