just wanted to let you know that I'm currently working on an extension to 7.5s migration mechanism.
What Camunda provided with 7.5 release is a very good idea! Instead of having to reinvent the wheel over and over again... ah, well, I guess you get the point
So, why an extension then? you might ask.The answer is simple:
- The migration plans you can create are deployment-specific. It's not out-of-the-box possible to create a migration plan on a dev machine, test it in a QA environment and then run it on production.
- Sometimes its just not enough to simply migrate a variable along. You have to rename it, change its value, its type or delete/create it. Just think of some composite key stored in one variable that has to be split up into two.
And that's exactly what the extension addresses.
I'd be glad if I could get some feedback from you
Especially if you plan to do some migrations in the near future and are looking for a way to do that, then please have a look at it.
If you are interested in using the extension, then I'm interested in supporting you and speed up the extension's development.
