The below procedure concerns only the migration of data profiling items from versions older than 4.0.0. To migrate your data profiling items from version 4.0.0 onward, you simply need to import them into your current Studio or to import the project itself. For further information, see Importing data profiling items or projects, and How to import local projects.
To migrate data profiling items (analyses, database connections, patterns and indicators, etc.) created in versions older than 4.0.0, do the following:
From the folder of the old version studio, copy the workspace file and paste it in the folder of your current Studio. Accept to replace the current workspace file with the old file.
Launch the Studio connecting to this workspace.
The upgrade operation is completed once the Studio is completely launched, and you should have access to all your data profiling items.
Regarding system indicators during migration, please pay attention to the following:
When you upgrade the repository items to version 4.2 from a prior version, the migration process overwrites any changes you made to the system indicators.
When you upgrade the repository items from version 4.2 to version 5.0 onward, you do not lose any changes you made to the system indicators, the changes are merged.
