Any of you have had a migration of instance and if so, how do you dealt with the "moving" of the Design Studio assets please?
Solved! Go to Solution.
Do I have to move them back to Design Studio after I import the program with the assets in the new instance?
I wanted to compare the 2 instances to see what are the differences between assets (due I don't know which ones are missing in the new one). I have 500+ emails and 900+ images/files. Do you know a way to get that easily? Only Landing Pages are "exportable" to excel...
Yes, you probably will want to move them where they were located originally.
We always recommend the following practices to our customers:
Excepted with some API dev to get a complete listing of all the assets, there is not simple way to compare the assets in 2 instances.
Thanks for your reply. So even if I don't move them back to their "original" location, will the links work? Like Landing Pages or Emails referencing images?
Yes, all the more so as Images are referenced by their URL.
BUT, 2 issues may arise :
I just checked and mi new instance (migrated by old one) does reference the old instance images, so when Marketo removes the old instance, all my 500+ programs will be useless?
Yes, I am afraid. there is no easy way out of this, excepted with the Assets REST API or may Marketo PS.
I have imported a program from our old instance to our new one. It created a duplicate of the templates that it uses (a shame but have to live with it for now). It didn't bring the images that the emails and landings use.
I am so afraid that when we update the CNAMEs, all the sent emails will be linked to the new instance and they wont find the images and we will have nothing but a lame email with error messages saying that the image was not found. Do you know if this will happen or what can I do to avoid this?
Raul - we've had similar experiences when using the "import program" functionality. Lots of duplicates; and assets/images missing. We therefore don't use this capability.
