Migration Types

Migration jobs can be divided on the way they migrate data. Each type may have different procedures for migrating data.

This type of migration jobs transfers data between the database and files. The data can be imported to the a single database logical unit or to a data migration container table (IC Table). You can export the data form multiple logical units to a single file.

This type of migration jobs can be used to migrate data from one data source to another. The source can be a TABLE, VIEW, JOIN, DB LINK or UNION, while destination can be a single or multiple logical units in the database.

This type of migration job can be used to migrate data between Microsoft Excel (using the IFS Excel Add-In) and the database. Data can be both queried from and saved into single or multiple logical units.

Use this type when you need to export/import migration jobs between IFS Application instances.
