Sample script to transform SharePoint Migration Tool reports

Developer Support

Jason Giordano shares a script to help sort information collected by the SharePoint Migration Tool by website and folder.

The SharePoint Migration Tool is a helpful resource to migrate content from SharePoint on-premises to the cloud. The SharePoint Migration Tool generates log files, summary and task level reports to help you manage, audit and troubleshoot your migration process.

In some cases, reports generated by the SPMT can be difficult to work with because they are not sorted by website– especially if you need to spread out the work and ownership across teams. This is a simple script that transforms SPMT reports into folders, broken out by website so people working on specific pages can easily see which action items pertain to them.

Below is a simple VBScript (in most cases, you can save this as a .vbs file and execute it from Explorer).

Const sInputFolder = "C:\Input\" 

Const sOutputFolder = "C:\Output\" 

Const iForReading = 1 

Const iForAppending = 8 



Set fso = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject") 

Set oSourceFolder = fso.GetFolder(sInputFolder) 

Set oSourceFiles = oSourceFolder.Files 

For Each oFile in oSourceFiles     

        Set oInputFile = oFile.OpenAsTextStream(iForReading) 

        sHeaders = oInputFile.ReadLine 

        arrSplitHeaders = Split(sHeaders, ",") 

        If arrSplitHeaders(1)="SiteUrl" Then 

                Do While Not oInputFile.AtEndOfStream 

                       sCurrentLine = oInputFile.ReadLine 

                       arrSplitStrings = Split(sCurrentLine, ",") 

                       iTotal = UBound(arrSplitStrings, 1) 

                       If iTotal > 1 Then 

                              sSiteURL = Replace(arrSplitStrings(1),"/","-") 

                              sSiteURL = Replace(sSiteURL,"?","-") 

                              sSiteURL = Replace(sSiteURL,"=","-") 

                              sSiteURL = Replace(sSiteURL,":","") 

                              sSiteURL = Replace(sSiteURL," ","") 

                              sSiteURL = Replace(sSiteURL,"""","") 

                              If Len(sSiteURL) > 5 and Left(sSiteURL, 5) = "https" Then 

                                     If NOT(fso.FolderExists (sOutputFolder & sSiteURL)) Then fso.CreateFolder(sOutputFolder & sSiteURL) 

                                     If NOT(fso.FileExists (sOutputFolder & sSiteURL & "/" & oFile.Name)) Then 

                                            Set oOutputFile = fso.CreateTextFile(sOutputFolder & sSiteURL & "/" & oFile.Name) 

                                            oOutputFile.WriteLine sHeaders 


                                            Set oOutputFile = fso.OpenTextFile(sOutputFolder & sSiteURL & "/" & oFile.Name, iForAppending) 

                                     End If 

                                     oOutputFile.WriteLine sCurrentLine 

                              End If 

                       End If 



        End If
