All forms gone?

I logged in today to get a briefcase code because I needed to migrate
data that was in accessible from a 0.9.8 server to a 1.0 server. The
transfer failed and when I logged back in ALL THE FORMS ARE GONE. I
checked this with 2 browsers and with 2 computers. What happened and
how to I make it right again??

Frustrated,

Alex

Not sure what you were doing...

  1. upgrade 0.9.x to the latest Aggregate -- 0.9.8.1. This fixes an issue
    with migration of dates and times.

  2. Download the latest briefcase -- 1.0 Beta.

  3. run Briefcase to download all the data to your local server.

  4. create a new appspot application id for 1.0. We strongly recommend that
    you do not overwrite/reuse the 0.9.x application id.

  5. deploy 1.0 to this new application id.

  6. verify that your 0.9.x form is well-formed w.r.t. the stricter
    requirements in 1.0 by uploading each form definition manually to Aggregate
    1.0 and fixing any of the flaws in those form definitions (by manually
    editing the forms). The forms are in the briefcase data directory under
    the form name. Edit the form definitions until you have fixed the issues
    that need fixing.

  7. run briefcase to upload data to the 1.0 instance.

Check your quotas on the appengine console, and the logs. You might be
over-quota.

I just discovered the pain of their moving out of beta -- it appears they
set the datastore layer to fail until you accept the new licensing terms,
but the read request count isn't suspended during that time. I've exceeded
my daily free quota of read requests for an instance that was set to
publish a bunch of tables to spreadsheets because it kept retrying after
those failures.

Thanks for the reply, Mitch.

It ends up that is just came back a few hours ago.
However, now the Agg 1.0 is giving me an Error: Server Error when I
try to log in to that application.

This is not something that I am doing accidentally, as I have been
collecting data for 5 global projects for months. I can only assume
that this has something to do with the App Engine coming out of beta.
It is scary though.

Thanks, Mitch!

I suspected it might be related to the new terms but I wasn't
certain.
Thank you for the prompt follow-up as always!

Best wishes,
Alex
