Migrate Activity Types with X-Org


X-Org is Gainsight's migration tool which can be used to migrate data from a source object to a target object. (Source object can be a sandbox org and target object can be a production org). To learn more about cross-org migration, refer to Cross-Org Migration Overview.

Migrate Activity Types

You can use the X-org tool to migrate Activity Types in Timeline. When you migrate an activity type, the associated layout is also migrated. If you modify the Activity type after migration, only the Activity Type’s updated layout configuration is migrated during subsequent migrations. The Activity Type is present on the Configurations page of the Migration. You cannot Migrate rules which have a “Load to Activity” Action type.

Gainsight NXT customers logging in through the Salesforce CRM can also use the X-org tool to migrate Activity Sync configurations in Timeline, as well as Activity Types. When you migrate Activity Sync configuration, the Salesforce Status and Salesforce Priority fields, along with the field mappings, are migrated. Activity Sync configurations are present on the Configuration page of the X-org tool. To migrate these configurations, follow the same steps to migrate Activity Types listed below, but on step 12 check the box for Activity Sync Config instead of, or in addition to, the Activity Types checkbox.

To migrate Activity Types:

  1. Navigate to Administration > X-Org Migration
  3. Enter the Tenant Id of the target org.
  5. Click the copy icon to copy the token and click CLOSE.

Note: If you have already generated the token for target org, you can use the existing token.
