Hi. My name is Ghazwan Khairi, systems consultant for Dell Software. Today I'll be walking you through a migration of a Sharepoint 2010 list to Sharepoint 2013. We're going to be using Migration Suite for Sharepoint, and the first thing we need to do with Migration Suite for Sharepoint is connect to the various source and target sites. To do so, you basically go to your source site.
So in my case, I'll go to my marketing windows reporter site, and basically the first thing you do is you say I want to connect to the site. Obviously your navigator will be empty. So what you do is you plug in a label for the site you want to connect to, plug in the address of that site. You click on finish. Product will authenticate you to that site. If it's the first time, it may even ask you for your login password.
So you need to have full access to the site, or designer access just to connect to it, and then you'll see that we have all the different links, or all the different attributes and artifacts for that site appear to us right here on the left hand side. We do that for source and target sites. And then to migrate content, one of the fastest ways to do so is simply right click on that list or library.
So here I am, I right click on my Sharepoint or reporter supported platforms, which happens to be a list. If I navigate over to the source site, this is going to be our target. Let's go over to the source site. So reporter supported platforms, it's just a custom list with a product name, platform name, and whether it's supported, yes or no. So again, we just right click, copied it.
And then we'll go to our target site, which will be our Sharepoint 2013 site. Again, connect to it the exact same way. If it's the first time you're connecting to it, label address and connect [? sys ?] to it. This reads the topology of the site. You don't have to that. I'm just doing that so I show you how we connect to it. You have to do it once only. And then we'll right click on our target site, and we'll go ahead and paste our list.
We have options to choose from, whether we want to copy the content types, the content itself. Because you may be only interested in the list structure. But it is an option to copy the content, obviously, as well. List copy, list permissions, views, workflows, info path, et cetera. There are some advanced options for filtering options, things like that. And then we'll go ahead and click Finish to migrate this list from 2010 to 2013.
And it's copying content, copying permissions. It's done. Took about five seconds to process. And here's the outcome of the log itself. Let's switch over to our Sharepoint 2010 site, and let's go to the site content, because we did just create a reporter supported platforms, which is new, and here's everything that we just copied right now. So this is a migration of a list from Sharepoint 2010 to Sharepoint 2013. Thanks for listening in.
