Follow these steps to import content from your mapped templates:

Click "Import" from main menu

After all the mapping criteria are set, navigate to the Import section.

Set GatherContent project

At this stage you can select any GatherContent project with a mapped template. You can also filter Items by GatherContent workflow status and Template.

The import path can be changed individually for any item.

If a template for an item has more than one mapping defined, the system will show a dropdown with possible mappings next to each such Item.

Select Items

Select the Items you would like to import. The items which are parts of hierarchy will be imported under their parent items import path. The Import Path field is not available for such items.

If the Import Path is empty the default path /content/gathercontent will be used. The confirmation popup appears in this case.

Click the "Import" button. This will launch the confirmation screen.

Start import

Clicking the "Confirm" button will launch the import process. The process can take some time depending on the number of Items to be imported.

During the import process, AEM items will be created in accordance with specified template and field mappings. All imported items will be created in a hierarchical structure under selected parent node (so the GatherContent Item hierarchy will be replicated). The Content editor is free to rearrange all items, the new structure will be kept during further updates.

View import results

After the import is finished, the import result screen will appear where all imported and not imported items are shown. It is now possible to open an item in AEM or GatherContent.

The import results page will list all successful and failed imports. Open the "See log" link to discover the failed import cause.
