Restore site collection from on-premise SharePoint RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello.

    I have a SharePoint 2019 site collection on-premise.  I have taken a backup using backup-spsite but can't find the commands to restore it to my Office 365 SharePoint site.  Can anyone help with the best way to do this please?  Do I just not have enough permissions to access the commands?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hi Ted,

    From the Step 1a of the TechNet blog, in the Note section, it says:

    "SPO migration pipe is oriented for list and document library content only"

    So, the solution should be for list and library content, not the entire site collection content.

    If you want to migrate the content of a site collection from SharePoint On-premise to SharePoint Online, you can save the site collection as a template on On-premise and create a new site collection on SharePoint Online using the new template.

    More information, refer to the following article:

    https://support.office.com/en-us/article/create-and-use-site-templates-60371b0f-00e0-4c49-a844-34759ebdd989

    Or, you can use a third party tool to migrate the content.

  • Hello, and thanks for the reply.

    That's a shame, I thought Microsoft would have allowed me to import my on-premise sites to O365.  What tools do you recommend for this?  I don't want to rebuild the site collection from scratch.
