  1. SPMT : add support for SharePoint 2019

    SPMT has been extend to SharePoint 2016, it will be be nice to also extend to SharePoint 2019.

  2. SPMT - NTFS Owner should map to Sharepoint Owner

    When migrating from file share to Sharepoint with SPMT the "Modified By" and "Created By" fields are always set to "System Account" and the Owner defaults to the Owner of the Site.

    The information of who originally made the file/folder, which is usually the NTFS "Owner", gets lost in transition.

    I propose that the NTFS "Owner" should be mappable to an Azure AD user which populates the "Created By" field, optionally the "Modified By" field, as well as the Sharepoint Owner of the corresponding file/folder.

    Additionally, when viewing a Sharepoint folder in Windows Explorer via. the OneDrive client, "Modified By"…

  3. SPMT tool is not retaining folder permission sharepoint online post migration.

    SPMT tool is not retaining folder permission in sharepoint online post migration. A User/users added with FULL permission on local folder when synced to sharepoint online it does not retain the permission. User/Users with Modify permission and R/W permission are getting retained as is in sharepoint online. Please look in to this issue.

  4. Map the default groups in SharePoint

    Map the default groups in SharePoint

    Right now you can map AD users/groups manually through a CSV but it doesn't apply to SharePoint groups.

    The problem comes with default groups when migrating to a site collection already created at the destination. At the end of the migration, 6 default groups are available: the 3 source groups and the 3 destination groups.

    The problem is even greater if we want to keep the permissions since the tool breaks inheritance in all the lists/libraries due to
    The source Visitors group is different from the destination Visitors group
    The source group of Members…

  5. Sharepoint Migration Manager (Preview) - Add option to Schedule a start time

    I know it's in preview, but if you could add the option to Schedule a start time from within Migration Manager like Exchange Migration that would be awesome and help with throttling as we could configure a Out of Hours Start time!

  6. Allow a user using the SPMT tool to select what site template to use when creating a new site.

    Currently when SPMT creates a new site it only does a Modern site no groups. It would be beneficial to have the tool give an option of what site you would like to create. Example sometimes I might want a communication site. In order to do this today I have to first create the site in SPO then use the SPMT tool to set that as my destination. It might be good to have a few choices to pick from or let the user build a site template mapping file.

  7. Remote Blob Storage in Azure Storage Account (BLOB) storage For SP2016/2019/O365

    Basically create an add-in / configuration element in CA in 2016 / 2019 that enables a Farm Administrator to select a single or multiple Azure Storage Account blobs to operate as Remote Blob Storage, and conversely support this ability in O365. Then for migration you would leverage the migration tool to migrate list data and metadata for documents - but just reference documents in azure storage -- for lots of my customers that would greatly simplify migration - you could create multiple blob storage accounts which could all be loaded independently - or we could figure out a way to…

  8. Don't immediately begin migration of files upon resuming a scan only session

    Don't immediately begin migration of files upon resuming a scan only session. I had a scan only session running for 175 shares that crashed the SPMT. Upon restarting and resuming the migration, the tool began actually migrating the files when I only wanted to scan them.

  9. permission

    SharePoint Migration tool does not migration Full permission from File share to "Full Control" permission level in SharePoint Online. The mapping of Full permission to contribute is not a correct scenario because it does not provide Share folder permissions. This is a serious flaw. We hope there is a workaround or fix very soon.

  10. SPMT: not hidden files in hidden folders

    It would be nice to have an option to ignore not just hidden files/folders but everything inside a hidden folder.
    Now if I not check migrate hidden, then every non-hidden files under a hidden folder will generate an error "parent folder not migrated".

  11. SPMT: Parameter to ignore content types

    When we migrate from a document library with specific content types to Microsoft Teams, we want be able to set the content type to the default content type of Microsoft Teams instead of migrating to original content type of the source.
    So there should be either a possibility to set the mapping of content type or ignore the source content type and set the default content type of the destination.

  13. Copy a Library doesn't have option "Replace All"

    When you copy a library from one site to another, you don't have an option to "Replace All".

    This negates the ability to run incremental changes from one site to another.

    I have 2 sites, "site A" is for upload and "site B" site is the live/pilot site. This approach is so I can re-arrange the content from an on-site fileshare to Office 365.

    I am aware that if I conduct a move instead of a copy the "Replace All" option is available. This isn't useful though, because moving the files means that any on-site changes would require a full…

  14. Migration Manager fails to upload a fileshare folder, only contents of the folder

    Migration Manager should operate the same as SPMT.

    If you use SPMT to upload a fileshare (eg \server\shares\administration) to a "library A", the result will be a folder called administration in the library.

    If you use exactly the same definition in Migration Manager only the contents of administration will be migrated, not the folder itself.

    This shortcoming, makes it very difficult to re-arrange the generally archaic fileshare structure into a more intuitive structure in SharePoint.

    Microsoft answer is "well use SPMT". This is not a suitable answer because Migration Manager provides a more central view of your migration project, and…

  17. Allow sorting of saved migrations

    Saved migration sessions appear to be displayed in a random order, not by name or by date.

    Some control of how they are sorted and some searching would be useful

  18. Sharepoint Migration tool folder exclusion

    Hi,

    it would be great if you could add a parameter, wether on the GUI tool or in powershell to exclude certain subfolders from migration from source.

    lets say i want to migration c:\IT folder to https://mysharepoint.ms.com/IT , but i do not want to migrate c:\IT\ThisFolder\ because it is full of data i do not need to migrate. I guess it should be super easy to do since there is already file exclusion...

    Thanks
