Migration of Classical and ICO scenarios to IFlows


We all know we can migrate the dual stack classical scenario’s to integrated configuration objects(ICO) using migration tool, PI 7.31 SP16 or PI 7.4 SP11 on wards we can also migrate classical scenarios to IFlows using migration tool and if you have any integrated configuration objects in your system you can also change them to IFlows in eclipse, In this blog i will show you how we can do this conversion.

Migration of Classic Scenario to IFlow using Migration Tool

I have below classical scenario in my dual stack PI system/wp-content/uploads/2016/01/classic_864798.png

Open migration tool in the target PI system( pimon-> Configuration and Administration->Common->Migration Tool). Click on Scenario Migration

Select source and target systems and give the user name and passwords and click next.


Search the scenario which you want to migrate


In the next screen select the check box ‘Migrate to IFlow’

In the next screen observe the names that created in the target system, if you want you can change the names and click next.


Click on create button to start the conversion.


In the next screen you can see the log related to conversion process.


Open eclipse and connect to your PO system, open Process Integration Designer perspective and you can find the change list related to IFlow which we created.


After we activate the change list, The IFlow can appear under Integration Flows.

You can find below the IFlow which we created.

Migration of ICO scenario to IFlow using Eclipse

If you have any ICO’s in your target system(PI single stack or PO system), these ICO’s we can convert to IFlows in Eclipse. I got below ICO in my PO system.


Open eclipse Process Integration Designer perspective and connect to PO system, Go to Process Integration->Generate Integration Flows->Integrated Configuration as shown below.


In the next screen it will show all the integrated configurations in the system, select the ICO which you want to convert to IFlow.


In the next screen change the names like IFlow name and click on finish.


You can see the log whether the conversion successful or any errors.



Using migration tool we can convert classic configuration to IFlow and using Eclipse we can convert ICO to IFlow. i hope this helps.

      Hi Praveen,

      I have tried migrating my classical scenario to iflow following the steps mentioned in your blog but i not able to deploy the iflow, the deployment trace error as shown below:

      ERROR: Change list could not be activated
      DEBUG: Change list reverted
      ERROR: Error during deployment: Change list activation failed; Integration Flow is in inconsistent state

      Have you encounter this error before?

      Please try to create the ICO manually in Integration Directory. Then create iflow from nwds against the ICO.
