Migration Assessment Scan: Customized Profile Pages
Learn how to mitigate issues with Customized Profile pages during migration.
In the source environment, viewing a user's profile is managed by a page hosted in the My Site Host named Person.aspx. For example, selecting a colleague's name in a document library or from their Microsoft OneDrive will take you to the person.aspx page to view the user's profile.
After migration to the target environment, the profile experience is managed by the Delve service. There is currently a limitation in that the Delve profile page cannot be modified. This scan report will show you any customizations that have been made to the Person.aspx page in the source environment. This data can be used to understand any impact with the move to the target environment with regards to the profile experience.

Preparing for Migration
Understand any customizations made to the Person.aspx page in the source environment, and investigate whether there is any impact with the move to the new Delve profile experience. The new experience solves most of the scenarios that resulted in customization on the previous platform.
Validate the profile experience on the new platform.
