Migration Vault

Features in this section are new features for Migration Vault.

Limiting Loads per Study 23R3.2

This feature restricts the number of loads that can be created per Study, ensuring the system doesn’t upload more data than it can manage without impacting performance and/or stability.

Use Case

Restricting the number of loads helps alleviate concerns regarding system storage limitations.

Enablement

This feature is automatically enabled and has no dependencies. Business Administrators can override default limit values with new ones, if desired.

Retrying the Validate & Stage Step 23R3.2

This feature introduces a retry policy for the Validate & Stage step of the Migration workflow. If a connection is lost or a timeout occurs during the Stage phase, Migration Vault continues with the load from where it left off without staging duplicate records.

Use Case

This feature ensures that retries are maximized across migrations and prevents the staging of duplicate records.

Enablement

Only Business Administrators can retry the Validate & Stage step.

General Enhancements - Validating Dates 23R3.2

Previously, if a user did not validate improperly formatted dates, the events would fail and not be staged. When this occurred, no notification was provided to the user. Now users are notified when an improper date format causes an event to not be staged.

Use Case

This feature allows staging issues to be addressed promptly via notifications, enhancing the user’s experience.

Enablement

This feature is automatically enabled and has no dependencies.

Migrations Report - Error Stats 23R3.2

The Migration Report now includes a spreadsheet tab with a summary of all load errors. The new Error Stats tab lists all error types, when they occurred, and the count.

Use Case

This feature presents an overview of all errors associated with a load, providing a summary of the overall “health” of the migration.

Enablement

This feature is automatically included in the Migration Report. There are no dependencies.

Project Consistency Across Loads 23R3.2

This feature uses verification methods to ensure consistency across projects, regardless of the study, customer, or migrator. The first method verifies if an attributes file is missing and gives users an opportunity to add it. The second method ensures users have selected the correct source data and target vault to avoid migrating the wrong source data to the wrong vault.

Use Case

By verifying the attributes file, users are given a final opportunity to add an attributes file in the event one is missing. Assigning and verifying types (DEV/TST/PRD) across loads ensures that a migrated study uses the correct collection of source data and YAMLs for a load.

Enablement

This feature is automatically enabled and has no dependencies.
