Hi, and welcome. This video will cover content type re-mapping in Quest's Migration Suite for SharePoint. I'm going to walk you through the process. I'm going to create a custom content type on the SharePoint target destination. And then we will use the Migration Suite for SharePoint to map the default document content type to discuss some created content.
So here I am on a target SharePoint 2010 site. I'm going to go into my Shared Documents. I'm going to Library Settings. And we'll click on the Advanced Settings. We'll allow Management of Content Types. We'll click OK. We're going to actually go to the Site Settings. And we are going to look at the Site Content Types. We're going to create a new one.
This is going to be our User Guide-- User guides. And this is going to be based off a document content type and the parent will be Document. And we'll create it in the Custom Content Types group. So we just created a custom content type so far. I'm going to add another column to this. So we're going add from a New Site column.
And we are going to say Version or Release, since we're talking about user guides of products. So this is going to be a Release. And I will just say OK. So I'm just adding. Just making custom-- making it your own. Which is probably what you have and you want to map to it. And then we are going to also add from my New Content-- from New Site Content, we'll say Description.
Multiple lines of text, and we'll go ahead and say OK. Description is preserved. So we'll say Justification. Justification. And we'll say OK. All right, so now if we go to our, again, release-- well let's go back to the Shared Documents. Let's go Libraries. Let's go Library Settings. And let's add from an Existing Site Content Type. We are going to choose Document and-- where's the one we just created?
What did we-- what did we call it? We called it User Guides. We'll add User Guides in here. And we'll go ahead and click OK. So now we are able to create content on this Document Library using a couple of content types. So if I go to Documents, and I try to upload-- got a couple of things that I can upload-- Document and User Guide. So there's nothing really to show here. This is probably what you already have. You have it a lot more customized.
What I'm going to do is I'm going to now map to that new content type using Migration Manager for SharePoint. So with Migration Manager for SharePoint, first of all, let me connect to that site. So let me connect to-- this is the target site which contains that Document Library with that custom content type. And all I'm doing here is I'm refreshing the site content here in Migration Manager for SharePoint.
And let me connect to one of the 2007 sites that I'll be working with. So I'll connect to the RMSP 2007 site. And within the site, we should have a Document Library that has, say, our User Guides. So these are the documents I want to map to this newly created content type in Shared Documents in here.
So what I'm going to do is I'm going to highlight all these documents. Obviously, you could run a filter to get exactly what you want to get out of this Document Library , not necessarily the whole thing, but rather just a subset of what you want to bring across. And then a few options we have. I can right click and Copy, or I'm just going to Select all of them, drag them and drop them on to this Document Library.
Again, this is the target Document Library that contains these multiple content types. You will actually see them in here. You see Document and User Guide. So I'm going to switch over to User Guide. This is going to now read those columns. Here's Justification we created in the release, and it's got title and created a name. So by default, we'll map Name to Name. Let's see what we want to map to Justification.
We could give a specific default value or we'll say Justification will be Based Off. We'll also pick the Title, or we'll pick the Name. So Justification will be the Name. You could obviously pick any attribute that you see here on the source. So we'll map Name to Justification as well. We'll map the-- for Release, we'll map the Title.
You may have a content type on the source-- the default content that maybe you're populating some information that you want to map in here. And then Title is going to go to Title. Created is going to go to Created. What I'm showing you here is the ability to map a document content type to at different, in this case, User Guide content type. We'll say Next.
Some Default Options to choose from. Do you want to Overwrite [? that the ?] file exists? Do you want to Remove the Folder Structure-- I don't have a folder structure. Do I want copy the Web Parts, Permissions-- a lot of options to choose from. And a lot of ways to run this migration. You could run it through a script. You could generate CSV file or you just click on Finish and that initiates the migration.
In this case, we're doing two things. We're upgrading a Document Library from 2007 to 2010. And we are we re-mapping the content type. It doesn't have to be an upgrade scenario. You could be working with a pure 2010 or a pure 2007 environment. Three items have been processed. Everything looks good. So, it's been processed. Let's go to the Target Destination, which is this Document Library. Let's Refresh.
And we'll see in here that we have migrated a couple or three documents in here. And we can now view the properties of these items. And you will see that we've mapped Name, Title, Release, and Justification. We know that this is the User Guide content type, because, first of all, it tells us that right through here. And then we see the values or the fields or the columns are that content type in here as well.
So this has been a video of how we re-map content types in Migration Suite for SharePoint. Thanks for tuning in.
