How to move channels from one team to another that is lacking some members?

Currently it appears that moving channels from one team to another when some team members are absent from the destination team is not possible.

Is there a way to override this or somehow work around this without altering team memberships?

Hi, @ylluminate

You are right on the fact that the mattermost channel move performs that check based on the documentation even for mmctl as well:

The command validates that all users in the channel belong to the target team

Is there any particular reason to override the check? At the back of my head, I would think that the feature is there to prevent messages from being lost when 1 or more of the account doesn’t exist in the target team, which could lead to audit / security concerns.
