5 - Introduction to Migration Tasks
The details for migration tasks vary depending on your source system - please select your source from the options below.
To create a migration task, select the source container/folder and map it to the target Site collection/Site/Library/Folder and create a migration task using the Create Task menu on the Ribbon, or simply drag source folder/container on to target site/library/folder. The migration tasks are located at the bottom of the main window and designed to display the mapped source and target containers.
The Create Migration Task screen shows different task settings which will help users to:
- Create task using default task settings
- Create Task using existing migration task
- Create Task using exported tasks settings
Oracle UCM Source
The migration tasks are located at the bottom of the main window and designed to display the mapped source and target containers.
To create a new migration task, first select the source Oracle UCM container that you wish to migrate. To select an Oracle UCM container, expand the tree in the “Source Connections” pane and select the container you want to migrate. The different types of containers that can be selected for migration are:
- Site or a specific Content Type within a Site
- Contribution Folder
Similarly expand the “Target Connections” tree and select the appropriate target container within which you want the source items to be migrated.
To create migration tasks, simply drag and drop the source container (e.g. Folder) on to the target container (e.g. Document library). Alternatively select the containers and use the ribbon “Create” command button.
This will create a new migration task and launch the settings screen where you can specify settings like: content type mapping settings, metadata mapping settings, general settings, content type structure mapping settings and user mapping settings for that particular Migration Task.
All the created migration tasks are listed in the "Migration Tasks" pane.
You can remove migration tasks by selecting a task from migration tasks pane and clicking on the “Remove” command button in the ribbon. This will delete all the records of that migration task from database.
The settings for an existing migration task can be edited by clicking on the Settings icon . To navigate to the Execution view, you can click on the Execute icon against a task. Alternatively, you can select the Execute tab on the ribbon control and then select the task in the Execution view.
