Content Migration from MongoDb to Crownpeak

Our current CMS is Apostrophe and we have been exploring means to perform content migration from our current to Crownpeak. At the core of this exercise, our patterns of widgets, templates and themes have been redesigned and already integrated into Crownpeak.

For now we are exploring two options:

1. Perform matchmaking of old vs new components and accordingly extract data in json and port it to Crownpeak

2. Move all the pages from our current CMS as static templates into Crownpeak

Can anyone point me in the right direction to execute this migration exercise successfully?

Hi @Stanley 

Great question.

I've reached out to our internal experts and we should have a response for you by the end of the day tomorrow. I appreciate your patience.

Re: Content Migration from MongoDb to Crownpeak

The approach to take depends on the requirements for each specific implementation. In a typical implementation, we develop scripts that would deploy content to the components based on a mapping of the old to the new (option #1 of those you have mentioned). This provides content authors the ability to use the content input interface in DXM

Re: Content Migration from MongoDb to Crownpeak

Is there a possibility to move the entire content as individual static assets (allowing to edit content but no layout changes) into Crownpeak?

Re: Content Migration from MongoDb to Crownpeak

In order to limit changes to only content, we recommend creating purpose built templates for the different content types. You can find more information about the DXM implementation process here https://community.crownpeak.com/t5/Developing-in-the-CMS/DXM-Implementation-Process/ta-p/1403
