Migrate to Git

Post by Chiramisu » Thu Aug 16, 2018 2:45 pm

Is there a procedure for migrating our repos and version history to Git, such as Github or GitLab, etc.?

If not, can you please explain how we can accomplish this and/or what is possible to migrate?

I have looked at the Export tool, but I do not believe this would meet the need as it only produces a .vfe file which appears to be proprietary.

We do not have an Git export tool available.

To migrate, you will need to perform a recursive Get Latest from root within Vault. This will download all the files you have in your Vault database. You will then have to apply the files to Git, but there will be no history information available. You may want to reach out to Git to see if they have any suggestions.

Thanks,

Tonya

Thank you, and I apologize. I turns out this question has actually been asked. Your searchbar did not find it, but I found it from Google.

Glad you were able to find additional information. The export referred to in the forum post appears to be very old, I would use caution.
