Task Settings 


To specify the task name and schedule settings for the XPlica migration task, perform the steps given below.

1.

The Task Settings step appears as shown below:

2.

Enter a unique task name in Task Name textbox.

3.

Select a Task Option from one of the following options:

a.     Run later - to run the task later as and when desired.

b.    Run now- to run the task immediately after clicking Finish button.

c.     Schedule- to create a Windows scheduled task. XPlica will create a schedule task in the Windows Scheduled Tasks with the given settings. XPlica will perform the migration based on the Run As user account specified in this wizard step. The Run As account should be a valid Windows domain account.

4.

Select one of the following options to connect to the source and destination SharePoint. The options provided to the user will change depending on the authentication mechanism used by the source and destination SharePoint servers.

 

a.     User Profiles <user name> - This option is available if you choose Run later or Run now or Schedule task option.

b.    This user <user name> - This option is available if you choose Run later or Run now or Schedule task option. XPlica will use stored profile context to connect corresponding SharePoint.

c.     Prompt me for user context at task run time– This option is available if you choose Run later or Run now task option. Select this option if the SharePoint sites are configured to use Windows and/or Forms Authentication only. XPlica will prompt for the user context to use to connect to SharePoint sites when executing XPlica migration task.

d.    Use 'Run As' user context given below– This option will be available if you choose Schedule task option. XPlica will use the user account specified in the scheduled Run As user context to connect to SharePoint. In case, if you decide to use different user context to connect to SharePoint when running the scheduled task, you can do so by storing the SharePoint user context for future use.

e.    Use federated authentication (Web SSO) for the SharePoint site– This option is available if you choose Run later or Run now or Schedule task option. Select this option if the source or destination SharePoint site uses federated identity (Web SSO or Active Directory users configured via ADFS). XPlica will prompt for the user context to use to connect to SharePoint when executing XPlica migration task. To connect to Office 365's SharePoint Online environment, you can use Web Single Sign-on option (Web SSO) for both Cloud Identity (Office 365 Online User Credential e.g., johndoe@vyapin.onmicrosoft.com) and Federated Identity (configured via ADFS e.g., johndoe@vyapin.com).

5.

For Federated authentication (Web Single Sign-on) credential based migration task, the Web Single Sign-on framework expects the username and password to be given by user interactively in browser based login dialog, including schedule tasks. The task settings for Run later or Run now task option will appear as shown below: 



Upon clicking Finish, you will be prompted for credentials (username and password).



Provide username and password in the respective textboxes and click Sign in button to proceed.

The task settings for a Schedule task will appear as shown below:

7.

When using Federated authentication (Web Single Sign-on) option to connect to a SharePoint site, XPlica enables you to setup the migration task using cookie-based persistent connection and shared user credentials technique. XPlica expects the user performing the migration to ensure that a persistent connection is available using the Web Single Sign-on Dashboard tool (Tools -> Web SSO Dashboard menu) that is built into the application. When creating a scheduled migration task, you can use the Web Single Sign-on Dashboard to check the connection status or connect to SharePoint site(s) manually before the task starts to execute at the prescribed date/time. 

To check the connection status in XPlica Task Wizard, click Web SSO Dashboard hyperlink in the screen. The Web Single Sign-on Dashboard screen appears as shown below:



Read Web Single Sign-on Dashboard section for more information.
