Profile Manager

Use this tool to create a user profile in Windows Stored User Names and Passwords applet, in order to specify the user context to run Dockit migration tasks. The stored user profile will be very useful when you are trying to perform the following migration tasks in scheduled manner using Dockit:

  • Migrating content from SharePoint 2003 / 2007 / 2010 / 2013 / 2016 environment to SharePoint 2007 / 2010 / 2013 / 2016 environment
  • Migrating content between two different SharePoint 2007 / 2010 / 2013 / 2016 server farms
  • Migrating content between two different Windows Domain Forest
  • Migrating content using Laptop / PC that is not part of the SharePoint domain

The stored user profile persists for all subsequent logon sessions on the same computer where Dockit is installed. The stored user profiles are visible to other logon sessions on the same computer.

The stored user profile created by using Dockit Profile Manager is restricted to the Windows User Profile context. If the Windows User Profile is maintained locally, Dockit stored user profile is accessible only by the same user in the same computer. If the user who creates Dockit stored user profile, has a Roaming user account in the enterprise, the Dockit stored user profile can be accessed by the same user in any computer in the Windows enterprise.

The stored user profile is a generic credential of Windows Stored User Names and Passwords applet and can be used by Dockit application only. The credential information is stored securely in an 256 bit encrypted format in Windows Stored User Names and Passwords applet.
