Data Discovery Utility
OpsHub’s Data Discovery Utility tool helps the user to get the detailed sizing information from TFS or Azure DevOps (Server or Services) required to assess the migration scope. The Data Discovery Utility tool is a UI-based Windows tool.
The Data Discovery Utility will create an encrypted .zip file containing detailed sizing information for each project. These files can be viewed by using the decrypt function within the utility on the .zip file. The information collected by the Data Discovery Utility and the database size of any TFVC repo is instrumental for OpsHub to be able to provide an accurate quote for both price and migration timeline.
Follow the steps below to start assessing your instance of TFS or Azure DevOps Server or Services.
For work items, the tool captures details including work item count, total revision count, total test assets (Test Suite, Test Run, Test Plan, Test Result), number of attachments, number of links, number of work items in different states (Active, resolved, closed, etc). The utility also collects the details related to the total number of users in each project, configured fields, and project templates. For Version Control, the utility captures the total number of Change sets and labels. The information captured here is crucial as it allows OpsHub to assess the migration cost and timeline.
Step – 7: Applicable only for TFVC repository.
To get the DB sizing for source control data, please follow through the steps below:
- Open Azure DevOps Server/Azure DevOps Services in Visual Studio.
- Use Team Explorer to connect to the source project/collection system.
- In ‘Source Control Explorer’, right-click the project and select ‘Get Latest Version’.
- Let the project content download, now browse to that folder location, and view its properties.
- Take a screenshot of the size (on disk) as shown in the properties.
Note: Please share the (1) utility zip file and and (2) the Database sizing screenshot with us at firstname.lastname@example.org or directly with your account executive.
