  • 1.  Migrating BAW on-premise to ICP4BA OCP

    Posted Wed April 05, 2023 03:20 PM


    How can I migrate on-premise BAW 22.0.2 to BAW (part of ICP4BA 22.0.2) on OCP? I am not seeing any documentation related to this. Is this possible? any pointers?

    Hi Nintin,

    there is no dedicated documentation on moving BAW from a traditional deployment to a container based BAW deployment which is part of CP4BA running on OCP. That said, you should find all related information in the BAW docs, which has dedicated sections on moving to a container runtime as well as moving your authoring environment to containers.
    Have you checked out for example

    Please keep in mind that you'll not be able to move inflight BPMN Workflows from traditional to containers. The approach here is to use the process federation service (PFS) to generate unified work lists for processes running on the traditional environment and ones already running on containers. So for the existing BPMN processes on the traditional env it would be a sort of a dry off migration.

    In case you have particular questions on this topic, please don't hesitate to get in touch here.

    Best regards,

    Hi @Michael Kirchner, I'm interested into this topic too. How about the "docs" embedded object store move? Is there more information on this? Due to the "inflight" workflows federation, I think that likely the trad "docs" embedded object store should be kept alive too, until the drain completes. Am I right? I'd like to hear your opinion on this. 
    Thanks, L.
