    • I have a need to take ownership of 1000 or so users.  For a OneDrive Migrations.  Is there a way to bulk add and then remove myself as co-owner to these SPO personal document repositories? 
    • Yes,
      You could this script as a foundation for a script where you read the ODFB sites you want to make the ownership from a CSV file for instance

    • Hi,
      Im a bit unsure what $sSPODFBRelativePath: ODFB Relative Path is reffering to. Are we supposed to type the path to onedrive
    • Hi,
      It refers to the path you need to add after https://<O365Domain>" that path identifies the specific ODFF user that has the form <O365User>_<Office365Domain>_onmicrosoft_com

    • Hi Juan
      Can you please tell me what would be entered for "sSPODFBRelativePath"?
      Is this the tenant one drive URL or the User onedrive?
    • That variable stores the ODFB site relative url for a user ODFB site
  • sSPOODFBHostUrl: SharePoint ODFB Host URL

    • also for "sSPOODFBHostUrl: SharePoint ODFB Host URL" is this the tenant sharepoint URL?
    • No, this variable stores the URL of the ODFB site where you want to add a secondary administator
    • Sorry, I didn't provide the right answer….this variable stores the Host URL for all the ODFB sites in your tenant

    • Thank you very much for the previous script.
      I would like to know how the script can be reversed, so that instead of creating secondary owners for Onedrive for Business, it would be able to give me a list of accounts in my organization sharepoint along with the primary owners and secondary owners (if any). 
      Thank you very much.
