Access your Migration Report
Once your Migration Report begins to run, it can be accessed at any time through the All Tasks menu.
- Click All Tasks in bottom-left menu.
- Click Filter

- As your report is loading, you can load new results and scroll through those already completed.
- Click your Migration report.
Understanding your Migration Report
If you access your Migration while it is still loading, you will notice a blue bar that allows you to Load new results as they come in. You can click on this for live updates on you report progress.
If you want to access details on the site or object, click on the title in the Title column.
Press Refresh to access a summary of your results at the bottom of the table once the results are all loaded.
When available, you can access this site for self-service on the issue. Just not the description of the issue on the Details column and click Help me solve this on the Help links column.
You can export your results as an Excel or CSV file by clicking the Export button, and saving the file to your preferred location.
Understanding Warnings and Errors
When running a large migration, it is normal to see many warnings and errors as your results load.
When you get an indication to Show item-level filter option to display the details, you need to click on Filter, and check the Show Item-Level in the Options section to see details regarding errors or warnings on list items and documents.
A warning indicates that your item type was successfully migrated to the destination, but a modification needed to occur to get it there, or something needed to be left out. A common example is a list that migrates successfully without a source field, because that field is not supported in the destination environment.
When warnings occur, it is almost always because something is not supported between versions, and the best solution is to manually create a substitute in your destination environment.
An error indicates that Sharegate was not able to migrate the item type to the destination. Errors can be complex, and always have associated error codes and articles to help you work through why the error occured and indicate if there is a solution or workaround. You need to click the provided Help me solve this link to access the articles.
