Getting Started with the Migration Collections


The approach to migrating configuration changes in version 7.5 has changed in many ways compared to earlier versions.

A new application named Migration Collections is introduced that enables developers to stage configuration changers, validate and push the contents of a collection into the Migration Manager application, where you then create the package and subsequently migrate to the target environment.

  • Migration Collection is a bridge between development configurations and Migration Manager
  • Migration Collection enables developers to stage configurations, validate and push the contents of a collection into the Migration Manage
  • Migration Collection streamlines the development effort by reducing or eliminating wasteful manual approach to identifying and organizing configurations.

Every migration collection has a name and an owner. A migration collection can be shared (public) or managed by individual (private). Collection entries can be added or removed in three different ways:
