Serena Changeman Dimension 9.1 to GIT Migration

How to migrate the data's from Serena Changeman Dimension 9.1 to GIT.
Parents
  • 1) Identify "What" you want to migrate...
    a) All Versions/Baselines/Types/Comments/History etc etc
    b) All Item-Item relationships?
    c) All Change/Problem/Release/Bugs etc - History/Comments etc etc

    Or possibly "just" Production-ised Item Revisions (Items @ final lifecycle state? or possibly Items contained in Baselines that have been deployed to Production?)

    Once you know exactly what you want to migrate............... then we can set about solving that (rather than the rather open ended query)

    As examples......
    20 years of Development will almost certainly have an awful lot of Item revisions that never made it past (early stage) testing.... Do you really want to keep them?
    Plus (if you are using full Dimensions functionality) records of bug fix cycles/change cycles etc from 20 years ago might not be worth migration.
    Most (if not all) of your technology from 20years ago could well be totally "un-usable" now.....
    Obviously Dimensions 9 (while not 20 years old) isn't really compatible with current Dimensions - Any triggers/interfaces etc set up then probably wouldn't "directly" work now.... So it'd be the same for lots of your other stuff....
    20 years ago it could be coded for Windows 98 (even 95) - not even XP...... and I doubt any of it would even run....

    Obviously the GIT part is irrelevant until you know what is worth migrating....
