Syntax

Request-SPOUpgradeEvaluationSite
       [-Confirm]

Description

The Request-SPOUpgradeEvaluationSite cmdlet lets the SharePoint Online global administrator request a copy of an existing site collection for the purposes of validating the effects of upgrade without affecting the original site.

A request for an upgrade evaluation site is not automatically processed. Instead, it is scheduled to occur on the background when it causes the least effect on the service.

You must be a SharePoint Online global administrator to run the cmdlet.
