  2. Release powershell process after job is submitted

    I think there should be an option to just submit the job to the ShareGate client (like you do in the GUI), and then release the PowerShell process for other work.

    The ShareGate client would then scan and upload to storage blob and show reports etc how thing goes. This would also allow us to close the PowerShell window after submitting the job. As now, if it’s closed, the job is cancelled, and you need to restart it.

  4. Support Azure App Registration for Powershell Modern Auth for Unattended Scripts.

    Ability to use Azure App registration for powershell modern authentication in order to support unattended scripts.

    Using -browser param, defeats purpose of scripting automation for large volume migrations of sites during off hours.

    Basic Legacy auth will eventually be deprecated by MS.

  5. Copy-Content: add -VersionLimit parameter

    It'd be great if the -VersionLimit parameter could be added to Copy-Content.

    Currently I'm having to use a three step process where I disable versions, copy the content and then re-enable versioning.

  6. Map properties depending on the source content type

    On our scenario, we want to map two properties from the source, not one.
    However, we do not want to merge them into one because it's not the case that two existing properties will map to one property; they will still be a one-to-one mapping.

    We would like to do something like this,

    $propMappings = Set-PropertyMapping -MappingSettings $propMappings -Source "prop1" -Destination "prop3"

    $propMappings = Set-PropertyMapping -MappingSettings $propMappings -Source "prop2" -Destination "prop3"

    However, by doing this ShareGate overwrites the first mapping with the second one.

    The reason for doing this is simple: each content type will only have one of the…

  7. Map/concatenate multiple text properties into a single property

    We would like that, in PowerShell, we could have the ability to map multiple properties to a single property.
    At the moment, it seems that this is possible only with certain types of fields.

    "3) Advanced scenario – Multiple columns to a single column
    Since Sharegate 2.9, any destination column that supports the ‘multi-values’ (Lookup, Choice, People, Managed Metadata) option will allow more than one column to be mapped to it"
    https://sharegate.com/blog/sharepoint-merge-remap-multiple-columns-to-a-single-column

    So if we have a simple scenario such as:
    Property A (text)
    Property B (text)

    We cannot map them to a
    Property C (text)

    this is only allowed…

  10. Have a -exclude command in PowerShell

    To have an -Exclude switch in the powershell command set so that you can specific list/libraries to exclude from a run.

    Most instances, the excludes are much less than the included lists.

  12. Provide ability to output errors only

    When using PowerShell to perform a content migration, ShareGate outputs successes, errors, warnings, etc.. Please provide a way to output errors only so we can check for errors > 0, and if true, do something (like use native PowerShell functionality to email the admin, for example). This way, multiple migrations can be run without the need to scan all the results for errors.

  13. Diagnostics for Powershell tasks

    My migration has to be managed through tasks initiated in Powershell, and I have had some issues that needed ShareGate support, however the trace diagnostics only apply to the ShareGate app UI, the PS initated tasks don't get traced. Replicating the scenario through the UI and tracing it was laborious and futile.

  19. Add/Remove/Copy user permissions with PowerShell

    Add powershell cmdlets to add/remove/copy user permissions.

    This could be useful, for example, for a user that needs to replace thousands of users due to an AD domain change, it would be useful to be able to use a CSV for all the users
