Challenges of Migrating from Amazon WorkDocs to OneDrive

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
Steps to Migrate from Amazon WorkDocs to OneDrive
Explore each step of migrating users, files, and folders from Amazon WorkDoc to OneDrive using our content migration platform, X-Change. Follow along to gain full clarity on the migration process.
Step 1: Log Into the CloudFuze Webapp
The first step is to access our migration webapp. Log into it if you already have an account.
Step 2: Request for A Business Migration Account if You Don’t Have It
If you don’t have an account to perform multi-user migrations on our webapp, please create an account and request for the multi-user migration feature.
Step 3: Add the Amazon WorkDocs Cloud to CloudFuze
Navigate to the Business Clouds section of the CloudFuze webapp dashboard. Locate Amazon WorkDocs and click on Add Cloud.
Step 4: Add the OneDrive Cloud to CloudFuze
Similarly, locate OneDrive for Business in the Business Clouds section and click on Add Cloud.
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
In the Permissions Mapping stage, review the automatically mapped user permissions. You can make changes to the permissions mapping by clicking on the edit icon.
Step 9: Set the Migration Parameters
In the Migration Options stage, choose the migration parameters as per your migration needs. Select the types of file features to migrate. In the Job Options section, you can set additional parameters as per your preference.
Step 10: Preview and Start the Migration
The final step before starting the migration is to preview all the parameters you have set.
If everything looks good to go, click on Start Migration to start the data transfer process.
Step 11: Monitor the Migration
Upon starting the migration, you will be redirected to the Reports page. There, check the migration statuses in the dashboard to keep track of the migration process.
The migration status will change to Completed after all the user accounts, files, and folders are migrated from Amazon WorkDocs to OneDrive.
