Best practice to move things between various environments in SharePoint 2013 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All SharePoint Gurus!! - I was using SP deployment wizard to move Sites/lists/libraries/items etc. using SP Deployment Wizard (spdeploymentwizard.codeplex.com) in SP 2010. We just upgraded to SP 2013. I have few Lists and Libraries that I need to push into the Staging 2013 and Production 2013 environment from Development 2013 environment. SP Deployment Wizard  is throwing error right from the startup. I checked SP 2013 provides granular backups but is restricted to Lists/Library level. Could anybody let me know if SP Deployment Wizard works for 2013? I love that tool. Also, Whats the best practice to move things between various environments?

    Regards,

  • Hi Khushi,

    I want to let you know that we built SharePoint Migration tool MetaVis Migrator that can copy and migrate to and from on-premise or hosted SharePoint sites. The tool can copy entire sites with sub-site hierarchies, content types, fields, lists, list views, documents, items with attachments, look and feel elements, permissions, groups and other objects - all together on at any level of granularity (for example, just lists or just list views or selected items). The tool preserves created / modified properties, all metadata and versions. It looks like Windows Explorer with copy/paste and drag-n-drop functions so it is easy to learn. It does not require any server side installations so you can do everything using your computer or any other server. The tool can copy the complete sites or just individual lists or even selected items. The tool also supports incremental or delta copy based on the previous migrations. The tool also includes Pre-Migration Analysis that helps to identify customizations.

    Free trial is available: http://www.metavistech.com . Feel free to contact us.

    Good luck with your migration project,

    Mark

  • Hi Waqas - I read the Curah's article but still I couldn't figure out how to move single list item or single page from staging to production environment. I used SPDeployment wizard in 2010 but it is not working in 2013. I couldn't find the latest version of the codeplex solution. Could you please guide me? 

    Regards,
