User guide

There are two different phases to migrate a repository to OpenKM:

  1. Export data from a DMS to OpenKM intermediate format.
  2. Import data to OpenKM.

Export data

It depends on the implementation of how to extract data from a DMS system. The core of dms2okm provides valuable methods to help extract data and generate intermediate format for OpenKM.

Please see Supported DMS and versions section for more info about available DMS implementations.

Import data

This step is the same for whichever DMS you export/import.

The export phase generates an intermediate format that OpenKM uses to import your content.

To import the data, you must follow these steps:

  1. Go to the Administration tab.
  2. Click the Repository import button.
  3. Select the File System path and check Metadata and History (please do not select the Restore UUIDs checkbox).
  4. Click the Import button.

After a while (depending on the amount of data), you will see your data imported correctly.

OpenKM will prompt any problem with the importation of files and folders.
