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.
