2023-11-03MC prepareYou don't need to do anything to enable this change. If you want to prevent more Loop workspaces from being created in your tenant, you have the option to proactively disable Loop workspaces in your organization using an admin setting. We recommend you also verify that the Loop admin setting is in the state you desire (i.e. "Enabled", granting access to Loop workspaces, or "Disabled", blocking access).
[How you can see storage consumption of Loop workspaces:]

Starting in late October or early November, admins will be able to connect to SPO PowerShell to enumerate all Loop workspaces and view storage used by individual Loop workspace by following these steps.
1. Run Get-SPOApplication
This command will return the Owning Application Id and Application Name associated with Loop.
2. Run Get-SPOContainer -OwningApplicationId <OwningApplicationID> | FT

Input OwningApplicationID for the Loop app obtained in Step #1.
This command will return all the Loop workspaces created in the tenant.
3. Run Get-SPOContainer -OwningApplicationId <OwningApplicationID> -Identity <ContainerID>

Input OwningApplicationID for the Loop app obtained in Step #1
Input ContainerID of the workspace obtained in Step #2
This command will return StorageUsedInBytes along with other details of the workspace.

[How you can see storage consumption of Loop workspaces:]

Admins can connect to SPO PowerShell to enumerate all Loop workspaces and view storage used by individual Loop workspace by following these steps.
Install the latest version of SharePoint PowerShell 16.0.24211.12000. More details on how to download the latest version are here: SharePoint Online Management Shell
In PowerShell, connect to SPO Service as an admin using the cmdlet Connect-SPOService. More details on how to connect to SPO Service here: Connect-SPOService
Run Get-SPOContainer -OwningApplicationID a187e399-0c36-4b98-8f04-1edc167a0996 |FT
Here OwningApplicationID for the Loop app is a187e399-0c36-4b98-8f04-1edc167a0996
This command will return all the Loop workspaces created in the tenant. The columns returned are: ContainerId, ContainerName, CreatedOn, Status
Run Get-SPOContainer -OwningApplicationID a187e399-0c36-4b98-8f04-1edc167a0996 -Identity <ContainerID>
Identity is the containerID of a loop workspace that can be obtained through Step #3.
Example of the cmdlet: Get-SPOContainer -OwningApplicationID a187e399-0c36-4b98-8f04-1edc167a0996 -Identity b!hYyLtuvBGkOkmPs2XS6M8Ze9qFLeBatJm6VlOkQtlIPFSGYInXlhRaaeu1MVGsp9
Identity can also be the SiteURL of the loop workspace that admins may encounter in Microsoft Purview. To view the details of the container admins can also use the SiteURL of the container.
Example of the cmdlet: Get-SPOContainer -OwningApplicationID a187e399-0c36-4b98-8f04-1edc167a0996 -Identity https://contoso.sharepoint.com/contentstorage/CSP_b68b8c85-c1eb-431a-a498-fb365d2e8cf1
This command will return details of the workspace along with Storage used. Here is the description of each value returned from Loop's context
ContainerId: ID of the Loop workspace
ContainerName: Name of the Loop workspace
Description: Description of the Loop workspace
OwningApplicationId: Application ID of Loop Application
Please note: This field currently returns a 00000000-0000-0000-0000-000000000000 for Loop. This will be fixed to return the right Loop Application ID: a187e399-0c36-4b98-8f04-1edc167a0996 soon. There is no impact on the functioning of the cmdlets.
OwningApplicationName: Loop
ContainerApiUrl: Graph API URL of the workspace
ContainerSiteUrl: Site URL of the workspace
SensitivityLabel: Sensitivity Label ID of the label applied on the workspace
Owners: Email-Ids of the individuals in owner roles for the workspace
Managers: Email-Ids of the individuals in manager roles for the workspace
Readers: Email-Ids of the individuals in reader roles for the workspace
Writers: Email-Ids of the individuals in writer roles for the workspace
CreatedOn : Date the workspace was created on
StorageUsedInBytes: Storage (in Bytes) used by the workspace
