Importing a Job Template

Only templates that have been created from the same Edition of Metalogix Content Matrix Console can be imported. For example, a job template from SharePoint Edition cannot be used in File Share Edition, it can only be imported into SharePoint Edition.

To import a job template:

1.In Metalogix Content Matrix's ribbon menu, switch to the Settings tab and click [Manage Job Configurations] button to display the Manage Job Configurations dialog.

Manage Job Configurations dialog

2.Click the Import button at the top of the Manage Job Configurations dialog, navigate to the folder location for the template XML file, then click [Open].

The job template will be added to the list of templates in the Manage Job Configurations dialog. The template will be listed using the same Display name that was used when the task was created on the original system, and will not have its file name displayed.

The job template is now imported and can be applied to any migration.

Importing and Exporting Migration Jobs

From the Jobs List, you can export a job to an xml file.  This functionality allows you to:

·Copy a job from one instance of Metalogix Content Matrix to another (as long they are for the same Edition).

·Manually modify a job, then re-import it.

To export a job to an xml file:

1.In the Job List, select the job you want to export.

2.Right-click, and choose Export selected job to xml.

The xml file will automatically open in whatever program is set as the default application for xml files, and it can be saved to any desired location.

To import an xml file to the Job List:

1.Make sure the file you want to import uses a different ID value than any existing Jobs (this should only be an issue if the XML file was previously exported from the same Metalogix Content Matrix Console).

NOTE: If the xml file that is being imported contains the same ID value as an already existing Job, then the import will fail.

2.From the Job List menu, choose File > Import Jobs From Xml.

3.Select the xml file to import.

If the import is successful, the job will be listed in the Job List section.  If unsuccessful, an error message will be given.

Scheduling a Migration Job

Metalogix Content Matrix can run a migration action through the Metalogix Content Matrix Console or as a Windows Scheduled Task.

How the Schedule Task Feature Works

Metalogix Content Matrix Console can run any migration as a scheduled task on the system that the client application is installed on. This can be any migration action that exists in the Job List section, whether it's a migration job that was saved or a job that was previously run. Once a job exists in the Job List section users can run the Schedule Task option.

The Schedule Task option saves configurations for the selected job(s) as a PowerShell script. After the script has been saved, you must create a Windows Scheduled task:

·through the Metalogix Content Matrix Console UI


·directly in the Windows Task Scheduler

Once these jobs have been created as scheduled tasks they can no longer be viewed (as scheduled tasks) in Metalogix Content Matrix.  If you want to make any other modifications or remove the task you can do so  directly in the Windows Task Scheduler. If a task has been scheduled, the system will be able to run the task at the appointed time(s), regardless of whether Metalogix Content Matrix client application is open.

After the scheduled task has run, a new entry will be added into Metalogix Content Matrix's Job List section.
