Scoped view & mapping headers

Google Workspace to Google Workspace migration

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

CSV file format

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