What does this MR do?
This MR adds empty project migration to GitLab Group Migration tool that https://docs.gitlab.com/ee/user/group/import/ The idea is to be able to click 1 button to migration any group (with all of it's subgroups and projects) from one GitLab instance to another.is working on
The scope of this MR is to add empty projects, without even a repository, as the plan is to start filling the project up gradually (repo first, then metadata like issues, mrs, updaload, lfs, etc) in future MRs.
Project information is pulled using GraphQL and migrated using Bulk Import's ETL pipeline https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab/blob/master/doc/development/bulk_import.md in 3 separate steps:
- Extract project information from GraphQL
- Transform / sanitize data in a transformer
- Load (create the group using
This MR is very similar to what has been done for Group migration https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab/blob/f2e1fdbd6ef5e797e96d91f3694a37d34428885e/lib/bulk_imports/groups/pipelines/group_pipeline.rb#L1-L1
Documentation will be updated once feature flag is ready to be turned on.
Screenshots or Screencasts (strongly suggested)
How to setup and validate locally (strongly suggested)
bulk_importfeature flag (should be enabled by default)
- Create a group that has subgroups and projects in it. Can be done with a rate task on gdk
bundle exec rake "gitlab:seed:group_seed[2,root]"
/groups/new#import-group-panepage and enter your gitlab credentials (url & api scoped token). You do not need 2 gitlab instances to perform this test
- Select the group you want to import, give it a new name and destination and click Import
- Wait for it to finish and verify imported result
- Imported group should have all of the projects present, even if they are empty.
