Migrating resources from 1.x Remote services to Publishing Document Builder
In version 2.1.1 and later, the Remote services are deprecated. You can migrate your resources from the Remote services server to Publishing Document Builder after upgrading.
Before you begin
- Upgrade IBM Engineering Lifecycle Optimization - Publishing (PUB) and deploy Publishing Document Builder.
- Remote Services 1.x should be up and running.
- style sheets
Resources owners are retained in Publishing Document Builder as long as the owner is a valid user in Publishing Document Builder. For example, if Requirements template from Remote Services 1.x is owned by the user Bob, this template is added to Publishing Document Builder with Bob as owner. If the owner does not exist in Publishing Document Builder, it will still be migrated with the same username. These resources can be migrated manually by the new owner.
In the product banner, click Migrate resources.
Tip: If you do not see this button, you can enable it by checking the ENABLE_ASSET_MIGRATION checkbox on the Runtime variables tab.
- Enter the URL to the Remote services application, for example https://server:port/rpews.
- Enter your username and password.
- Click Migrate.
When the migration is complete, you can see the results of the migration. Any resources that
failed the migration attempt are listed at the top.
For resources that were not migrated, click the Download link to download the resource to your system. You can then add the resource to Publishing Document Builder manually on the Resources tab by clicking Upload resources.
