Sites, lists and folders can all be relocated, restructured or even redefined as different structures. Sites can be migrated to different site collections and lists can be migrated as folders or vice versa, as well as a number of other combinations.

For a comprehensive upgrade to e.g. SharePoint 2013 or SharePoint 2016, Tzunami Deployer takes advantage of site templates (both global and template galleries) as well as list templates. This provides users with total flexibility in designing the look-and-feel the new SharePoint environment.

Tzunami Deployer enables you to model your target SharePoint, into which the source content will eventually be migrated. You can model:

Structure – Create or modify site collections, sites, portal areas (SPS2003 only), libraries, lists and folders.
Metadata – Design the property sets and properties that comprise the columns of the target SharePoint lists.
Security and Permissions – Create or modify groups and permissions levels, add users and assign permissions.

Additional metadata, both out of the box and customized, can be simply migrated using the property and value mappings.

Security migration can be performed as part of the content migration, thus retaining users’ and groups’ permissions. Furthermore, security migration is possible for users from different domains, even between systems that are connected to different LDAP systems. When migrating content into SharePoint, Tzunami Deployer analyzes security permissions in the content sources and allows mapping of source users, roles, and permissions to corresponding SharePoint users, groups, roles and permissions in order to best match the existing settings.

Tzunami Deployer for SharePoint Migration provides a warning system to the user to handle “weak” restrictions appropriately.

With stronger restrictions, such as invalid naming and names length, Tzunami Deployer for SharePoint provides an automatic repair, which requires minimum user interaction.
