Exporting Site Collection Mapping

To export site collection mapping into comma-separated values (CSV) file for analytics or archival purposes open Site Collections and click Export.

Output CSV file will contain mapping data for discovered and matched (migrated) site collection URLs.

Migrating Sites

Double-check that the account migration is finished (or at least that all SharePoint users are migrated) and create the Migration task:

  1. Open Site Collections and select the items you want to migrate.

TIP: Use search and filtering to quickly navigate through the list of site collections.

  1. Click Migrate.
  1. Provide the target account (FQDN) that will be used as the default owner (if the actual owner is not found.) The value set in the task is preferred over the project setting.
    By default, this filed is already populated with the default target user configured on the project level.
  1. Specify whether child entities are migrated. By default, the entire collection stricture is migrated.
  2. Specify whether the existing target sites are cleaned up (all exciting content removed) before migration.

Caution: If this option is selected, all content of the target site is removed and replaced by source site's content! Use with extreme caution.

  1. Schedule when the task will be started. See Task Scheduling for details.
  1. Click Next to view the task summary. Name the task and check selected options. Click Finish to save or start the task depending on schedule option selected.

The migration task is created. You can track its progress in the Tasks, view the summary on the Dashboard or monitor alerts and notifications in the Events.

Microsoft Teams Migration

On Demand Migration for Teams securely migrates Microsoft Teams across Office 365 tenants. Microsoft Teams migration requires additional licensing.

IMPORTANT: Before migrating any Teams sites, you must ensure all accounts exist in the target tenant. Account Migration project for your source and target tenant should exists, and account matching /migration should be completed.

Basic Microsoft Teams migration workflow consists of the following steps:

# Step
Create Microsoft Teams migration project
Grant necessary permissions in case these permissions are not already granted

Discover teams on the source tenant

On this step you can see names, suggested for target teams. In case you need some changes use manual mapping as described below. There are no provision on the target on this step.

Export teams mapping to CSV file

Map teams manually using prepared CSV file

You can use manual mapping to migrate source team to the target team with another name. If the channel do not exist, it will be provisioned. Also you can use manual mapping to merge several source teams to one target team.

Create Office 365 groups and Provision teams on the target tenant

Migrate teams

Migrate / merge all conversations (including inline content) from the source to target channels.

Automatically migrate associated files

All files, associated with selected teams are transferred to the channels. If the channel do not exist, it will be provisioned.

Monitor the progress and track issues
