  2. Check these objects.
  3. Click Migrate. See also Migrate.

List objects: warnings and errors

To see the number of list items on the source

  1. Highlight the list object to see the details pane on the right.
  2. The details pane provides a count of the number of the list items for this list on the source.

Repair using granular migration

From the SharePoint contents tab

  1. Locate the list objects that did not migrate.
  2. Check these objects.
  3. Click Migrate. See also Migrate.

Incremental migration of lists

The On Demand Migration for SharePoint service can migrate new and updated list items in previously migrated lists with the content state migrated. See Object and content states.

NOTE: Incremental migration of system libraries like Site Pages is not supported. These libraries are always fully re-migrated. See Merging and Re-Migration Considerations.

To trigger an incremental migration of a SharePoint list:

  1. Open the SharePoint contents tab and locate the SharePoint list. There are a couple ways to do this:
    1. Add a filter to show only objects of type list.
    2. Add a filter to show only lists with content state migrated.
  2. Select the list. You can check multiple lists to migrate multiple lists.
  3. Click MIGRATE

Matching Sites

Your target tenant might already host top-level sites (site collections) created before the migration. To ensure that no data is lost or duplicated, map them to the corresponding source site collections with theMatching Task:

  1. Go to the migration project Dashboard.
  2. Click SharePoint widget.
  3. Open SharePoint Contents.
  4. Select the site you want to match and click Match.

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

  1. Enable the Include site content option to also match discovered child objects on the source with the corresponding object on the target, if it exists.
  2. By default, the matching is performed based on the URLs. Use manual mapping to match with a different criteria. Click Next to proceed.
  3. Schedule when the task will be started. See Task Scheduling for details. Click Next to view the task summary.
  4. Check selected options, scheduled start of the task and name the task. Click Finish to save or start the task depending on schedule option selected.

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

Refer to the Considerations for details on processing behavior if the target site/subsite exists before the migration is started.
