Advanced options for Google Vault - Source Platform

While the default options are recommended for the majority of organisations, CloudM Migrate gives users the ability to customise their migration experience. The following are some of the Advanced Options available to customers migrating from Google Vault. Changing some of these options will change the way data is migrated.


  • Polling Interval – The interval in minutes used to poll for the status of an export. Vault exports can take some time to generate depending on the amount of data they contain. Once created, CloudM Migrate polls and sleeps using this value until the exports have completed.
  • Mail Search Term – Mail Search term used to narrow or broaden the export search. See
  • Drive Search Term - Drive Search term used to narrow or broaden the export search.
  • Chat Search Term - Chat Search term used to narrow or broaden the export search.
  • Concurrent Export Limit This will be used to limit the number of exports created at the same time per machine, and is set to 2 as default. It is designed to stop the migration exceeding Google's export API quota. 
  • Concurrent Download Limit – The number of exports downloadable at the same time. As the export files can be quite large, this setting is used to limit disk usage to prevent a system running out of disk space.
  • Search Timezone – The default timezone to use when building export search. See
  • Preserve Matters On Completion - Preserve the Google Vault Matters created during the export process on migration completion (Success or Failure). This setting can be used to diagnose issues with exports, but should remain false at all other times.

Mail Archive

  • Archive Label Method – specify how labels or folders will be used when migrating archives:
    • Specified Label – use the label or folder specified by the setting below
    • Email Labels – when migrating from mbox files exported by Google Vault then use the headers in the emails to determine the destination label/folder.
  • Archive Label – specify the label or folder that migrated messages will be placed into when using ‘Specified Label’ for the option below.


  • Special Folder Names – If using Email labels to determine the destination folder or label, then use these names to determine if the folder is a special folder.
  • Auto Generate Missing Message IDs – Use automatically generated message IDs for any messages that do not contain a message ID
  • Export Spam Emails - By default, CloudM Migrate will not migrate any emails that have been marked as SPAM. However, if you want to export these emails, you can enable this setting (only when migrating from Google Vault to Microsoft 365). All SPAM emails will be migrated to a target folder named "Spam". Please note that if you have a lot of SPAM emails, this may cause your migrations to take longer.


  • Migrate Chat History - Migrate Google Chat messages to the destination system. In the destination, migrated chat messages appear as email messages.
  • Migrated Chat Label - The label to apply to migrated chat messages.
