A straightforward approach does not work well for performing Amazon WorkDocs to OneDrive migration, especially at an enterprise scale. It is crucial to choose the right migration solution and frame a proper strategy to get every aspect of the cloud transition right.

As one of the industry-leading cloud office migration solutions providers, we at CloudFuze, have the right tool, insights, and methodologies that can enable your organization to move from Amazon WorkDocs to OneDrive in a seamless and secure way.

Challenges of Migrating from Amazon WorkDocs to OneDrive

Businesses face several challenges when migrating to OneDrive from Amazon WorkDocs. The challenges stem from the need for businesses to replicate the properties of the Amazon WorkDocs files and folders in OneDrive. Here are some of the core challenges:

  • Migrating the sharing permissions of root and inner folders and files
  • Preserving the timestamps (modified and/or migrated) of Amazon WorkDocs files and folders in OneDrive
  • Migrating the links embedded in files without breaking them
  • Preserving the versions of files

Step 5: Verify the Clouds Addition

Navigate to the Manage Clouds tab and check whether both clouds are added. If one or both clouds are not present, it indicates cloud-adding failure. Restart the cloud adding process to resolve the issue (only if it occurs).

Step 6: Configure the Source and Destination Clouds

Click on Teams Migration. Choose Amazon WorkDocs as the source and OneDrive as the destination cloud. Click on Next to proceed to the next stage.

Step 7: Map the User Accounts

In this Content Mapping stage, map the user accounts from Amazon WorkDocs to OneDrive. To simplify the mapping process, you can use the webapp’s Auto-Map feature which automatically maps the source and destination user accounts based on their email aliases.

But for custom mapping, CSV mapping is the way to go. Our migration team will help create CSV mappings for your organization’s users as a pilot batch and for the actual migration.

Step 8: Map the Permission
