Follow these steps to et from your mapped templates:

Click "Export" from the "Export to GC" menu

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

Set Root Path

At this stage, you can select the Root Path. The parent and all child pages will be available for export selection in the table below.

Set Content Workflow project and select Items to Export

Next, you select any Content Workflow project with a mapped template from Export Mappings and select the items you would like to export.

You can select a new status for items that will be assigned to items exported to Content Workflow.

Clicking the “Next” button brings you to the next step.

Set Import Path and Specify Mappings

At this stage, export mappings and Target Root Path can be specified individually for any item.

If a mapping for an AEM page has at least one matching property defined in export mapping, the system will show a dropdown with all possible export mappings next to each such Item. A number of matching properties will be displayed next to the mapping name.

Target Root Path helps to specify the Content Workflow Project parent Items. AEM pages will be exported under their specified Content Workflow Items. Items that are parts of the hierarchy will be exported under their Parent Target Root path. The Target Root Path field is not available for such items.

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

Start export

Clicking the "Confirm" button will launch the export process. The process can take some time depending on the number of items to be exported.

During the export process, Content Workflow items will be created in accordance with specified templates and field mappings. All exported items will be created in a hierarchical structure under the selected parent node.

View export results

After the export is finished, the export result screen will appear where all exported and not exported items are shown. It is now possible to open an item in AEM or Content Workflow.

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