Quick Start Guide
To set up the conversion/ sync follow the steps described below.
1. Add Connections
Firstly, let’s add Database Connections and configure them.
To add a new connection click on the Connections ->Add connection, or click on
the Connection button on the top right corner of the Connections window.
In the 'New Connection' window select the required
type from the list of
supported dbs. IP address, Port, User Name and Password id usually required as obligatory
information to set up database connection. Pictures below show MySQL as a Source node and MS SQL
a Destination for our tutorial.
Click ‘Test connection’ button. The application tries to
connect to your Server with
specified parameters. A confirmation message appears in case connection is established
Click ‘Save’ button to make the connection available to be set up as source or
destination node. In the main window you can add as many connections as you wish. All of
them remain in this list even
after closing the program.

When migration is finished you can see the operation log details and
possibly happened errors.
NOTE: When you press 'Commit' button, a Job of the
current process automatically
creates and all the settings are saved there automatically. Then, the conversion process can be
arranged as a scheduled task and can be run at any time you need.
