Importing folder structure to OpenKM server is very easy. Log as okmAdmin and go to Administration > Repository Import. Simply set your folder path origin, and the OpenKM path where folder structure and documents that will be imported.

  • In the screenshot the server path is based on Linux filesystem. Windows users should use Windows OS filesystem path syntax i.e. c:\some_path\...
  • OpenKM import and export features work for the local filesystem, so if you want to import files on another computer you have to copy them to the OpenKM server first.

If you want to import already existing documents into OpenKM, don't check any option. These options are used when you want to import a previously exported repository from OpenKM. If you have exported with the metadata checkbox enabled, you can import the documents and folders with this data (author, creation date, etc.). If you have exported the documents history you can also import all the documents versions with this option.

Nota advertencia.png Keep on mind that the export and import parameters need to be consistent. I mean, if you want to import the documents history you need to make a previous export with this option enabled.
