Browser Authentication for management features

Our management features now include browser authentication, allowing you to connect to environments with custom security solutions. We know that in many organizations, custom settings or third party solutions are required to comply with rigorous industry standards when authenticating to their servers. To make sure that we stick to your reality, we created this browser authentication to make sure that you will be able to connect to your environment even if you are not using a default configuration.

New PowerShell commands for your SharePoint migration

We’ve added more granular actions that were previously only available using the user interface. PowerShell fans, this is for you!

Here are the new actions you can do with PowerShell scripting:

  • Specify a view when copying items or documents
  • Copy a single specific item or document

For more information on how to use these commands, we’ve provided links to help get you started:

Enhanced fault tolerance for network outages

Few things are more frustrating than starting a large migration overnight and waking up to a wall of errors caused by a network issue. Sharegate is now able to detect these issues and temporarily suspend the migration in order to let your network or SharePoint servers recover. It will then seamlessly continue the migration for you. No more nightmares!
