Data Migration

The ATL_Manager will be in charge for moving the data from the Import database to the target study database, in the example below Study2. This task can be done in two ways. Note that all of these actions will be documented in the Audit log.

Moving Data in the Config Window (requires Administrator Password)

Start the Config utility and select the DATABASE  tab. Make sure that the correct user ATL_Manager is selected, and activate the Database Administration button.


In the appearing Database Administration make sure that the Import database is selected. If it is not selected, activate the Components Administration tab, switch the database to Import, and the select the Selected for:/replication/ .. tab.

Then select the subjects to move to the Study2 database, and activate Set as "Selected for Loading". This brings all related images to the Selected for:/replication/  .. tab.


In order to remove the data after being copied switch Replicate to to Move to.


A dialog window appears for the specification of the target database. Make sure that the right Move to database is selected, and then migrate the data with the Move data button.
