Migration Procedure for Transformations After IAP Upgrade
This guide covers how to migrate a JSON Schema Transformation (JST) after upgrading Itential Automation Platform (IAP) to the most current available version.
Before upgrading IAP it is imperative that the database be backed up. The backup is best performed using the mongodbdump utility, which creates a binary export of the database contents. The instructions for using the mongodump utility can be found in the mongodump documentation.
The procedure for upgrading IAP can be found on the Itential document repository. Click the link to access the documentation: IAP Upgrade Docs.
Make sure to verify that all the correct dependency packages have been installed. The correct versions are listed in the Version Verification section of the upgrading procedures guide.
Importing Transformations to Upgraded IAP
Importing transformations is actually a two-step process. First you will need to export your JST. Once the export file is saved you can import the JST back into the upgraded version of IAP.
Export and Save the JST
