For anyone familiar with Magento 1, it’s quite common that a configurable product is one of the most popular product types and powerful when you sell complex products with multiple attributes.
However, it can be quite daunting migrating configurable products from Magento 1 to Magento 2 since Magento 1 provides fairly extensive pricing options, such as Special Price, Tier Price, and Cost. That’s why we received many questions like “does the migration tool migrate configurable products attached to the correct simple products and attribute sets?”.
In this article, we will try to cover the main differences of Configurable Products in Magento 1 versus Magento 2 and how our UB Data Migration Pro module helps to migrate all Configurable Products from Magento 1 to Magento 2 automatically. Before we dig deeper, let’s talk briefly about what simple products versus configurable products are. Continue reading

Ability to migrate CMS content to Magento 2

We have just released a maintenance release for UB Data Migration Pro which focused on further improving the delta migration performance. The goal is automatically finding any data changes that occur on your current production instance between the last migration and the delta migration, and migrate only the differences. In most cases, the new delta migration from version 3.2.0 will complete much faster than the prior versions.
Apart from that, several incremental enhancements are also included in this release. Read on to learn more about the update. Continue reading

In 2018, there has been an increase in the number of e-commerce stores that carry out Magento migration. We believe this number would continue to rise in 2019 due to upcoming Magento 1’s end of support. It’s no longer the question of ‘Should you migrate your Magento 1.x to Magento?’. It’s more about how you should do it and which migration tool you should use.
This Magento data migration FAQs Part III takes you through the frequently asked questions specific to our UB Data Migration Pro extension which were not covered in our Magento data migration FAQ Part 1 and Part 2.
This FAQs is aimed at helping you identify which is causing the errors that you might see at some point and the appropriate resolution.
|Q1. Today we are taking a look on rules migration, we cannot edit any migrated rule. It shows this error: Unable to unserialize value. It works properly with new rules, not the migrated one.
|This circumstance occurred with a user who attempted to use our old UB Data Migration Pro v3.1.4 with the latest Magento 2.3.0 (Disclaimer: Upgrading to UB Data Migration Pro v3.1.7 is needed for compatibility with Magento 2.3.0).
After completing the first migration, the migrated sales rules were stored in serialized strings in accordance with Magento 2.2.x. Then the user upgraded his migrated instance to the latest Magento 2.3.0. However, due to the incomplete upgrade, those migrated sales rules were not converted to the new JSON format required by Magento 2.3.0. This was the reason of getting the error message above ‘Unable to unseriazlie value’.
Resolving the problem:
Upgrade to the latest UB Data Migration Pro v3.1.7 for compatibility with Magento 2.3.0, then run the delta migration with the CLI mode —update in Step 8 -- Migration Settings > Others.
Data migration is a critical element when Magento 2 is adopted and the risk involved is high. However, choosing the right data migration tool will increase the likelihood of achieving a smooth transition of data to Magento 2.
We have conducted an interactive interview session with Fayyaz Khattak, Magento Community Manager at Cloudways, to know his recipe for a successful Magento 2 data migration project. We explored the common hurdles that could potentially derail a data migration project and how UB Data Migration Pro helped him ease up the migration process.
Fayyaz, thanks for taking out some time for this interview and sharing your insights and what you’ve learned along the way. Continue reading
