Announcing redirect of compliance solutions from legacy SCC portal to M365 compliance center

The Microsoft 365 compliance center provides easy access to the data and tools you need to manage your organization’s compliance needs. It is the recommended portal for compliance solutions.

We will soon begin redirecting users from the legacy Security & Compliance Center (SCC) portal to the Microsoft 365 compliance center for the following solutions: Audit log, Data loss prevention, Information governance, and Records management. This is a continuation of our migration to the Microsoft 365 compliance center; we began redirecting users there to access Advanced eDiscovery in September 2020 (MC223174).

When this will happen

Rollout will begin in mid-April and is expected to be complete by end of June 2021.

How this will affect your organization

Users accessing compliance solutions in the SCC portal will automatically be redirected to the appropriate solutions in the Microsoft 365 compliance center. This change enables users to view all compliance solutions within one portal, and delivers a modern user experience that conforms to the latest accessibility standards (WCAG 2.1). The Microsoft 365 compliance center also provides access to compliance solutions like Compliance Manager and new and incremental feature updates across compliance solution areas.

With automatic redirection turned on, users will be routed to the new portal when the following solutions are accessed:

  • Audit log
  • Data loss prevention
  • Information governance
  • Records management

All other capabilities will not be affected by redirection:  

  • Alerts
  • Homepage
  • Mailflow
  • Permissions
  • Settings
  • Security Solutions such as Office 365 Advanced Threat Protection

Note: this change only impacts the user interface; existing cmdlets and backend jobs will continue to run the same way.

What you need to do to prepare

Redirection is enabled by default.

Global admins and Compliance admins can enable or disable redirection in the Microsoft 365 compliance center by navigating to Settings > Compliance Center and using the Automatic redirection toggle switch under Portal redirection.

We will continue to innovate and add value to the solutions in the Microsoft 365 compliance center. Therefore we recommend transitioning your organization the solutions within the newer portal. Any future plans to take the legacy Security & Compliance Center portal offline will be communicated via Message Center.
