Item Count at Target is Increased When Migrating Using the Azure Pipeline

Question

Why is it that, after migrating a list with versioning enabled using the Azure Pipeline, there are more items on the target than on the source?

Increased Items on Target

Answer

If you are migrating a batch that includes a list with a base type of CustomList (such as Announcements), versioning is enabled, and Content Matrix has had to resubmit the batch that includes the list, duplicate items may be migrated to the target.  By default, these types of lists are excluded from resubmissions, but can be included via the environmentsettings.xml key RetryBatchForCustomListWithVersions.

NOTE:  If custom lists are excluded from batch resubmissions and all items are not successfully migrated, you can migrate any outstanding items using incremental migration.

Custom Lists with Versioning Enabled Not Being Migrated When Using the Azure Pipeline

Question

Why is it that, after a migration using the Azure Pipeline, some lists with versioning enabled do not appear on the target?

Answer

By default, lists with a base type of CustomList (such as Announcements) are excluded when Content Matrix must resubmit a batch that initially failed to migrate in its entirety (because if they are included, duplicate items may be migrated to the target).   These types of lists can be included via the environmentsettings.xml key RetryBatchForCustomListWithVersions)

NOTE:  If custom lists are excluded from batch resubmissions and all items are not successfully migrated, you can migrate any outstanding items using incremental migration.

Supported Nintex Actions for SPO Migration

Question

What are the supported Nintex actions that are available when migrating from SharePoint On-Premises to SharePoint Online?

Answer

The following table lists the supported Nintex actions that are available when migrating from SharePoint On-Premises to SharePoint Online.

NOTE: The following actions are supported, but not all their parameters will necessarily have a SharePoint Online equivalent. Make sure to review migrated Nintex workflows to ensure that they migrated as expected. Also ensure that actions requiring user interaction (such as Assign Flexi Task, Send Notification, etc.) have user mappings properly configured during migration.

"Insufficient Credentials" Message Connecting to Modern Team Site Using Web Browser Authentication

Question

While trying to make a connection to an O365 modern team site using Web Browser authentication, or when trying to load it in the Console after successfully making a tenant-level connection using Web Browser authentication, a Login Browser popped up with the message You need permission to access this site.  Why?

Modern Team Site Perms Error

Answer

When using Web Browser Authentication, the login account must be a Site Collection Administrator (Site Owner).  You can either:

·make sure the account you are using to connect is a Site Collection Administrator

OR

·use Office 365 ADFS authentication to connect.
