After you complete your review of the migration data, you can permanently apply the changes to your target instance.

  1. As a site admin, SSH into your target GitHub Enterprise instance:

    ssh -p 122 admin@hostname
  2. Using the ghe-migrator import command, start the import process. You'll need:

    • Your Migration GUID
    • Your access token for authentication

      ghe-migrator import /home/admin/MIGRATION_GUID.tar.gz -g MIGRATION_GUID -u username -p TOKEN
      Starting GitHub::Migrator
      Import 100% complete /
    • To specify where migration files should be staged append the command with --staging-path=/full/staging/path. Defaults to /data/user/tmp.
