Migrating from Kong Gateway (OSS) to Kong Gateway
As of Kong Enterprise version 2.1.x and later, it is no longer necessary to explicitly
migrate-community-to-enterprise command parameter to to migrate all
Kong Gateway (OSS) entities to Kong Enterprise. Running the
kong migrations commands
performs that migration command on your behalf.
Important: You can only migrate to a Kong Enterprise version that supports the same Kong Gateway (OSS) version.
Warning: This action is irreversible, therefore it is strongly recommended to back up your production data before migrating from Kong Gateway (OSS) to Kong Enterprise.
- If running a version of Kong Gateway (OSS) earlier than 2.8.x, upgrade to Kong 2.8.x before migrating Kong Gateway (OSS) to Kong Enterprise 2.8.x.
The following steps guide you through the migration process.
Download Kong Enterprise 2.8.x and configure it to point to the same datastore as your Kong Gateway (OSS) 2.8.x node. The migration command expects the datastore to be up-to-date on any pending migration:
kong migrations up [-c configuration_file] kong migrations finish [-c configuration_file]
Confirm that all of the entities are now available on your Kong Enterprise node.
