I migrated my data, but the customer table was not moved from M1 to M2. I executed these commands:

php bin/magento migrate:settings vendor/magento/data-migration-tool/etc/opensource-to-commerce/

php bin/magento migrate:data -a vendor/magento/data-migration-tool/etc/opensource-to-commerce/

Products were successfully migrated though.


Please make sure that you do not have <ignore> elements inside your / file that possibly ignore these tables.

ALSO NOTE: -a (auto) switch will attempt to skip missing attributes/tables without warning you - for your first migrations, you should rather make sure the information are notified (without -a) switch. For example: 3rd party tables

I have just confirmed with my recent database migration:

The following tables are present in M2 migrated database :

   customer_address_entity_* ie. int, datetime, text

The customer_address_entity_* tables are empty though (not sure what contents are supposed to be there, unable to confirm at the moment).

These tables do have customer data filled after migration:


Additionally - please see the guide Here on how to reset Migration I created (when you need to restart for migrate:data)

  • I did not changed the original map.xml.dist file at all.

    Did you verify the map.xml file and check its contents? I see that customer_entity (and related tables are indeed there as <ignore/> tags. I think the place where it might be imported are here: You may want to investigate data-migration-tool/src/Migration/Step/Customer/Model/AttributesDataToCustomerEntityRecords.php and see how customer tables are impacted.
