Classification Rule Properties

The Classification Rule Properties dialog box is available in the action pane as well as the context menu. This is where you define the rules for database classification as well as rules for mapping analysis and migration type properties. Migration jobs for classified databases can be defined and run from here is well. The dialog box is organized in a tabular layout.

General tab

Table 38. General tab

Class Name

Name of class


Description of class


The Type property ensures that a database assigned to this Class has the same type of reference database. It can be set to QuickPlace, Quickr, or Domino.Doc. The default is blank. Assigning the class a Type allows Migrator for Notes to SharePoint to do the following:

When you assign a reference database and analyze it in the Class Template tab of the Class Properties, it will be analyzed as that type of database.
When you create or edit migration jobs from the Migration Jobs tab of the Class Properties, it will assign the reference database with the proper type.

The Type property does not impact how classification works or how rules are applied to individual databases.

Rules tab

This tab has the rules that are used when classifying a database. If a database meets the rules defined in this tab, it will be automatically classified as the given class.

Rules are prioritized (applied in a predefined order); the first one that matches is used and subsequent rules are not tested. To move a rule higher in the order, select the rule in the list and click the Move Up button. To move a rule lower in the order, select the rule and click Move Down.

To create a rule, click the Add button on the right. To edit an existing rule, select the rule from the list and click Edit. To delete a rule, select the rule from the list and click Delete.

You can define as many rules as needed. Select the Match only if All above conditions are met radio button to create an And condition or select the Match if ANY above conditions are met radio button to create an Or condition for your rules.

Clicking Add or Edit opens the Database Classification Rule dialog box.

Using the Recognize By radio buttons, select the method for identifying databases. The Last Used radio button allows you to identify databases whose last used date falls within a specified date range.

Select the Use Regular Expressions check box if your rule uses regular expressions for identifying the strings. Some examples of regular expressions:

^abc - starts with the string "abc".

abc$ - ends with the string "abc".

^abc$ - matches the string "abc" exactly.

abc - contains the string "abc".

^ab.*cd$ - starts with "ab" and ends with "cd", with anything in between.

^$ - starts with "ab" and ends with "cd", with 3 characters in between.

For more information on regular expression, see

Class Template tab

Databases that qualify to be members of the given class can have their analysis automatically run using the information defined in this tab. To do this, you must run the Apply class rules action for the databases once this tab is filled out.

Reference database

The design of each database associated with this class is compared with the designs of the Reference database. To select a Reference database click Select.

Automatically assign as reference database for each class member

If checked, the reference database will be automatically assigned to the databases of this class during the Apply class rules process.

Include in “Best Fit” testing for all databases

If checked, the reference database will be included in the "Best Fit" "design matching which recognizes the applications that are based on similar designs, regardless of whether or not they are currently inherited from the same application template. For more information on this matching process, see Analyze databases .

To analyze the design of the reference database, click Scan Design.

The design summary will appear at the bottom of the tab once the reference database has been scanned. To view the details of the design, click Design Details. You can generate an InfoPath form from a Notes form.

The design information on the Class Template tab is part of the reference database’s properties sheet. It is visible here for ease of use. This same data is accessible from the database’s Design Analysis tab.
