|Database migration||You must migrate your Oracle Database Classic Cloud Service on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic (if any) to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.||Migrate Databases Using the Migration Tools|
About the Migration Task Flow
You use a snapshot to migrate an Oracle Data Visualization Cloud Service instance to Oracle Analytics Cloud on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Before you start the migration, you need to prepare and set up a target Oracle Analytics Cloud instance on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Here's what you need to do.
Prepare to Migrate
|Plan your new service||Plan your Oracle Analytics Cloud deployment on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Think about what you want before you start.|
|Complete your order and sign in to your Oracle Cloud account||
You must have a subscription for Oracle Analytics Cloud (or Oracle Analytics Cloud Subscription) to create services on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
As Cloud Account Administrator, you can complete all setup tasks.
|Create a service on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure||Create an Oracle
Analytics Cloud instance with the required size and shape on Oracle Cloud
If you subscribe through Universal Credits, create the service with Oracle Analytics Cloud.
If you have a non-metered subscription, create the service with Oracle Analytics Cloud Subscription.
|Verify your service||Verify that your service is up and running and that you can sign in.||Verify Your Service and Sign In|
|Migrate users and roles||Migrate users and roles from your traditional Oracle Data Visualization Cloud Service account.|
|Add the IP address of your service to allowlists||If you registered the IP of your Oracle Data Visualization Cloud Service instance in any data source allowlists, you must perform this task again for the new Oracle Analytics Cloud instance on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.||Find the IP or Host Name of Your Oracle Analytics Cloud Instance|
Migrate Your Service
|Understand snapshot options||Understand what you can include or exclude when you take a snapshot.|
|Check that your target is ready for migration and take a backup||Verify that the required users and roles are available in your target service and take a snapshot in case you need to roll back.||Back Up Your Target Service Before Migration|
Take a snapshot of the source
Capture the content you want to migrate on the source system.
Download the snapshot
Download the snapshot that you want to migrate to your local file system.
Import the snapshot to the target
Sign in to the target system and import the snapshot.
Restore the snapshot content
Select the newly uploaded snapshot in the list of saved snapshots and restore the content in the snapshot.
After restoring the snapshot you must perform additional tasks to complete the migration. For example, you must migrate data files, verify application role assignments, and more.
Migrate data files
Use the Data Migration utility to migrate and restore data files from another environment.
|Verify application role assignments||Verify that users and groups in your target service have the correct application roles in Oracle Analytics Cloud.|
|Reconfigure search crawl users||Change the name of the users configured to index catalog content.|
|Verify and configure service settings||Check that your safe domains are configured correctly. Optionally, configure new options of your service, such as a virus scanner, or maps and extensions for your data visualizations.|
Complete Post-Migration Tasks
|Test the migrated service||Check that the content you migrated is available on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure and everything works as you expect.||Test the Migrated Service Instance|
|Clean up services on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure Classic||Remove any resources that you don't need.||Clean Up Infrastructure and Platform Resources in Oracle Data Visualization Cloud Service|
About the Migration Tooling
You use a snapshot to migrate your Oracle Data Visualization Cloud Service instance to Oracle Analytics Cloud on Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. In certain situations, you might also use the Data Migration Utility.
- Snapshots: Migrates your content, file-based data, application role assignments, and other settings from your Oracle Data Visualization Cloud Service instance to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure.
- Data Migration Utility: Migrates your file-based data to Oracle Cloud Infrastructure. Only required if network connectivity or storage access issues prevents data file migration with the snapshot.
