One way to export and import the migration project from a source server to a target server is using a zip file. The high level steps involved in this process are:

Create a Migration Project via (Business Process Automation > Migration Project Management > Migration Projects).
Run Migration Project Export Process to create a Migration Project package zip file via (Business Process Automation > Process Management > Migration Project Export).
Receive the Migration Project Export Package via email or FTP or file system.
Import the Migration Project package zip file.

Running the Export process (Business Process Automation > Process Management > Migration Project Export) extracts the content for all (valid) project objects and packages it along with a Project Control File (project.xml) into a Migration Project Package zip file.

The package file name (i.e. preceding the default file extension of “.zip”) will default to the Migration Project XID but can be overridden by using the Migration Project Package field.

Note: The physical location on the server where the package file is stored is controlled by the glog.migrationProject.dir property and defaults to <OTM_HOME>/glog/integration/projects. To protect hosted systems, this reserved property cannot be changed in the cloud with a service request.

You can configure Oracle Transportation Management to receive a migration project export package via email and FTP.

The option also exists to receive the exported package file by email (by subscribing to MIGRATION PROJECT – EXPORT SEND PACKAGE FILE event. See below) or to transport the package via FTP (where notify type is specified during the Export Process scheduling).
