Claims-based ADFS authentication and SP2003 support

Sharegate 2.5 is now available for download. This release is entirely based on the feedback received from our users. Thank you!

WHAT’S NEW IN THIS RELEASE? 

SharePoint 2003 support 

Since we received many requests for this feature, our copy tools now fully support SharePoint 2003 (WSS 2.0). It means that you can move your documents and items from SharePoint 2003 to SharePoint 2007 or 2010. You can also move your content from one location to another in SharePoint 2003.

Support ADFS authentication (SAML)

Sharegate now supports connections to SharePoint sites that use claims-based authentication with a SAML provider connected to a Microsoft ADFS v2 server. If your organization has a SharePoint site with users accessing from multiple trusted Active Directory domains, all your users will now be able to use Sharegate to copy or move their documents and items.

Claims-based Authentication

“Real” move operation (beta)

A “real” move operation was missing in Sharegate and it was a design decision since moving something with metadata, version history and system properties is a little bit tricky and can result in loss of data if you don’t know what you are doing. A lot of users requested this feature, so we decided to implement it. This feature is still in beta, so feel free to send us feedback.

Move operation


Apply to all versions option in the property template

This feature is awesome. When you create a property template, you can configure all your properties (keep original value, specify value, prompt for each), but sometimes you just want to apply the selected option for the latest version, not the entire history. We added a checkbox so you can choose to apply the option for all the versions or not.

Copy hidden fields

Hidden fields are now supported during a copy/move operation. In a property template, you can expand the hidden fields section to visualize and apply the same options as the other fields.
