        IDs shoudl be preserved as part of migration. There might be custom code solutions expecting certain IDs.

        Preserve list item id after migration

        Most of the functionalities are based on the list item id, so after migration if list item changes , it is difficult to restore the same functionality again in target. It will be better if list item ids are preserved during migration.

        SegreGate will preserve ids if "Insane mode" is on and also target environment should not be on-premise.

        The ability to preserve list IDs is an important option. It would be nice it there was an option to do this as needed, since it doesn't always matter. In some cases we have lists that rely on the item ID. Having that change during migration becomes a huge problem. I've seen the workaround, but that only works in limited situations.

        Adding the list item GUID information would help this user associate the flawed items with his environment
