Setting up the Egnyte source connector


The legacy tool no longer supports Egnyte connectors. Use Migration Manager for migrating from Egnyte.

Egnyte FAQ

What is different about Egnyte?

Unlike other cloud storage providers, Egnyte has a Shared folder and a Private folder. When migrating from Egnyte, our app defaults to the Private folders when autocompleting the user to user migration setup.

How will my paths look when Egnyte is my source?

During the migration setup (described later in this guide), you can edit the path(s) to specify where in Egnyte you want the data to go. From the root level of Egnyte, you can go into /Private that lists the individual users and their data, or /Shared which is the main shared data repository.

Most cloud storage providers, Egynte, for example, start the listing with a user such as / data. Egnyte does not do this, so you would be looking at a path such as /Shared/marketing data if it's a Shared folder, or /Private/example/marketing data if it's a Private folder.
