Tzunami Deployer for OpenText Content Server (LiveLink) enables the migration of metadata implemented using the two methods of metadata supported by OpenText LiveLink:

  • OpenText LiveLink 8.x or earlier releases: Additional Nodes Attributes (also called System Attributes).
  • OpenText LiveLink 9.x or later: Categories and Attributes.

Both methods are supported, and allow users to migrate metadata, and properties/columns to the target system. Using Tzunami Deployer, you can easily migrate your OpenText environment to SharePoint products and technologies.
