19) What are the advantages of using the SharePoint Security Sync Tool?

You can use the SharePoint Security Sync Tool to move bulk attachments from CRM to SharePoint.

In order to migrate historical data from the CRM to cloud storage such as SharePoint, we've implemented two distinct options: The Bulk Migration Job and the SharePoint Security Sync Tool.

We have incorporated the Bulk Migration Job feature into our solution to facilitate the migration of historical data from the CRM to respective cloud storage. Bulk Migration Job allowed us to migrate the data between specific time frame.

However, the Bulk Migration Job resides within CRM and is dependent on CRM resources, which may lead to extended migration durations.

To address the need for a faster migration process, we have developed the SharePoint Security Sync Tool. This tool is a Windows tool, so it operates independently of CRM resources. Consequently, it can efficiently migrate large volumes of data within a significantly shorter timeframe.

The SharePoint Security Sync Tool essentially replicates the functionality of the Bulk Migration Job but offers the advantage of speed.

Note: We recommend migrating history attachments in batches of 4 to 5 month period for optimal performance.
