Configure the default settings to apply to the user accounts that you migrate

Before you select the user accounts that you want to migrate, you can configure the default settings that you want to apply to the user accounts during the migration process. These settings include the group, IT policy, and software configuration that you want to apply to the user accounts, and the destination BlackBerry Enterprise Server that you want to associate the users with.

Another option is to select the user accounts that you want to move and then apply different settings to specific user accounts. For more information, see Configure the default settings to apply to specific user accounts.

  • In the destination domain, create the group, IT policy, and software configuration that you want to apply to the user accounts.
  • Configure the source domain and the destination domain.
  1. In the BlackBerry Enterprise Transporter, in the Step 3: Manifest Configuration section, in the Summary section, click Details.
  2. In the Default Destination Assignments section, in the drop-down lists, click the default BlackBerry Enterprise Server, group, IT policy, and software configuration that you want to apply to the user accounts during the migration process.
  3. Select the Use current defaults for all new entries check box.
  4. Click Done.
To apply different default settings to specific user accounts, clear the Use current defaults for all new entries check box and see Configure the default settings to apply to specific user accounts.

Using the BlackBerry Enterprise Transporter, you can apply software configurations and IT policies directly to user accounts. You can also assign user accounts to groups that are associated with existing software configurations and IT policies. The BlackBerry Administration Service uses preconfigured rules that give priority to user-assigned software configurations and IT policies over the software configurations and IT policies that you assign to groups. If you want the group-assigned software configurations and IT policies to take precedence, remove the user-assigned software configurations and IT policies from the user accounts. For more information about reconciliation rules, see the BlackBerry Enterprise Server for Microsoft Office 365 Administration Guide.

Select the user accounts that you want to move to the destination domain.
