Importing and Exporting Queue items and logs

  • 1.  Importing and Exporting Queue items and logs

    Hi everyone,

    We are migrating between two BP version, but due to infrastructural reasons, we needed to migrate from the current application server to a new one (same for the underlying SQL databases). Therefore, all data from the current environment won't be available in the new environment. Is there however a method to transport some of this queue data to the new environment by means of importing and exporting, similar to releases of processes?

    Hi Jonas there isn't I'm afraid, queue data contains references (eg to processes and resources) that will not be present in the new DB.

    One possible technique is to copy the original DB into the new infra. The advantage is that you won't lose data but the disadvantage is that you will need to clean the data, eg mark old resource PCs as retired, delete unwanted session logs etc.

    Creating a new DB means that you are making a fresh start, but at the cost of losing historical data.
