External storage — Ensuring data migration is successful

Once you have migrated your state data to an external store, what do you do next? You compare results! You know, just to be absolutely positively certain the migration has worked.. beyond a shadow of doubt.

To be absolutely positively certain the migration has worked, you will do a GET request on api/admin/1/states endpoints and compare the results with what you have in the external store. Specifically:

  1. Click API.

    This opens the in-built Flow API editor.
  2. Copy-paste the endpoint api/admin/1/states in the address bar.
  3. Click GET.

    This fetches the state data for the tenant in the Response profile, thusly:
  4. Compare this data to what you have in the external store. The data should match.
