This is an example for copying SharePoint list items while bringing over all their metadata, including version history, attachments, permissions, authors and timestamps between one SharePoint lists to another. You can apply this pattern to copy documents between one SharePoint library to another.
- Click Powershell from the app menu.
- Type Import-Module Sharegate.
- Connect to your source SharePoint site, this is the site that contains the list you want to copy content from (see Connect-Site).
$srcSite = Connect-Site -Url "http://myfarm1/sites/mysourcesite"
- Get your source list that you want to copy content from (see Get-List).
$srcList = Get-List -Site $srcSite -name "Documents"
- Connect to your destination SharePoint site, this is the site that contains the list you want to copy content to (see Connect-Site).
$dstSite = Connect-Site -Url "http://myfarm2/sites/mydestinationsite"
- Get your destination list that you want to copy content to (see Get-List).
$dstList = Get-List -Site $dstSite -name "Documents"
- Copy the content from source list to the destination list (see Copy-Content)
$result = Copy-Content -SourceList $srcList -DestinationList $dstList
- You can print the result in the windows or export the migration report to an Excel file (see Export-Report).
Export-Report -CopyResult $result -Path "C:\Reports\MyCopyListContentReports.xlsx"
