[RESOURCES] It’s obvious that Magento database itself and migration is a complicated process.
We are lucky to have chance to work on pretty much Magento data migration projects so far. And we run across various questions users had raised to us, from real use cases with our migration tool.
We find that many users share such common questions, so we made it into a FAQs and would like to share here.
Hope you find this FAQs helpful. Here you can find the full list of questions and answers: http://www.slideshare.net/ubertheme/ub-data-migration-pro-for-magento-2-faqs
Just want to add an additional note that even though the FAQs is specific for our migration tool, yet it's still helpful in case you use other migration tool at your choice. It will reveal some aspects you should take into consideration before starting migration project.
A few questions you will find in the FAQs:
Hope that helps.
Oct 10, 2016 Update: We've just released a big update UB Data Migration Pro v3. It now supports delta migration, Command-Line Interface and much more. So some of our old FAQs mentioned above are out of date.
PS. With the new V3 version, you no longer need a fresh Magento 2 instance. It's possible to migrate into a M2 instance with existing data.
