SharePoint Find & Replace
Safely find & replace old URLs and strings
in your SharePoint 2013-2019 farm/Office 365 sites
Planning to upgrade to a new SharePoint edition or migrate to a new server?
With hundreds, thousands or millions of sites, many of them customized with SPD by power-users, and with thousands of documents that might also include hard-coded links to your older SharePoint server, now you can fix all these wrong/broken links in a reliable way and without losing so much time on manual fixes.
SharePoint Find & Replace replaces hard-coded strings in SharePoint.
This administration client-tool supports SharePoint 2013-2019 server, as well as SharePoint online (O365). KWizCom’s SharePoint Find & Replace will scan your SharePoint farm and will replace the existing strings with an updated string of your choosing. The tool includes a “Scan only” mode as well as a detailed log – both enable the admin to stay in control and easily monitor all string replacements.
Define which tokens should be searched, for each token define with what alternative string it should be replaced.
You can also import/export these tokens from/to a CSV file.
Add the searched site collection urls. These sites can be in different farms, in your on-premises deployment and on Office 365 (SharePoint on-line).
Select between 2 modes of execution:
Find only (without actually replacing anything), and Replace.
You can also fine-tune your search by selecting where exactly in SharePoint you’d like to search for your defined tokens.
You are no doubt aware that during the process of implementing SharePoint-based solutions, configuration changes often lead to a situation where hard-coded strings in the SharePoint information store are either not updated anymore, or even worse: they are simply wrong, pointing the user to a wrong location. For example, a “Favorites” links list item that directs users to “http://intranet/site” now needs to be changed to “http://extranet/site”.
