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

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

Question

Why is it that, after migrating a list with versioning enabled using the Import 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 Import Pipeline

Question

Why is it that, after a migration using the Import 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.

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.
