Run stream migrations

Migrate for AODocs is a tool that allows you to migrate files and folders into your AODocs libraries.

Important: Migrate for AODocs is currently available for our service teams only. For EAP access, contact

This article explains how to run stream migrations with Migrate from AODocs. Open streams let you migrate small bundles of documents continually. You configure the context for the stream migration, and documents are then sent via API with all their data.

Configure stream migrations

1. Access advanced mode and select Stream migration.


2. Enter a name for your stream migration so it is easily identifiable in the migration panel.

Note: If you don't enter a name, the migration identifier is used as the name.  

3. Configure common options for migrations: under Define target options.

Note: It's mandatory to select a document class for stream migrations.

4. Click Next.


4. Click Binding.


5. In the Edit migration binding dialog, define the custom properties you want to migrate. You don't need to define system properties, but you can set default values for them.

You can define default values for:

  • custom properties: select a custom property type in the Property type field and enter the source and target property names (mandatory) and values (optional)
  • system properties (except for ID, TITLE, TARGET ID and ATTACHMENTS): select a system property in the Property type field and enter a default value

Click the Add button to add more properties to the list.

You can only use existing custom properties in stream migrations. You can't create new properties.
– After selecting the type of property, you must enter the exact property name. If you enter a property that doesn't exist in your library, an error message appears when you click Apply

6. Click Apply.

7. Click Start migration

You now have a stream migration set up to an AODocs library. Data for small bundles of documents can be sent regularly via API through the stream and imported into the AODocs library.


View your stream migrations

Open the Stream tab.

Your stream migrations are listed. You can see how many documents have been migrated, how many are pending and how many resulted in an error.


Click the name of a stream migration. The right panel opens where you can can recover the migration identifier. 

Note: To stop stream migrations, use the API.
