How to set creation date

Hi All,

in the process of migrating to EP I am creating lots of resources using the api. The resources are created fine, with all properties according to the legacy system.

Problem is, the creation date of course is set to the time of migration, not the original creation date from the legacy system. I doubt it's possible to modify the creation date using the api - are there any other ways? Direct table update?

Any clues on how to achieve this are welcome, I'll have the same problem when creating versions.

Cheers, Nils

    Hi Nils,

    it's definitely not possible to set the modified date using the API. With some tricks it should be possible to set the creation date, for the ICE http import can do that, too, see - anyhow, you would need to use the ICE service user as the importer (the code hardcoded checks the user, all others are not allowed).

    We have done different migrations into KM and all time have introduced some "old system properties" in an extra property structure group (which won't appear for new documents); by that, the data exists, even if not totally consistent.

    Hope it helps
