Hi,
I came across this warning while running a test migration (see below). All of these groups have an assigned base folder. Should I disable them? Are group assignments automatically migrated also or need to be reassigned after migration?

"These Groups have Starting Page and/or Base Folder associations to assets that are going to be migrated. These associations will be cleared out. "

Thanks for your help.

    Hi,

    The Starting Page and Base Folder settings at the Group level are only applicable to the Global area (sort of a legacy setting once you are migrated to Sites). This message is indicating that these Assets are being migrating into a Site and they will no longer exist within the Global area, because they will no longer exist within the Global area these settings for the Group(s) will be cleared. Once you are migrated to the Site, there are Starting Page and Asset Factory Container settings for you to set at the Site level.

    Are group assignments automatically migrated also or need to be reassigned after migration?

    Are you referring to the Users that are assigned to the Group? If so, these assignments will remain. Once the Site has been created you will set up the Site Roles, which allow you to specify what Groups an/or individual Users will be able to access and do within the Site.

    Please let me know if you have any questions.

    Thanks
