Hiding certain user choices on the Specify Data for Migration screen

Hiding certain user choices on the Specify Data for Migration screen

The default display of the Specify Data for Migration screen lets the user migrate any combination of three types of data: server mail, archives and/or personal address books (PABs). But some administrators prefer to offer only one or two of these options. Four binary parameters in notesdtapp.ini, in the [General] section, can control whether or not these options will appear in the screen:

For each parameter, the default value 1 makes the corresponding option visible to the user on the Specify Data for Migration screen, while a setting of 0:

Masks the portions of the Welcome and Migration Report screens that pertain to the hidden option.

If a parameter is left unspecified in the INI file, the corresponding option will appear on the screen.

Note that these parameters do not set the marked-vs-unmarked status of the corresponding checkboxes, although those status settings can be controlled by other parameters (see Providing program entry values in notesdtapp.ini above).

NOTE: If AppDoesArch=0 or AppDoesMail=0, then Include Encrypted Messages is not displayed even if AppDoesEncrypted=1.

For example: to migrate archives only

In the introduction to this How Do I Customize ...? section we mentioned the example of an administrator who wants to migrate users’ server mail and address books in batches, and then use the Self-Service Desktop Migrator to migrate user archives (only). Since the Desktop Migrator will be used to migrate archives only, the admin wants to hide the other migration options (server mail and PABs) from the user, and moreover wants to streamline the rest of the user interface to minimize its demands on the users’ attention. To accomplish this in the notesdtapp.ini file:

[General]
AppDoesMail=0
AppDoesPabs=0
MigrateArchives=1

[ArchiveData]
MigrateTrashFolder=1

[Screens]
Welcome=skip
MigrateWhat=skip
SelectAddrBook=skip
SelectArchive=skip
SelectMailFile=skip
Profile=skip
Mailbox=skip
PstDir=skip
Summary=skip
Progress=skip
Finished=show

These parameters will configure the SSDM to run like this:

1
Welcome screen: Will not appear, because Welcome=skip and no user entires are requested on this screen.
2
Specify Data for Migration: Will not appear, since MigrateWhat=skip, and AppDoesMail=0 and AppDoesPabs=0, and the program will obtain its necessary archive-migration orders from MigrateArchives=1 and MigrateTrashFolder=1.
3
Select Notes Address Books to Migrate: Will not appear, because SelectAddrBook=skip, and AppDoesPabs=0.
4
Select Notes Archive Files to Migrate: Will not appear if users’ archives can reside in the default location (the "archive" subdirectory under the Notes data directory), because SelectArchive=Skip, and the program will find archives in their default location.
5
Select Notes Local Mail File Replica to Migrate: Will not appear, because SelectMailFile=skip, and AppDoesMail=0.
6
Select Profile: Will not appear if the program finds one and only one eligible Outlook profile on the user’s workstation. Otherwise, will be necessary to prompt the user to designate the profile.
7
Specify Directory for Migrated Archive: Will not appear, assuming the Outlook Default Directory is the preferred archive destination folder for every user. (If not, then specify a valid path for SelectedPstDir under [General], or change PstDir=skip to PstDir=show.)
8
Selection Summary: Will not appear, because Summary=skip and no user entires are requested on this screen.
9
Enter Password (for Exchange): May or may not appear, per user, depending on whether the user’s profile requires these credentials.
10
Migrating Data: Will not appear, because Progress=skip and no user entires are requested on this screen.
11
Migration Report: Will appear in every run, since Finished=show.

So, omitting the skipped screens, and accepting the assumptions noted in items 4, 6, and 7 above, the program’s screen sequence will consist of only:

1
Enter Password (for Exchange): May or may not appear, per user, depending on whether the user’s profile requires these credentials.
2
Migration Report: Will appear in every program run, since Finished=show.
