mass upload folders with properties

i have to upload a structure with about 800 folders including documents to km. additionally i have to set versioning, workflow and subscription for each folder according to a matrix in excel.

i know upload could be done via webdav, but then i cannot set the properties.

what would be the best way to upload the data and how much complicated is that?

thanks!

    Hi,

    U may try to copy all files to local folder on server machine, write some service which reads that matrix(export from excel for example to CSV, i dont know if it is possible to read xls easy) and use KM api to upload and set properties of that files.

    Hi Matthias, hi JJ,

    as JJ stated, you will have to do this (setting versioning etc) programatically. It's the same thing that I've already stated in another thread - there are no automatisms for activating these services.

    In addition to JJs proposal, you can access xls file quite comfortable via POI-HSSF, see http://jakarta.apache.org/poi/hssf/index.html

    The upload itself you can do via WebDAV or programatically, as you like it (if you don't have needed advantages by doing it programatically, WebDAV will be the easier way).

    Hope it helps
