Generating StarfishETL Cross-Reference Files from MSCRM Picklists

When using Starfish to migrate from Microsoft Dynamics CRM to a different CRM system, you may need to create cross reference files that translate picklist codes to actual text values. This is particularly true if you don’t have a full Dynamics CRM instance setup for the database you are migrating from. In such as situation, the database returns numeric codes for picklist values instead of their actual text.

Easier connection setup, bpm'online connector & more

We're extremely proud today to be announcing the release of Starfish ETL 4.0. In recent versions, a number of connectors have been redeveloped from the ground up including Salesforce, SData, Email, and Sage CRM. In this release, we've taken this opportunity to remove the old/deprecated versions of these connectors. We've also cleaned up our codebase by eliminating unnecessary dependencies which should result in faster software loading times.
