Unleash GitHub Enterprise Importer for Smooth, High-Fidelity Migrations & Enhanced Features

The era of digital transformation has made giants out of tech companies like GitHub, known for their cutting-edge success stories on code repository platforms. In recent years, many organizations have migrated their projects to GitHub.com to gain access to its powerful features like GitHub Actions and GitHub Codespaces. Consequently, GitHub has gone the extra mile to make the migration process more efficient by offering existing tools and services tailor-made for migration purposes.

The game-changer in the migration arena is the introduction of GitHub Enterprise Importer (GEI), a self-serve tool that not only simplifies the process but also ensures a smooth and high-fidelity migration to GitHub Enterprise Cloud.

Wonders of the New GitHub Enterprise Importer

GEI is a trailblazer in terms of allowing code migrations to GitHub Enterprise Cloud and GitHub.com in high-fidelity. Additionally, it brings about a palpable shift in import capabilities by meticulously migrating not only the code but also all conversations and collaboration history, including pull requests, reviews, and comments.

The numbers speak for themselves: over 2,000 customers have already used GEI to migrate more than 400,000 repositories to GitHub Enterprise Cloud.

Smooth Migrations with GitHub Enterprise Importer

The great news is that GEI facilitates migrations from several platforms, including GitHub Enterprise Server, Azure DevOps, Bitbucket Data Center, Bitbucket Server, as well as for existing GitHub.com customers who wish to adopt Enterprise Managed Users.

One of the chief attractions of GEI is its simple command line interface (CLI), which allows users to run migrations within an average time of just 70 seconds per repository. The CLI is equipped to handle bulk migrations of large numbers of repositories, providing much-needed feedback on migration status, including warnings, thereby giving users peace of mind.

For users seeking more control and advanced automations, GEI also offers a fully-featured API.

Planning is the Key

The secret to any successful migration lies in its planning and preparation. No matter the scale or complexity of code repositories, it is crucial to plan beforehand to ensure a problem-free migration journey. That’s why GitHub has introduced a new guide on planning migrations, which is applicable to all GitHub users, irrespective of the supported migration path.

For those dealing with larger and more complex migrations, the GitHub Expert Services Team is at your service, providing hands-on guidance throughout the entire process.

In conclusion, migrating to GitHub.com using GitHub Enterprise Importer is a game-changing process that unlocks powerful features and streamlines the migration experience. By deploying GEI, you can secure a smooth, high-fidelity migration that captures the essence of your code, conversations, and collaboration history. Combined with the expert resources and support provided by GitHub, you’ll be well-positioned to tackle even the most challenging migration projects. So, put your planning hat on and get started on the road to a more productive, efficient, and powerful GitHub experience!

Up until working with Casey, we had only had poor to mediocre experiences outsourcing work to agencies. Casey & the team at CJ&CO are the exception to the rule.

Communication was beyond great, his understanding of our vision was phenomenal, and instead of needing babysitting like the other agencies we worked with, he was not only completely dependable but also gave us sound suggestions on how to get better results, at the risk of us not needing him for the initial job we requested (absolute gem).

This has truly been the first time we worked with someone outside of our business that quickly grasped our vision, and that I could completely forget about and would still deliver above expectations.

I honestly can't wait to work in many more projects together!
