Resources are items from the source system such as resource calendars, shared with all users.
First you will need to configure the CloudMigrator for your destination system as shown in the setup guides.
When clicking ‘Get Users’ Resources will also be obtained from the source system and be presented in the list, displayed with a different icon. These objects can then be migrated along with the users.
Notes for Migrating Resources to GSuite
When migrating resources, only appointments are migrated to the resource within GSuite. When creating a resource only ‘Resource Name’ needs to be provided, ‘Resource Description’ is optional, and ‘Password’ is not relevant.
When a resource is migrated using the CloudMigrator then the ‘Import Name’ becomes the resource ID within GSuite. If resources have been pre-created in GSuite then the resource ID should be extracted from GSuite and specified for the ‘Import Name’. Resource IDs can be found in the GSuite control panel by clicking on a resource name. The ID required is specified in the control panel as ‘Resource identifier’.
- Apps > Gsuite
- Click on Calendar
- Then go to 'Resources'select the Calendar that you need for the Resource ID
- On the left side panel, you will see the actual 'Resource ID' of the Calendar
When resources have been created, they will be allocated an email address, also available from the control panel. This email address allows the resource’s calendar to be added to other user’s calendar lists. Resources can be manipulated in the user list, including importing and exporting in the same way users can.
