We recently released a new version of the bcpChecker. The bcpChecker allows you to open a Vault BCP package and navigate through the content in a Vault-similar UI. This saves you a ton of time and headaches when you are working on a Vault migration project.
The new version let’s you navigate also through items, BOMs and links, additionally to folders and files. This way, you can check the quality and structure of your BCP package before you start a 10+ hours import into Vault. Thus you can check for correct categories, lifecycle, states, properties, folder structure, file naming, etc. You basically see the outcome of the import before you start the import.
In the current release you can also check if a file exists for all entries in you BCP package, and so avoid annoying errors during the import. Also, you can get a report of all used behaviors and check against your Vault whether you really have defined all the properties, life-cycles, categories, etc. that are required for a correct import of the BCP package.
Beyond the visual checks you could also perform some queries and verify that all references can be resolved, all items have appropriate files, etc. Or you may correct some smaller issues by manipulating the BCP package and re-export the corrected version.
So, in case you plan to perform a migration to Vault using the Vault BCP, which we can only suggest, take a look at the bcpChecker. It will save you stress and will help even your customer to see the actual end-result before the import really starts.
