Migration Assessment Scan: Large Lists
Learn how to mitigate issues with Large Lists during migration.
Lists over 20,000 items have historically caused issues with the migration tooling, making the ability to predict the time it takes to migrate sites that contain a larger list to be problematic.
List data is migrated. However, the larger the list the more unpredictable the migration process has proven. Extremely large lists can result in an extended migration.
Any site that is configured as "No Access" (locked), in SharePoint will be skipped. To see a list of locked site collections see the Locked Sites scan output.
Preparing for Migration
Investigate the large lists and determine the need for this content to be migrated to the target environment.
The migration tooling has built-in validation to ensure all the list items are migrated. You will want to validate the large lists migrated as expected.
