contentGATE migration of MS Outlook PST files to contentACCESS Email Archive

5.2.5.Mapping source objects to target objects

Note: The Error report and Reset errors buttons are explained in the section Migration report.

contentGATE migration requires to map the objects on the source side (in this case Outlook PST files) to the objects on the target side (contentACCESS Email archive mailboxes). Open the “Mappings” tab and click “Create” in the toolbar to create the desired object mapping(s).

The “Mappings” dialog features the

  • source object(s) TO BE MIGRATED on the source side, and
  • target object(s) WHERE the source objects can be migrated on the target side.
Note: One source object can be mapped to one target only, but one target object may be associated with multiple source objects. This is called merging. Wish you associate multiple source objects with the same target, uncheck option “Hide mapped target object” above the grid.

Mappings in contentGATE may be specified either

  • manually
  • automatically
  • file based

Automap is currently unavailable for PST files to contentACCESS Email archive migration type, so the desired mappings must be set manually. By manual selection select each source and target one-by-one, and map them together using the “Map selected” option.

Added mappings are shifted to the lower part of the Mappings dialog.

Click “OK” to add them to the grid.

Note: Mapped objects are marked with green color in the source and target grids, while unmapped objects are blue.

To map objects based on a file, click on File based mapping… in the Mappings dialog.

Click on Select file and select the file to load the data from. The location of the file will be displayed in the textbox next to the button, the file content will be displayed in the box under it. Specify the separator of the properties. If you want to ignore the first line of text in your file (e.g. header, as in our use case), check the Ignore first line checkbox. Select the Source and Target property from the dropdown lists respectively. Click on Start mapping and then Apply changes. The remaining steps are the same as when mapping manually and/or automatically.

Note: Only .csv file format is supported.

The created mappings can be assigned to a previously created group also from the Mappings dialog.
