Mail Onboarding Manager for service-only organizations now available
  • With this release, IBM now supports migrations from a Notes/Domino on-premises and Exchange 2010/2013 on-premises servers to a service-only organization hosted in IBM Connections Cloud. For additional information, see Mail Onboarding Manager provisions new users.

Revoke a user who was previously provisioned using the Mail Onboarding Manager

  • Users who have been provisioned using the onboarding tool are listed on the tool's Complete page. While they are listed there, you cannot add subscriptions or resubmit the user for provisioning. With this release of the Mail Onboarding Manager, you can perform a revoke action from the Complete page of the onboarding tool. After the user has been revoked, you can add the user to a subsequent transfer group and re-provision the user at a later date. For additional information, see evoking a provisioned user (hybrid environment) or Revoking a provisioned user (service-only environment).
