Scoped view & mapping headers for file shares

Use the following headers when you're creating a CSV file for a scoped view or mapping for a file share migration. Your choice of headers depends on the data you want to migrate.

CSV file format

  • All headers and entries are case-sensitive.
  • When using a mapping CSV file, make sure that the column headers belonging to the source connection are prefixed with Source and the target connection column headers are prefixed with Target.
  • Make sure the character encoding of the CSV file is set to UTF-8.

To map data to a user’s My Drive or to a shared drive, use the GDrive header with one of the following strings:

To map data to a folder inside a user’s My Drive or shared drive, use the GFolder header with the folder’s ID. Find the ID value by navigating to the folder and inspecting the URL. For example, the URL https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/BDEz25J3DzFb has an ID value of BDEz25J3DzFb.

Sub Path To map data to a folder that doesn't currently exist on your Google Workspace domain, use the Sub Path header. Add the path and name of the new folder below. During a migration, Google Workspace Migrate creates the path and folder and migrates the data to the new folder. 

Example
