    We have openIDM based system running in an older version(OpenIDM 4).
    We are going to set up a parallel environment with ForgeRock 5.5

    So these two systems will run in parallel; one fresh(5.5) and one existing(4)
    What is the recommended/best way to sync identities from existing to new environment ?

    Is there a way through which we can automatically copy/sync(like a connector) all identities to new environment and then run parallel for a while and then take old servers off the load balancer ?

    Is back-end data migration (Database) an option ?

    Hi,

    you are supposed to perform an in-place-upgrade. I have to admit that I would feel more comfortable if I had an opportunity to run old and new side-by-side, but that’s the way it is.

    For upgrade from 3.1 to 4.0 there was a scripted-connector enabling you to run 3.1 and 4.0 and migrating managed/user, but you had to create your own scripts to move and adapt your configurations. That scripted connector won’t work with more recent versions, but might be a good start if you really want to go that way.
