Error during process migration to 6.4.2 from 7.8.4


I'm migrating from 6.4.2 to 7.8.4.
The migration from 6.4.2 to 7.0.0 worked fine and the migration from 7.0.0 to 7.3.3 also worked fine.
The problem bellow has occured in the migration from 7.3.3 to 7.4.0.

[INFO] Execute migration to version 7.4.0
[INFO] ---------------
[INFO] | Execute migration step: Update process definition xml to the new 7.4 format
failed to migrate process definition due to cvc-complex-type.2.4.a: Foi detectado um conteúdo inválido começando com o elemento 'displayDescription'. Era esperado um dos '{displayDescriptionAfterCompletion, defaultTransition}'.

I tried to import my .bos (6.4.2), using the Studio 7.3.0 but it didn't work. I tried doing this in other versions as welll, but it only worked in Studio 7.8

It seems to be an issue in migration tool 2.40.0 that check a prerequisites for migration to 7.8.0 that is only valid when already migrated to 7.1.0.

So I tried to migrate to 7.7.5 and I'm able to reproduce your issue.

Now I'm actually investigating your issue.

I see that we have some changes in the process definition XML file schema from version 7.3.3 to 7.4.0:

Exactly the stage at which your migration failed.

I think this issue is related to the following migration tool code:



But I cannot exactly pin point the issue so I opened an issue in our internal tracker and asked R&D to investigate it.

Thanks a lot for reporting this issue.
