List Item Settings 

To specify the action to be taken by XPlica when a list item with the same value already exists in the destination location:

1. The List Item Settings step appears as shown below:

2.

Specify the action to be taken when migrating list items to destination as below:

  1. Migrate all source list items  -Select this option to migrate all list items to the target list.
  2. Replace list items in target list if it already exists (overwrite) - Deletes the list item from the destination location (along with its version history) and migrates the source list item including versions.
  3. Skip list items in target list if it already exists - Skips the list item, if the source list item is found in the destination location (based on Reference Template settings).
  4. Merge source and target list items (adds as new version, if versioning is enabled) - The source list items will be merged with the target list items during migration. If the list items already exist in the target list (as per Reference Template setting), the source list items will be added as new version of the list items, if list versioning is enabled. If list versioning is disabled, the source list items will replace the old ones in the target list during migration.

Note:For options (d), the behavior is as follows:

  • If versioning is enabled in target list,

    1. XPlica migrates the newly created list item, if it is not available in target.
    2. If the list item already exists in target, then XPlica adds the newly updated items as versions to the already available list item in target.
  • If versioning is disabled in target list,
    1. XPlica migrates the newly created list item, if it is not available in target.
    2. If the list item already exists in target, then XPlica overwrites the already available list item with the newly updated item in target.

 

3. Select the Reference Column template which you have created using XPlica Template Manager. Click Manage Templates button to open the XPlica Template Manager.
4. Specify list item attachment option as below
  1. As in SharePoint source - XPlica will migrate the list item attachment as available in the source SharePoint list. .
  2. Do not migrate attachments - XPlica will skip the attachments from migration process.
If the list item attachment already exists in destination location, you can specify an alternate file name. To select an alternate file naming mask, click the button placed next to the alternate file tag name textbox. Alternate file name mask dialog will appear as shown below:

Construct alternate file naming mask using the available mask provided in the dialog. Click OK to close the dialog. The constructed alternate file name mask will be placed in alternate file naming mask textbox. If duplicate of attachments occur, list item attachments will be migrated with the alternate naming mask as their names.

Note: If XPlica Server Agent is not installed in destination SharePoint server farm, you may notice an increase in version number for a list item, when an attachment is included in the list item. Hence, please ensure XPlica Server Agent is installed in the destination SharePoint farm as per the system requirements.
