Incremental permissions copy option
Option to do an incremental permissions only copy, Or to copy all custom permissions in migration.

Yes please! I would like little 'units' like this that you can discreetly copy, permissions only, alerts on a list only are two that come up a lot.
In the most recent case, a customer asked us initially to brings permissions over as-is, then changed their mind, so we wrote a script to reinherit. And then, critically, changed their mind again, leaving us with 800+ SPWebs with permissions to be brought over.
We used this:
Copy-site -Site $srcSite -DestinationSite $destSite -merge -noNavigation -NoContent -NoWorkflows -NoSiteFeatures -noWebparts -NocustomizedFormsandViews -NoNintexWorkflowHistory -insaneMode -CopySettings $overwritesettings -mappingsettings $mappingsettings
which works, but takes a long time, I'd say it won't finish this weekend.
Is there any option to only migrate permissions of source site to target because i am facing one issue. Here is the scenario:
I migrated one source site to target and after the migration source site collection was put to read only mode. Then we found out that there was some permission issue in target (not same as source).Now, we only want to migrate permission from source but if we use copy structure mode , sharegate again migrates all list structures which creates problem with list content types as source is "READ ONLY".
So, can we have separate options for permission migraion and for other things also like navigation ,webparts ?
