    Is there an option to maintain the site collections in the destination, without having to convert them into subsites? Example, in my source, I have 10 site collections in that web application. I want to maintain those 10 site collections in the destination SharePoint. With these options, I only have the option to have one (1) site collection and 10 subsites.

    Hi Mel,

    I'm assuming you want to migrate 10 Site Collections at once. It that's the case, it can be done with the app.

    You'll have to connect to your central admin and select your web app with Copy structure to be able to migrate multiple Site Collections.

    You will have to do so with the source and destination. If your Destination is Office 365, connect to the admin center at the destination.

    Once connected, you will have a list of all your site collections in the source and destination. You can select multiple site collections by holding CTRL down and migrate them. You will also have access to all the same copy options.

    I hope this is what you were looking for.

    Have a great day.

    Do you have instructions on best way to migrate attachments? Have attempted a few times to migrate an Issue track list to SPO, but the attachments failed to migrate.

    Hi Andrea,

    Your attachments are migrated along your list items. Unfortunately, there is not much you can do to migrate them individually without migrating the items. There could be a few causes for your particular problem.

    I noticed you have a ticket open with our technical support team which is the best way to go about this issue.

    Hi Team


    Is there an option to disable persevering permission when importing using PowerShell?

    Hi Alvin,

    You can use the following switch in your script: -NoCustomPermissions

    If you want further information on the options you can use in PowerShell, you can find it in the Replicate Copy Options article in the PowerShell section of our help center.

    Best regards,

    Hi Vic

    Thanks for responding. Is it possible to use this using the Import-document command?

    Hi Alvin,

    You are very welcome.

    When copying content only (not using Copy-Site or Copy-List), you have to define a Property template in your script.

    You can find an example and more information in this article.

    There is a note under the example that is important. In this case, the moment you define a Property template in your script, you have to add the elements you wish to preserve. I you scroll down in the article you will find all the different parameters you can use.

    This will work with the Import-Document command.

    Is there a way to exclude wildcard matches within file or folder names?

    Hi Shane,

    Within ShareGate Desktop there is not option to exclude wildcard matches, but with Copy content you can use your SharePoint views to filter your content.

    I believe there is a way to filter with wildcard matches in a SharePoint list or library view.
