CGI Object Importer Generator

By  CGI

CGI Object Importer Generator, called “CGI OI Generator”, makes it simple to generate Object Importer files in order to import data with the module Object Importer.

CGI OI Generator has three main functionalities: 

Generate Object Importer file from a CSV file

  • The CSV file must respect an internal format (cf. CSV format) o Each item of the CSV can be multilingual, multi-metadata and multi-permissions
  • This function can in particular be used to migrate data from a source which is not a file system 

Generate CSV file from scanning a File System

  • CGI OI Generator scans a File System and retrieves all the documents and folders of this system. The results is stored in a CSV file
  • It is possible to choose the information to retrieve (files/folders, Size/Type/Owner/…) and to filter the content exported (e.g. avoid “.tmp” files)
  • This function can in particular be used to have an overview of the content of a file system. It can also be used to pre-filter the content which need to be converted to Object Importer format 

Generate Object Importer file directly from scanning a File System

  • This is the combination of the two previous functionalities, which is optimized to directly convert a File System to an Object Importer file
  • This function can in particular be used to migrate data from a file system in a “as is” mode
