Migrate Orchestrator Workflows from 3.2 to 4.1

Hello guys,

As mentionned in the thread title, I would lile to migrate my old VMO 3.2 infra to the latest version (4.1).

I maybe missed some information, but I'm unable to find any documentation about this kind of migration. And the vCO 4.1 seems to not have the precious refactor workflows.

It would be nice if I could do this without going through a vCO 4.0 (that I need to build just for that, with refactor workflows) or manually adapting my scripts.

Thank in advance for any kind of help! Smiley Happy

I think the 2 important questions are:

How many workflows do you have to refactor ?

How many of these use vim35 objects ? (If they do not use vim35 objects then they do not need to be refactored).

I have personally chosen to refactor the workflow I needed on a need basis. I took the opportunity to clean them up / rename them in a more consistent way / do them better with looking at the new VC4 API.

If you have tons of workflows then you may consider install a separate vCO 4.0 server, follow the refactoring doc, test the workflows and then export them in a new package.
