Important: If you see the 'Migrate' tab in GatherContent, moving content from AEM to GatherContent is not supported. We will be updating our API to support this soon.
For now, we recommend exporting your data as a CSV file. From the 'Migrate' tab, you can then import that content.
Please let us know if you have any questions on this, using the blue bubble at the bottom right of the screen. Follow these steps to export content from your mapped templates:
Click "Export" from "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 GatherContent project and select Items to Export
Next, you select any GatherContent project with a mapped templates from Export Mappings and select the Items you would like to export.
You can select new status for items which will be assigned to items exported to GatherContent.
Clicking “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. Number of matching properties will be displayed next to mapping name.
Target Root Path helps to specify the GatherContent Project parent Items. AEM pages will be exported under their specified GatherContent Items. Items which are parts of 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.
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, GatherContent items will be created in accordance with specified template 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 GatherContent.
The import results page will list all successful and failed imports. Open the "See log" link to discover the failed import cause.
