Hi. My name is Ghazwan Khairi, systems consultant for Dell Software. Today I'll be walking you through a migration of a file or an item from SharePoint 2007 Document Library directly to SharePoint 2013. You're looking at the migration suite for SharePoint interface on my navigation screen. I've navigated over to my 2007 and to my 2013 sites. And to do so, it's fairly straightforward.
You basically click on connect to a site. You give your site a label. You input the address of the site. You click on finish. This goes out to the site, and it reads the topology of the site. You do that for your source and target sites. So you can easily navigate to and from them on the interface. Next I'm going to navigate over to a document library. So we're going to go to my frequently asked questions.
Double click it, which if I go directly to SharePoint 2007, let's go to my collaborations site, frequently asked questions. So this is the document library that I just navigated to, directly from my migration suite. And then we'll be migrating over to our 2013 marketing site. And we'll be writing our content into our document's document library, which currently is empty.
So if I again go directly to SharePoint 2013, here's the site. Go to my documents, document library, you'll see that the document library is empty. So let's migrate a couple of these items across to SharePoint 2013. So to do so, the fastest ways to migrate items specifically is to simply select the items you want to migrate. So let's say I'll select a couple of these items.
Keep in mind you can filter, so you don't have to migrate everything across. You can filter and say I only am interested in PDFs, or files that have been modified after a specific date. Again, if the scope here is a granular item level migration. Again, you will highlight your content. The fastest ways to migrate content is to simply drag it and drop it. You could right click in here, copy, then go to the target, right click and paste.
I'm going to simply drag and drop. The Migration Wizard opens up, tells you this is where you're migrating to. Now we are going to leverage whatever content types we have on the target. In this case, this document's document library only has a document content type. If it had more than one, you'd be able to see them right through here.
And as you select your content types, the different attributes for that content type will appear to you on the screen. So we're going to choose document content type. We're going to take the defaults, because the name is going to map to name. Title is going to map to title. We can change that behavior right through here. We're going to click Next. Now, there are some advanced options for us to choose from.
Whether if you want overwrite if the file exists. You want to copy permissions. If we had a folder structure, you'd want to get rid of it. Things like that. And then we're going to go ahead and click finish to migrate the content, although we can also run different types of migrations, such as scripted migrations, CSV file type migrations, and things like that. We'll go ahead and click Finish.
And as you can see, this process, the couple of items. Here's the log file. We processed a couple of items. Let's switch over to the target receiving end, and let's go ahead and refresh. We should see a couple of documents in here. Notice the modified by, the fact that it was modified, not right now, four days ago. That's when it was modified on the source. That is all copied across as well. So it's a full fidelity item level migration.
