  • Migrate Nitro app between 5.2 and 6

    Our production instance is running version 5.2 and we have succesfully created a test instance in version 6. Since then, we have updated nitro query app and now we are trying to export from Live (5.2) and import into new Test (6). The import of the Nitro app completes, along with the data sources, but when you go to edit it the system just hangs.

    Is there an official way to export a Notro app from 5.2 and import into a version 6 instance?

    Thank You,

    Peter

    Hi Peter, can you try resaving the application in 5.2, exporting again, and then try the import process in 6?

      OK, done just now. I removed Nitro App from Test system and related data sources. Cleared out the Export and Import libraries. Only exported the App rather than individual data sources and the export included all the data sources for that App.

      The import still created corrupted data sources. I realised the App Id imported conflicted with another data source previously in the Test system. So, I removed all Nitro Query data sources and Apps from the test system and imported again. The data sources and App look like they imported fine but the definitions in data sources still don't work and if I try to edit the App, it hangs loading the workspace.

        Hi Peter -

        We will reach out to you to arrange an online meeting whenever you are available so we can take a closer look.

          Hi Sean,

          Sure, this is quite easy to do on our test system.

            I found one problem with the data source import. The file VVDTA300 is not being imported into Version 6 from an export from Version 5.2. There are two additional columns in the new VVDTA300. I copied VVDTA300 records manually and the imported App now works.

            However, it did not import the menu item to call that App. Not sure if this is possible between versions or even between instances of the same version.

              Hi Peter -

              Yes, this normally does import the app record as well. Can you tell us what exact version of 5.2 your are exporting from and what version of 6 you are importing to?

              thanks
