Value Maps are used by Settings Templates to transform source object attributes to new values during migration.

Value Maps are typically a two-column table with the source value in the first column and the target value in the second. 

Note: Value mappings can easily be uploaded in a CSV format

Value Map types

The Transformation Suite allows users to configure five types of Value mapping:

NameDescription
UserPlease consult the Value Map - Users documentation
LocationPlease consult the Value Map - Locations documentation
URLURL mappings transform links encountered during migration. URL mapping is required to correct links that point to locations outside the scope of the migration.
RolesRole mappings transform roles encountered during migration. For example, the Full Control role in a SharePoint server is equivalent to the owner role in G Suite, and can be mapped by creating a CSV file with "Full Control" in the first column, and "owner" in the second. 
GUIDGUID mappings transform unique identifiers encountered during migration.
