Migration log

Each migration will be logged here, whether successful or not. The information captured is somewhat self-explanatory, but let's review:

  • Migration Id - the unique Id created for each migration. Clicking this Id will take you to more details as described here.
  • Files - the number of files involved in the migration.
  • Started - the migration starting timestamp as captured from the server on which Otto is installed.
  • Status
    • Done - successful migration
    • Done with Warning - completed with errors
    • Info - migration is in progress
    • Failed - migration did not complete
  • Actions - three actions are available as described here.
