Data - Device Migration Report

The Data - Device Migration report exports a CSV file containing device information for the specified date range and site. The output conforms to the Vocera devices import template (although it has an additional field, User). The report allows you to migrate your device information into the Device Management solution provided by Version 4.4. After you create the report, fill in any empty fields (such as Label, Status, Owning Group, and Tracking Date), and then use theAdministration Console to update the system data. For more information about importing and updating Vocera data, see the Vocera Administration Guide and the Vocera Data-Loading Reference.

The following table describes the report columns:

Table 1. Data - Device Migration report
Column Description
BadgeMACAddr Media Access Control address (MAC address) is a hardware address that acts like a unique name for the device. The MAC address is 12 characters long. Most Vocera device MAC addresses have the following prefix: 0009ef.

For B3000 and B2000 devices, this field is optional because the MAC address can be derived from the serial number; the last 6 characters of the MAC address and the serial number are identical.

For B1000A devices, this field is required; the MAC address and serial number are unrelated for B1000A badges.

SerialNo Serial number of the device. This field is required. You cannot add a device without the serial number.

For B3000 and B2000 badges, the serial number is 12 characters. For B1000A badges, the serial number is 15 characters.

Label A label that identifies the device. The label must be unique; it cannot be used by another device.
Status The device status. The value must match one of the existing device status values.
TrackingDate The date used to track the device, for example, the date it was sent for repair or RMA'ed. The date string uses the following format:

United States and Canada: mm/dd/yyyy
Other locales: dd/mm/yyyy

OwningGroup The group that owns the device. To qualify a group by specifying its site, use a colon to separate the value from the site name (GroupName:SiteName). If you do not specify a site, the Global site is assumed by default.
Notes Provide further information about the device status, for example, "Badge stopped working after accidentally being immersed in water" or "Badge sent to IT to repair the battery latch."
UserSiteName The site of the user who last used the device.
Shared Specify TRUE if the device is shared between multiple users. Otherwise, specify FALSE.
UserName User who last used the device.
