I am starting a migration project. How do I start planning? What questions should I ask?
The most important part of any migration project is understanding the source.
Planning ahead will help you
What is the vocabulary of your site?
All the stuff your shiny, new site does not have:
If only there were one word …
Do we preserve entity IDs or do we create new ones?
How many items do we have?
Is the site multilingual?
Do we care about preserving revision history?
Those who forget history …
What is the content structure?
What is in your text fields?
Some of the ideas in this document come from a discussion in the
#migration channel on Drupal Slack, started 2023-02-03.
