Hi. My name is Ghazwan Khairi, systems consultant for Dell Software. Today I'll be walking you through an item level migration from Sharepoint 2010 to Sharepoint 2013. So as you can see here on the navigation screen, I'm able to navigate to the various Sharepoint sites that I want to migrate from and to, so this is my Sharepoint 2010 site.
And that the way you connect to these sites is by simply clicking connect to a site to plug in a label for your site, the address of the site, then you click on Finish. This goes out to the topology of the site and it reads it. You do that for Sharepoint 2010 as well as Sharepoint 2013. So I'll go to my Sharepoint 2013 site, here's my marketing site. Again, plug in the address of the site and click on finish to connect to the site.
To migrate an item, what we now want to do is navigate over to that item. So let's collapse my Sharepoint 2013, expand my Sharepoint 2010, Reporter is the name of the site, and in Reporter there is a Reporter shared documents, there's a couple of documents in here. Let's highlight a couple of these documents to migrate them over.
We can run a filter to filter specifically what items we want to bring across, maybe based on date, based on extension type, things like that. So we're going to highlight a couple of these documents, and one of the easiest ways I like to use to migrate content is to simply drag the content and drop it onto your target. You can right click, copy, and then go to your target destination, right click, paste.
So I'm going to grab these and drop them on documents. So this is the receiving end, a document's document library. We're going to click Next. This is the metadata mapping screen. If this document library on Sharepoint 2013 has different and various content types, we'll be able to see them right here in the drop down. You select your content type, and then you'll see all the attributes for that content type.
And then you have the ability to map to these attributes, mix and match, or define whatever extra metadata you want to define as you bring the content across. And then on the next screen you have advanced options, such as removing folder structures if you had any, overwriting files, copying permissions, things like that.
Once you're done with your configurations, you can either generate a script to run the migration, generate a CSV file to batch more files and do both migrations, or click on Finish, which will, obviously you just grab the content from 2010 and put it on 2013. And it's done, completed, couple of items have been migrated across. Let's take a look at, this is our source site.
Let's go to our target site, site content, and we want to go into documents. And you notice that a couple of documents have been migrated now, and that these come way all the metadata associated with them. So the modification, the creation dates and identities will be preserved as well for us. So this is a migration of an item or a document from Sharepoint 2010 to Sharepoint 2013. Thanks for listening in.
