How to Keep the Old Space Key after Converting to Scroll Documents

Migrating a versioned space to the Cloud is a two-step process:

  1. Convert the space to a Scroll Documents-managed space

  2. Migrate that space to the Cloud

As part of the conversion in step 1, the space key will change. This article provides step-by-step instructions on how to convert a versioned or translated space to Scroll Documents while ensuring that the new space retains its old space key.

Before You Start

Before initiating the migration process, please ensure that you have completed the following prerequisites:

  • Generate a migration report and prepare the space for migration. For detailed information, refer to the article: Run the Migration Report

  • Perform at least one test migration and familiarize yourself with the migration path. For more information, see: The Conversion Path
