- Following the release of this new connector last month, we made improvements to batching mechanics while adding a retry for failed items in a batch. This has increased throughput using this specific connector by 50%.
- We’ve also improved error messaging around invalid labels and how to workaround using folder mapping.
- Teams Migration – Mapping Renamed Folders
- Teams Channels or groups have been renamed, but in Teams (and SharePoint), the Display Name is changed, not the actual MailNickName (the username in the team SMTP address). When a Teams migration is run, the migration creates the Team and the Teams Channel with the new name, but the Files are being migrated as a SharePoint site, which gets put under the old name.
- The renamed channels need individual mapping commands to move channel files into the correct location during the migration process.
- Add the foldermapping commands to the Support Options section of the Advanced Options.
- E.g. FolderMapping=”^TeamA/Shared Documents/Oldname->TeamA/Shared Documents/Newname”
Note: Enter the correct information for each team mailnickname and channel name in place of “TeamA”, “Oldname”, and “Newname” in the example.
