How does migration-center do the trick?

With migration-center it is possible to scan an entire file share (as an example) and then exclude all documents you do not want to transfer to the Box cloud (e. g. duplicates, legacy documents or log files).  With the transformation rules, any target metadata set can be achieved and from there, it is an automated process to upload all documents including version in the background into the Box cloud. You can easily re-use all configurations and use the same transformation rules to add more and more different file shares or other source repositories to the Box environment.
