Migrating tools from CollabNet Enterprise Edition to CollabNet TeamForge 17.4

As you move onto CTF 17.4, you may want to know how the CollabNet Enterprise Edition (CEE) project information is brought over to CollabNet TeamForge 17.4 (CTF 17.4).

CEE and CTF 17.4 Tool Mapping Details

Most of the tools and their functionality are similar between CEE and CTF 17.4. However, within each tool, some work-arounds might have been done to bring over the CEE project information and resources.

This table shows how tools in CEE map to CTF 17.4 tools:

How to find what you are looking for?

There are several tools that are migrated from CollabNet Enterprise Edition to CollabNet TeamForge 17.4.

You can look through the list for the required tool details. Within each tool, the information is divided into two sections - Migration Overview and Notes. Migration Overview section provides the mapping information whereas the Notes section lists the work-arounds or dissimilarities, if any.


  • Post migration, CEE's audit log entry table is available in CTF 17.4's data folder as "cee_backedup_audit_log" table.
  • Post migration, project tracker permissions are not migrated to CTF 17.4's tracker and vice versa. Project Tracker permissions are transferred to Project Tracker which is brought in to CTF 17.4 as an integrated application.
    Note: Project hierarchy and flow of permissions to child projects is a known issue as of now. Suppose before migration, the parent project is Issue Tracker (CEE) based, child project is Project Tracker (PT) based and some roles from the parent projects are in use in the child project. In all probability, the role inheritance will not be migrated.
  • The look project contains a single consolidated exception report - Documents>Root Folder>cee_migration_exception_report> GLOBAL-REPORT-CONSOLIDATED.txt.
  • The Documents>Root Folder>cee_migration_exception_report><project name>REPORT.txt folder holds all per project exception reports.
  • The CEE files that were committed in a CVS repository, display junk characters when directly viewed in CTF 17.4. It is recommended to download the file and view it.
  • The "www" content from CEE's www project is moved to the "html" directory in the branding repository of "look" project in CTF 17.4.
