5.5.4 - Custom Content Type (Source Classification)
18.104.22.168. Add Source Classification
You can add and map Custom Source Content types (Source Classification) by clicking on "Add a new source classification" icon. Each classification has its own unique set of metadata which can be mapped to the appropriate Target Content Type.
For example, file shares save images as document content types. SharePoint has a provision to save all the images with content type as “Image” rather than “Document”. To allow a proper mapping, Migration Accelerator provides “Add a new source classification” functionality in the Content Type Mapping Settings screen.
You can assign custom content type to a particular document type (e.g. Images having extension “.jpg” or “.png” in the Name field).
The “Add Source Classification” screen has a “Script Evaluation Area”. This can be used to evaluate the added scripts to verify whether they are correct.
See the image below for an example:
Add new Source Classification using Power Shell script
Add new Source Classification using Iron Python script
22.214.171.124. Edit Source Classification
Also there is a provision to edit the custom source classifications added by user. You can select the added source classification and click on “Edit source classification” icon to edit the script or change the base content type. This step is not mandatory.
You can then use the custom source classification to map to an appropriate target content type (e.g. Image) and map appropriate metadata(s) to target metadata(s). For more information on metadata mapping, visit "Metadata Mapping".
126.96.36.199. Delete Source Classification
You can also remove a custom content type which is not mapped by clicking on the “Delete Source Classification” icon as shown in image above.
