Increase or release the limit for the policy with specific inclusions or exclusions
I would request you to increase or release the limit on the number of mailboxes for the retention policy with specific inclusions or exclusions. When we create a policy with specific inclusions or exclusions for the retention policy in SCC, we can apply the policy up to 1,000 mailboxes. However, this limit would be a big burden for enterprises in terms of the tenant management as they have a huge number of users.
Referenced the article below, https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/compliance/retention-policies?view=o365-worldwide#a-policy-with-specific-inclusions-or-exclusions
Got this back from MS Support on the subject on 10 Feb 2020:
"Further to my previous message there are unfortunately no plans to increase the inclusion/exclusion limit for retention policies."
Hi, instead of raising the limit, can you just simply enable the option to work with a Dynamic Security work? that way members of that group can inherited the exclusion.
Indeed we need these limits raised please. Today everything is a Group or a Site Collection of its own. Nested sites are not recommended as well, so please make these limits more practical.
On a side note, I am quickly running out of votes here as Microsoft insists on adding stuff nobody asked for but fails to fix stuff that is desperately needed. Please listen to your communicty or disband the site altogether.
A retention policy for specific inclusions / exclusions can contain no more than 1,000 mailboxes and 100 site collections. A tenant can contain no more than 10,000 retention policies. Our organizational entities are more than the limits, which blocks us from using this feature. See: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/compliance/retention-policies
