Indicates the selected project's status in Site Administration. For example, Active or Deactivated.

Migration Status

The migration status of a project can be one of the following:

  • None. Project is not upgraded to ALM 16.00, and will not be migrated.

  • Pending. File migration is pending.

  • Migrating. File migration is in progress.

  • Done. File migration is complete.

  • Error. An error occurred during file migration, and migration could not be completed. See the cause of the error in the Additional Information panel. Fix the error, and click Resume.

  • Warning. A warning occurred during file migration.

    For details of the warning, and the actions you must take to resolve the problem, download the log files listed in the Additional Information panel. Resolve the problems as necessary, and click Resume to complete the migration.

There are several possible causes for warnings:

  • One or more project files were not found in the project repository. This can result from missing or renamed files.

  • Redundant files are found in the repository. The migration cannot complete until the legacy repository is empty of files. Redundant files can be one of the following:

    • Duplicate project files that could not be deleted. This can result from insufficient permissions.

    • Files unrelated to ALM that were manually saved in the project repository.

    • Unidentified project files.

Migration Progress

The number of project files migrated to the new repository, as a percentage of the total number of project files.

Additional Information

If a problem was detected, displays the cause of the problem, and links to log files. The log files describe the actions you must take to resolve the problem.
