Hi Team,

Is anyone aware how to do a migration of models to ARD Hub? Have seen the documentation for ARD and it mentions bulk uploading using client but it doesn't solve the requirement of migrating existing folder structures and the flows/sub-flows stored in nested folders.

PS: About 7000+ Models are to be uploaded

Hi SatParkash,

If you are using the latest release of ARD Hub (3.1) you can d the following to import the flows into ARD Hub:

Import Flows
You can import individual flows, or multi-select to import several flows together. You can also split up larger migrations into several smaller batches. The migration imports the master flows that you selected explicitly, and also subflows that the master flows depend on implicitly. If there are conflicts (for example, if two different versions of the same subflow are linked) both versions are imported, and the second copy is automatically renamed. The migration log alerts you to those cases, so you can decide how you want to resolve them after the migration.

Note: When you are using the Migration Service Beta to migrate large flows, increase your JVM memory to between 8 and 12 GB. For more information, see Upgrade, Reconfigure, or Back Up ARD Hub.

Follow these steps:
  1. Open ARD Studio.
  2. Log into the ARD Hub connector.
  3. Click Create Project in the Connectors Dock to set up your destination project structure, or choose an existing project. For more information, see Manage Flow Projects in ARD Hub.
  4. Click Migrate Existing Flows in the Connectors Dock.
  5. Choose one of the following import sources:
    • Click the + Local Directory button and select one or more flows to migrate.
    • Click the + TDM Repository button and select one or more flows to migrate.
  6. Select a target project, version, and folder into which you want to migrate the flows.
  7. Enable Generate images after migration to generate the flow previews.
  8. (Optional) Enable Update flows already existing in the destination
  9. Click Start Import. A log window opens.
  10. Wait for the migration to complete, or click Cancel migration if you decide to migrate smaller batches.
    Important: Do not close ARD Studio while a migration is in progress.
  11. Review the log to verify successful migration. You can copy the log into your clipboard for reference. The master flows and subflows are saved to the selected Hub folder
