To replicate data you must provision an instance of Data Replication by using the service catalog. You must configure a project for Data Replication, and create the required connections with the necessary privileges for replication. Then you create replication assets and start them.
1. Create a Data Replication service instance
Before creating and configuring a project for Data Replication assets, you need a Data Replication service. If you do not yet have a Data Replication service instance, see Create a Data Replication service instance.
2. Create and configure a project for Data Replication
You can create a new project and configure it for Data Replication, or you can configure an existing project. If you have not yet done so, see Configuring a project for Data Replication.
Now you are ready to add Data Replication assets.
3. Create a Data Replication asset
You can use Data Replication to move data to achieve various business goals. Select the goal that meets your needs, and follow the steps to achieve this goal.
The replication is now defined and ready to run. The following steps will walk you through starting replication.
4. Start replication
From the project, click the Assets tab.
Click on the Data Replication asset you created. This brings you to the details page.
Click the run icon button. You can hover on the icons to see what action they will take.
The replication status will change to starting and you can see progress in the event log. The status will update to running once the replication has completed initialization and started replicating data.
The replication will continue to run until you stop it. Changes to the selected source schema tables will be replicated in the target database tables.
To confirm that data is replicating, see Monitoring replication.
