What is the Delivery Folder Migration Tool?
The Delivery Folder Migration Tool is a tool that is required during the process of importing applications into AIP Console from CAST Management Studio.
CAST AIP Console uses a different format of Delivery folder (since version 1.13) than the format that is used in legacy deployments of CAST AIP using CAST Management Studio. Therefore, before an application can be imported into AIP Console, the files stored in the existing Delivery folder relative to the Applications to be imported, must be transformed into the format that the AIP Console can understand.
Therefore, this tool serves two purposes:
- it will first copy the files for the selected Applications stored in the existing Delivery folder configured in CAST Management Studio into the Delivery folder configured for the target AIP Node where the application will be managed.
- it will then transform these files into a structure that AIP Console can understand
- the existing Delivery folder remains unchanged
