Latest migration assessment and migration tool features
I would like to give you an update of the new features that we have lately shipped enhancing the migration assessment and the migration tools in SAP Integration Suite.
As outlined in this blog, the tools help you in your transition from SAP Process Integration / SAP Process Orchestration to SAP integration Suite. Whereas the assessment tool allows you to plan and scope the migration complexity and effort, the migration tool guides you through the semi-automatic generation of integration flows based on the integration scenarios in your SAP Process Integration / SAP Process Orchestration system.
So, let’s see what improvements have been made since we shipped the tools at the beginning of this year.
In the assessment tool, new rules have been added to improve the evaluation results such as evaluating the operation mapping parameters, evaluating the JDBC drivers for JDBC receiver channels, evaluating RFC lookups in graphical mappings, etc.
Furthermore, the system settings have been included into the migration assessment tool. So, you do not need to add a destination in the BTP cockpit, instead you can easily add new SAP Process Integration / SAP Process Orchestration systems directly in the user interface of the migration assessment tool.
The following additional adapters are now supported in the migration tooling: XI, JDBC, and RFC.
The migration tool is based on a set of integration flow templates. Here, new templates have been added to support CSV to XML and XML to CSV conversion and Async/sync bridge scenarios. In addition, we have started to improve some of the existing templates for better readability and better supportability. For latter, I will publish soon another blog describing the templates improvements in more detail.
A summary page has been added to the migration tooling. At the end of the migration wizard, a summary page shows what has been migrated and what are the next steps to be done by an integration developer.
In the generated integration flow, all attributes of the migrated adapters are externalized so that you can configure the parameters without having to edit the newly created integration flows.
For more details about the supported components and templates of the migration tool, refer to the Migration Tooling documentation.
We are constantly working on improving the tools to increase the scope of the configuration scenarios supported and the degree of automation. In the make are new templates covering the content-based routing and recipient list patterns, support for older releases 7.31 and 7.4, and others (note, roadmap topics are due to change). So, stay tuned.
