What do I loose?

I am upgrading my database from the distribution to MySql. Till now all of what I have done has been experimental, but I want to preserve the configurations I have created.

If I do the upgrade and decide not to migrate the old data, exactly what am I loosing and what are the consequences? If it is only artifacts I can deal.

Any heads up, warnings, suggestions, or other issues I should be aware of before doing this? Got to admit I am nervous about this.

TIA for you time.

Hi Len,

I recently did the same. You don't lose the configuration setup, but you do lose all history, so build logs, artifacts etc.. You also lose user/group information.

You should also delete the artifacts, messages and pluginData/customDataStorage directories before you start against the new database, as the old information will conflict.

Hope that helps!

Thank you for the reply!

We tried to describe the database dropping approach in the doc.
