Using Manual Mapping for Teams

In some cases, you might want to rename the teams on target or merge them with the existing teams with different names. To achieve this goal, provide a file with the custom mapping between source and target teams. You might use the exported team mapping as a template.

  1. Prepare a comma-separated values (CSV) file with the matched team pairs. The first row defines the names of the source and target attributes used for mapping. Subsequent rows list the matching values of these attributes (one pair per row.) For example:

Team Name, Target Team Name

Source Team A, Target Team C

Source Team B, Target Team D

NOTES:

  • You can merge multiple source teams to a single target team. Just provide the same target team name in a mapping file.
  • File names with non-ASCII characters are not supported.
  1. Open Teams tab and click Map from File.
    Do not select any teams from the list – you have already specified them in the file created on Step 1.
  2. Click Browse to open the mapping file created on Step 1.
  3. Browse for file and click Open. Selected file name appears next to the Browse button.
  1. Schedule when the task will be started. See Task Scheduling for details. Click Next to view task summary.
  2. Check selected options. Click Finish to save or start the task depending on schedule option selected.

The task is created. You can track the progress in the Tasks list or view the summary on the Dashboard.

NOTE: Source teams that are not discovered are ignored without producing an event.

 

Pre-Migration Assessment for Teams

On Demand Migration analyzes your environment and tracks potential problems, misconfiguration, and risks that might adversely affect the migration. Use Assessment view to see the summary reports on the discovered data and use the automatic filters to quickly select certain items.

The following reports are available for Teams:

  • Workflow - Teams sorted by completed workflow
    • Discovered
    • Processed
    • Migrated
  • Teams- Teams sorted by processing status
  • Idle
  • In progress
  • Needs your attention
  • Teams By Size
  • Teams By Last Activity Time
  • Teams By Channel Count
  • Teams By Member Count

Once you handle the issues, if any, go to List View screen. You are ready to start the migration.

Provisioning Teams for Target Tenant

After all source teams are discovered you can start to provision teams on the target tenant.

Provision task help you to perform the following:

  • Create Office 365 groups on the target tenant.
  • Provision teams to the target tenant.
  • Provision team membership and ownership for provisioned teams.

Make sure that all associated accounts are matched or migrated in account migration project and create the Provision task:

  1. Open Teams and select the teams to provision associated Office 365 group and teams on the target. Provisioned teams will be owned by target account matched with source owner. Membership will be also migrated. In case any matched account cannot be found on the target, this account cannot be processed and related event will be reported.

TIP: Use search, filtering or collections to quickly navigate through the list of teams.

  1. Click Provision.
  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.

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

  1. Click Migrate. Pay attention, files associated with the selected teams will be migrated as a separate System: Team Files Migration task, which will be created automatically when this task starts.
  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. Consider, additional content migration task will be also created automatically to transfer all associated content. You can track its progress in the Tasks, view the summary on the Dashboard or monitor alerts and notifications in the Events.

NOTE: Teams migration starts after completion of the associated automatic Team Files Migration task. It can take a while to migrate files depending on the total size.

Renaming and Merging Considerations

If the channel with the same name already exists on target, the source channel will be migrated to a new one with a name: <source team name> - <source channel name>.

Unique channel names remains unchanged.
