3 Migration Reports

This chapter describes the Oracle Communications Pricing Design Center (PDC) Migration Reports.

For information about pricing data migration, see "Migrating Pricing Data to PDC With RRE and BRE" and "Migrating Pricing Data to PDC With ECE".

About Migration Reports

For every migration process, PDC migration utility generates the following reports at different stages:

The migration reports are stored in the report directory location specified in the BRM_Integration_Pack_Home/apps/migration/MigrateConfiguration.xml configuration file.

Analysis Reports

The analysis reports are generated during the data analysis phase of the migration. The reports list the data configurations that are not supported in PDC and that will be modified by the migration utility during the migration process and any data configurations that you need to change manually. Each object in the report is associated with an error message that describes the reason for the error and how to fix it and one of the following severity types:

  • Critical: Indicates that the object configuration is invalid or not supported in PDC. You must manually fix these object configurations in the BRM database.

  • User input: Indicates that the migration utility requires more information about the object configuration to make adjustments. You must provide the required information in XML format.

  • Warning: Indicates that the object will be skipped and not migrated to PDC or the data will be migrated to PDC with changes to some attributes.

  • Info: Indicates that the object will be modified by the migration utility during the migration process.

For the configuration migration process, only one analysis report is generated.

For the pricing migration process, separate analysis reports are generated for the product, discount, sponsorship, and subscription objects. You need to review all four analysis reports to fix any critical or user input errors. The reports include links to detailed reports that contain the list of the BRM objects with errors.

Figure 3-1 shows a sample product analysis output for the rate plan object.

Compatibility Reports

The compatibility reports are generated during the data migration phase of the migration. The reports list the data configurations that are not supported in ECE and that will be modified by the migration utility during the migration process and any data configurations that you need to change manually. Each object in the report is associated with an error message that describes the reason for the error and how to fix it and one of the following severity types:

  • Critical: Indicates that the object configuration is invalid or not supported in ECE. You must manually fix these object configurations in the BRM or PDC database.

  • User input: Indicates that the migration utility requires more information about the object configuration to make adjustments. You must provide the required information in XML format.

  • Warning: Indicates that the object will be skipped and not migrated to PDC or the data will be migrated to PDC with changes to some attributes.

  • Info: Indicates that the object will be modified by the migration utility during the migration process.

For the configuration migration process, only one compatibility report is generated.

For the pricing migration process, separate compatibility reports are generated for the product, discount, sponsorship, and subscription objects. You need to review all four compatibility reports to fix any critical or user input errors. The reports include links to detailed reports that contain the list of the BRM or PDC objects with errors.

Migration Report

A migration report is generated at the end of a migration process.

For each object type in the migration process, the report lists the BRM object name, PDC object name, PDC internal ID, transformation message, and severity.

In addition, the report provides the following information:

  • The total number of BRM or PDC objects

  • The total number of objects migrated

  • The total number of objects skipped

Only one migration report is generated for the configuration migration process and separate reports for the product, discount, sponsorship, and subscription objects are generated for the pricing migration process.

Process Report

A process report is generated after the migration utility completes the BRM pricing object modifications for transformation to the PDC data model.

The report lists all the pricing objects that were modified, created, or duplicated by the migration utility.

Note:

A process report is not generated for the subscription objects.

Reconciliation Reports

The reconciliation reports are generated at the end of the pricing migration process.

Separate reconciliation reports for product, discount, sponsorship, and subscription objects are generated.

The report provides the following information:

  • The number of BRM or PDC objects before migration

  • The number of BRM objects created in the source database

  • The number of BRM objects modified in the source database

  • The total number of BRM objects migrated

Status Report

A status report is generated after you run the migration utility to import data to the production systems.
