Exporting a list of unmanaged objects for import over M-Files Importer

Hi there

Short Summary

We are looking for a way to export all entries of "unmanaged objects" with the IDs.

Import Scenario
We want to import documents from the current file server. For this we use "M-Files Importer". We saw that M-Files Importer supports the functionality of importing files through the "M-Files Network Folder Connector". Now we want to run the import through the Connector with the M-Files Importer creating an ideal scenario.
The Problem
Importing a file throught the network folder connector needs the repository object ID (-1008). We thought we found the ID when we exported the unmanaged objects through search. However when we run the fully configured M-Files importer it fails at the repository object ID.
From what we've gathered the object ID should be the file path adjusted to the Connector configuration. This is based on the export of unmanged object through the M-Files client.
Values from the ID column:
  • F:01_administration\00_gründung\namen\dimora-condimora-200911.xls
  • F:01_administration\00_gründung\namen\dimora-condimora-prodimora-adimora 200911.xls
  • F:01_administration\00_gründung\namen\domains-200801.doc
  • F:01_administration\00_gründung\namen\namensvorschläge.doc
What we need
We need a way to create or access the repository object ID. So we can import the files through the connector.
Thanks in advance!
