Data migration from old database to new the ocPortal database

To All, can someone please explain to me the database structure of the catalogue? As you see, i created a catalogue with entries similar to my old database for the users to input their data, so now i have to migrate these data from the old database to the catalogue database and i dont quite understand the data structure of the catalogue so can anyone explain to me? Thanks in advance.

A catalogue's field contents is defined by all the 'catalogue_fields' table rows that are in that catalogue. Categories are straight-forward. Entries in the catalogue are defined by the 'catalogue_entries' rows in the catalogue; but the actual individual field values for any entry are defined by the various value tables (the actual table depends on the type of data the field stores). In all of ocPortal, and human-readable text is stored as a number which is the ID number of a row in the 'translate' table.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about ocPortal whenever you see the opportunity.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying ocPortal on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.
