Converting from V1 to V2: Collections

Hello everyone,

I am a new team at a company that uses Cockpit CMS (V1) for our local/internal business application. My long-term project is to upgrade our current Cockpit version (and our custom add-on) to the latest version. I am breaking this project down into two main parts:

  1. Migrating our existing collections to ensure that there is no data loss.
  2. Rebuilding/tweaking our add-on to work with the new interface.
  • Our add-on consists of 10 custom pages that are navigable from the menu bar.

Currently, I am seeking guidance on the first step of migrating our collections. I have attempted to copy all of the collections from the /storage/collections directory to the new V2 installation, but the collections are not appearing. Any advice or guidance would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Note: If you have any suggestions/thoughts on how to best migrate an add-on/how to rebuild the custom pages, it I’m all ears!
