We are forced to use the migration strategy when upgrading Blue Prism because we need the following features.

  • The original environment can remain operational during the upgrade (Fallback!)
  • Advantage of a clean start (Performance!)
  • NO Downtime is required to perform the upgrade (Stability!)

 But there is some potential for optimization with the migration strategy.

  • Please add a feature to Blue Prism Automate for exporting and importing credentials.
    • The passwords should be encrypted for security reason.
    • There need to be the same encryption key in the target environment.
    • After the import another encryption key can be generated to re-encrypt all credentials and the old credential key could be deleted.
  • Please add a feature to Blue Prism Automate for exporting and importing work queue items.
    • When encryption is used the transport of affected information should be encrypted at export.
    • The encryption key for the work queue need to be transferrable / reusable in the target system.
    • After the transfer of the data the old encryption scheme should be replaceable by a new one.
The main benefits of these features are...
  • Safe and secure transfer of credentials and work queue items on migration.
  • More flexibility for switching between environments outside of migrations.
  • Less effort for building and maintaining workarounds when trying to create an alternative transfer solution.
Thanks in advance :-)
