How to migrate 700+ PWA sites to SharePoint/Project Online RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have identified one article from MS which is explaining how to migrate PWA site to Project Online which involves manual effort. But we are having 796 PWA sites, so manual effort is highly error prone and difficult to maintain as well.

    Is there any better way for migrating PWA sites to Project Online? Any tools are available to achieve this?

  • Hi Mihir,

    You have this 3rd party tool which enables migrating projects and sites from Project Server to Project Online.

  • I suspect you'll need to develop a PowerShell script to handle this.  I would search Paul Mather's blog and community published TechNet content and see what it there for you to use as a starter... https://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/site/search?f%5B0%5D.Type=RootCategory&f%5B0%5D.Value=sharepoint&f%5B0%5D.Text=SharePoint

  • Another way to migrate is to have the project manages save the projects to their local disk drives, then open project online and import them.  Its not automated, but works if trying to save money on 3rd party tools or time building PowerShell Script.

    Also, keep in mind that resources must be mapped to project online,  custom fields may need to be mapped, calendars may need to be mapped.

    Basically, the PowerShell scripts will need to be able to manage all the different types of issues with migration.
