Migrate data stored in MBOX files

After uploading the data files to S3, the next step in the process is to migrate the data into Vaultastic accounts using the Historical Data Upload application.

For each ZIP file containing one or more MBOX files, you have to define a separate job. Jobs can be submitted manually using the online form or via a CSV file. Use the help given in the following sections to define your jobs. 

MBOX Job Parameters

When defining jobs to upload MBOX data, the Job type to be selected is MBOX

The parameters to be used when creating the job are as defined in the table below:

FIELD NAME DESCRIPTION SAMPLE VALUE
(TO UPLOAD TO VAULTASTIC)
File name MBOX file name on the S3 bucket
  • It is recommended to convert the MBOX file to the ZIP format before uploading it to Vaultastic
  • Make sure that there are no forward slashes ("/") at the start or end.
"john_smith.zip"
S3 Folder path

The path on the S3 bucket. 

For buckets in your own account, specify the complete path of the S3 bucket with the subfolder. 

If you have uploaded the files to a folder on the S3 bucket in the Mithi account, name of the folder.

(Note: In both the cases, the path should not have the forward slash “/” at the end)

Using your own S3 bucket? 

Enter bucket name: 
<<bucket name> 

Example:

https://s3-ap-southeast-1.amazonaws.com/pst-store/aarav_1549516830472

Using Mithi's S3 bucket?

Enter folder path received in the email to your registered id.

"histdata21082018"

Note: Do not add the '/' character at the end of S3 Folder path and in the beginning of File Name.
Destination user id The user id on the destination Vaultastic or SkyConnect server.
(Note: The id should not contain the domain name.)
"john.smith" (To upload data to john.smith@baya-com.vaultastic.com)
Destination domain Destination domain on Vaultastic or SkyConnect "baya-com.vaultastic.com"
Destination user password Password of the user on Vaultastic or SkyConnect
Destination server Hostname for the domain on Vaultastic or SkyConnect "baya-com.vaultastic.com"
Destination folder Name of the destination folder to be created in the Vaultastic account. Mail will be imported in this folder. This folder will be displayed under INBOX.historical_data.${DESTFOLDER}

 DO NOT use the following reserved names for the name of a Destination folder. (Drafts, Trash, Spam, Chat, Quarantine, Archive).
"Data21082018"
Send report to mail id Email address which will get the notifications "postmaster@baya.com"

CSV file template for multiple MBOX job creation

To upload multiple jobs using a CSV, create a CSV file with a list of all the users and other details required to upload data.

First row of the CSV file should contain field names(use from the sample below) and from second row onward provide the list of users and their details.

Note: Please enclose all fields in double quotes

"jobtype","jobtitle","destuserid","destdomain","destuserpasswd","destServer","destfolder","sendreportid","filename","folderpath"
"MBOX","Upload mbox John Smith","john","baya-com.vaultastic.com","password@1","baya-com.vaultastic.com","DataUpload23022018","postmaster@baya.com","john_mail.zip","baya23022018" 

 Make sure the S3 Folder Path and Destination folder name values do not contain a backslash character (“/”).
