tools/import-paperless can be used to get started by
importing your data from paperless into docspell.
The script imports the files and also tags and correspondents.
Copy the script to the machine where paperless is running. Run it with the following arguments:
db.sqlite3). When using Paperless with docker, it is in the mapped directory
Some settings can be changed inside the script, right at the top:
LIMIT="LIMIT 0" (default: inactive): For testing purposes, limits
the number of tags and correspondents read from Paperless (this will
most likely lead to warnings when processing the documents)
LIMIT_DOC="LIMIT 5" (default: inactive): For testing purposes,
limits the number of documents and document-to-tag relations read
SKIP_EXISTING_DOCS=true (default: true): Won't touch already
existing documents. If set to
false documents, which exist
already, won't be uploaded again, but the tags, correspondent, date
and title from Paperless will be applied.
Warning In case you already had set these information in Docspell, they will be overwritten!
