I have a SharePoint site (let's call it site A) that we are going to delete but we have 2 pages on that site that need to be moved to a different site (let's call it site B). Those pages are instrumental for 2 other processes and both have unique permissions and document libraries that were all created under the Site A settings. 

 

I'm assuming when we actually delete the Site A, we lose those pages, the document libraries and permission groups since they were created under that site. 

 

My questions are:

  1. Is my assumption correct and by deleting Site A we will lose the pages, the document libraries, and the groups? 
  2. Is it possible to move the two pages over to Site B without having to complete re-create them?
  3. Is it possible to move the document libraries over to Site B without having to completely re-create them?
  4. Is it possible to move the user groups over to Site B?

Maybe this information will help you a little.

I would be happy to know if I could help.

Hello, @Amanda_Fasano

 

Yes, you are correct in that when you delete a site you delete all of the associated pages. They will go to a recycle bin accessible by your SharePoint administrators and be available for resurrection for 30 days.

 

Unfortunately, copy and paste are not available options in SharePoint - for pages, libraries or permissions.

 

It will all be a manual process of creating the appropriate pages and Document Libraries on Site B, then moving the background files / resources and adding links to the new pages in Site B.

 

When it comes to assigning permissions, if you have AD (Active Directory) groups or single-layer PDLs set up, you can use those for granting permissions to groups of users. Otherwise, it's a manual effort.
