3.     One-time Conversion


Converting applications and data sources is covered in the next section.


On the old server, parameters were stored in <old_appdata>/DefaultParameters.xml. They were global and applied to all content (applications and data sources). In 2020.2 you can now organize content in folders, and you can also define parameters that only apply to content in a particular folder. The new server stores them all in <new_appdata>/Parameters.json.

If <appdata>/Parameters.json doesn't exist when the new server starts, it will create it, and if it finds <appdata>/DefaultParameters.xml it will import these into the new file. To repeat the conversion, e.g., if you want to re-import changed parameters from the old server, delete Parameters.json and restart the server.
