Hi All,

Looking for some feedback from the community. Was wondering if it is possible to migrate the Created By and Modified Date for documents while file migration from a file server to SharePoint Online. In the past whenever I have migrated the documents, it by defaults takes Admin as the Created By/Modified By meta data and also overrides the modified date to the date the files is being migrated rather than the modified date a user might have last updated the document. 

Thank you for your feedback!

@Ajay Mandal if you have Azure AD Connect deployed in your environment and all users are synced to Azure AD , then the tool will automatically map the on-prmise user SID to the AAD Upn.  if thei is not the case then you can create a mapping of the users SID to UPN  and then migrate. Check this. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sharepointmigration/create-a-user-mapping-file-for-data-content-mig...

 

for the Created Date and Last Modified Date. They too are migrated.  it takes the NTFS file attribute and updates it to SharePoint Online
