I want to move to Magento 2. I use the Magento 2 Data Migration Tool to transfer the data from Magento 1 to Magento 2.

The first thing I migrated is settings:

sudo php bin/magento migrate:settings -r /path_to_magento_installation/vendor/magento/data-migration-tool/etc/ce-to-ce/

(With the path to my Magento installation instead of path_to_magento_installation.)

However, when I go to the Magento 2 backend, I see that my stores and pages (and I think every other setting) is not migrated. It is the same as before using migrate:settings.

What went wrong? / What do I have to do?

I have found the issue to be caused by me NOT including the "Map Step" in the

/var/www/html/vendor/magento/data-migration-tool/etc/opensource-to-opensource/" file

<step title="Map Step">

remember to also remove the tables you want to copy over to the M2 site from the map.xml file. All the basic tables (sales_flat... etc) will be listed in this file in the ignore flag. Remove them for the data to copy over.


Nothing went wrong. Just have to do reindexing and clear cache with executing the below CLI commands.

php bin/magento indexer:reindex
php bin/magento cache:flush

If still not work please delete var/cache and var/page_cache folder.
