Creating an eDiscovery case
Think of an eDiscovery case as a container for an investigation or search for content related to a specific inquiry. Perhaps the legal team requires access to search all content in the environment related to a user—an eDiscovery case would be a way to containerize the scope of their search and provide them access. You may also be asked to investigate a user's inbox or a specific site, placing a hold on it first with an eDiscovery case. In this recipe, we'll create an eDiscovery case to provide specific people access to review specific content related to a fictional investigation.
You should be a global, compliance, or eDiscovery administrator or an eDiscovery manager to complete this recipe.
