Group Mapping tab

The information on this tab is used only when group mapping is performed on the client. If the mapping is to be performed remotely by the Import Service, the group mapping settings defined on the Migrator for Notes to SharePoint configuration page of the SharePoint Server will be used.

In addition to the User Mappings, there are several options for mapping Notes Group names to Domain group names (typically Active Directory group names) for use in SharePoint. This translation may occur in several scenarios:

As with the User Mapping function, Migrator for Notes to SharePoint gives you several choices as to how the mapping occurs. Each of the options shown here work exactly like the corresponding User Mapping options.

Link Tracking tab

The Link Tracking Service allows Notes DocLinks to be migrated as dynamic links instead of direct links. As you click dynamic links, they are automatically redirected to the current location of the target document, regardless if it has been migrated or not.

To enable link tracking, select the Enable the Quest Link Tracking Service check box. You can also perform the Link Tracking Finalizer/Updater operations from the Console rather than from the Migrator for Notes to SharePoint Services configuration page.

The following Link Tracking settings are now available:

Server – The SQL Server instance that contains the Link Tracking database.
Database – The SQL Server name for the Link Tracking database.
Execution time-out – The maximum time in seconds the Link Tracking Service is allowed to run. The default value is 30. For no time limit, set it to 0.
Authentication – The credentials that the client should use when accessing the Link Tracking database. This can be your Window’s account, a different user’s Window’s account, or your SQL Server login.
Test Connection - Click on this button to verify your settings.
Use default Redirector URL– Link Tracking for SharePoint migrations will use the default redirector page.
User Defined Redirection URL – This option allows you to define your own user defined redirection URLs if you want the redirection to be handled in some other way.

Publish Status tab

Select the Enable publishing migration status to SharePoint check box to record the migration progress to a SharePoint list.



Allows you to select a SharePoint site which will publish the report list:

SharePoint servers using Quest Import Service - Use this option for migrations to a remote SharePoint server that is running the Quest Import Service.
SharePoint web services (Classic Mode Authentication) - Use this option for migrations to a remote SharePoint 2010, 2013, 2016 or 2019 server using Microsoft Web Services rather than the Quest Import Service.
SharePoint web services (Office 365 Authentication) - Use this option to migrate to Office 365 SharePoint sites using Microsoft's Windows Identity Foundation. Microsoft's Windows Identity Foundation must be installed on the client in order to use the Office 365 Authentication environment type.
