The view is the visual representation of the authorization structure, once the read (initial state) and after the “Design & Work” the planned authorization structure (new state).
The “View initial state” is the only component of the project type “Migration per Scan”. It shows the authorization structure of a read Windows-Share.
After reading the output directory, migRaven lands in the View – initial state.
You can move on the left side by the directory structure. On the right hand side you see the authorized groups and accounts and their rights for a directory selected on the left hand side. Below that you can display the members of the groups, the accounts, you may change or all members entitled to this directory.
The first step in the table mode is the mapping of permissions.
Only then can you fill your table to set permissions.
The data is inserted here depending on the type of project. In case of “Scan Your resources“, the data is taken over from the initial state with the help of the button “Start filling”. The excel tables can be read in the “Import or create a table” and “Novell-migration“.
Further in all the types of projects it is possible to manually insert rows and change values. Here you must pay attention to the syntax of the field content and the column headers.
After scanning your shares the permission mapping table is displayed, if in the scanned share permissions were found, which deviate from the standard permissions. These permissions can be converted into standard permissions through the mapping table.

Under Novell one can place permissions (Trusts) on other objects than only on users or groups. We integrated an intelligent role mining mechanism into migRaven, which guarantees that no information is lost, but all translated into suitable permission group structures, which corresponds with Microsoft Best Practice.
The Drag & Drop mode stands out because of the fact that the user- and group-names do not need to be written manually any more. To set permissions, you can search objects like users or groups in the AD, put them in a clipboard, and then draw from there or from anywhere in the current tree to any folder in the new draft, therefore “Drag and Drop”.
There are two possibilities to generate the directories for the future folder structure:
Since version 3.1, migRaven features the additional Drag & Drop mode for allocating permissions. The “Table Mode” is well known, in which the objects to be permitted are entered in the table. The new mode stands out especially by the fact that the user- and group names do not need to be written any more. One can select objects in the AD, park them in an intermediate repository and from there draw them over from any directory of the initial position to a target directory.
