Migration Portfolio Assessment (MPA) Export
Detailed portfolio assessment and migration planning can be accomplished online with the AWS Migration Portfolio Assessment (MPA). The data from this Cloudamize export can be imported into MPA with a web-based data ingestion process. MPA offers extensive configuration and enables experienced consultants to model scenarios and generate data for business case analysis and migration planning.
The use case of this feature is to export infrastructure assets and dependency details in Excel sheets which have all the columns the AWS MPA tool is looking for and can be ingested into its system. The file contains all the data required to import and map to the respective columns.
Customers can export the MPA report by following these steps:
Access your Cloudamize console (https://console.cloudamize.com) and install Cloudamize agents or agentless data collector(s).
Start the assessment (learn more here) and allows the assessment to run to completion.
After the final results are available, log into the Cloudamize console.
Click “View Details” next to AWS results, navigate to the “Reports” tab, and click “Download Report” next to “Migration Portfolio Assessment (MPA) Export”.
The MPA report will be downloaded using the selected plan from the left-hand panel (the default plan is “OLA 2 - Workload, On-Demand”)
As Migration Portfolio Assessment (MPA) Export is an AWS-specific feature the MPA export is only available for AWS assessments.
The MPA export is design-dependent and selecting a different design will change the exported report data. You can select a new design from the menu on the left-hand side.
In database details sheets, recommended target RDS offering ‘target instance’ and ‘deployment engine’ are specific to the RDS design. Hence to get those details, you must select a design with the RDS recommendation option enabled.
Details like Business Unit, Business Owner, Business Owner Email, Business Owner Phone, etc. which Cloudamize agents either do not collect or NA for data collection will not be exported and complete column in excel will be exported as blank.
As Cloudamize does not maintain the installed database to its running application mapping hence database to application sheet does not contain any data and ''No data to show.” message will be shown.
Customer should not manipulate the Server Id, Application Id, and Database Id values in any of the Excel sheets. Doing this will corrupt the data and MPA will not be able to identify the correct dependencies
