How to mass change a property

What is the best practice for mass-changing e.g. 10.000 existing document setting the default vault of a newly introduced property - or e.g. replacing choosing user account property by choosing employee object where the formerly chosen user account is assigned to.

I would open a script console and write a sql like skript for example but how to? A little tool using REST API would be a solution - but perhaps with low code interface like in CK module Managed properties?

  • These internal tools are often built for a specific purpose, are often not production-quality, or may be potentially quite destructive.  In the case of this tool, it is one that can - by its very nature - make a significant volume of changes across a vault, so care is needed to make sure that it's not misused.

    Partners can speak to their Channel Account Manager who may be able to suggest some tools on a case-by-case basis.



  • I remember as I worked together with the German ERP software vendor proALPHA. They work with Progress and have a menu entry called "procedure call" where you can type in some scripts directly or load a presaved script programm e.g. for updates. I loved that simple way to change things.
