Hi @k_narayana 

Have you looked up how to perform the migration in the documentation?

You have there a step-by-step description of what to do:)


Have a nice day!

Hi @k_narayana ,

The documentation shared by @radek_jasinski is very good and detailed, so definitely have a read at that.

To add some more information on the migration of configurations, you can use the Settings API which will give you JSON structures for the different configurations of your environment, depending on the schema you use. For example, for management zones it would be builtin:management-zones. You can see all the schema, list all the objects and get the JSON for every object individually with the different endpoints described in the link above.


Example workflow:

  • Get all schemas via API https://{your-domain}/e/{your-environment-id}/api/v2/settings/schemas (List schemas)
  • For each schema listed above, get all objects for that schema with https://{your-domain}/e/{your-environment-id}/api/v2/settings/objects (List objects)
  • For each object, get the full details of the object with https://{your-domain}/e/{your-environment-id}/api/v2/settings/objects/{objectId} (View an object)
  • Save the response and push it to your new environment with https://{your-domain}/e/{your-environment-id}/api/v2/settings/objects (Create an object)
