General usage notes

  • Run against testing/staging clouds first, verify that you are getting the expected results.

  • Use different ``os_migrate_data_dir`` per project you’re authenticating to. OS Migrate works in project (tenant) scope most of the time. The data dir will be populated with the source project’s exported resources, and should not be mixed with another project’s resources.

    When you are changing os_migrate_src_auth or os_migrate_src_region_name parameters, make sure to also change os_migrate_data_dir.

  • Use the same version of OS Migrate for export and import. We currently do not guarantee that data files are compatible across versions.

  • OS Migrate may not fit each use case out of the box. You can craft custom playbooks using the OS Migrate collection pieces (roles and modules) as building blocks.
