Below given are the stages it goes through before actually migrating the data:
Integrity Check: This check is to verify whether the structure of the data from the source and destination are compatible or not. An error occurs in case the entities are not compatible and a warning message is displayed if the fields have different datatype.
Data Transfer: After passing the integrity check, transferring of data takes place in which bulk data is transferred in the database.
Volume Check: Following the successful completion of data transfer, a volume check is executed that offers an additional check of data transferred correctly.
Delta Delivery: It is responsible for delivering rest of the data that includes incremental data updates which are added to Magento 1 storefront and admin panel while running previous migration stages. After the execution of these stages the tool is then needed to run in the following three migration modes in particular order for the migration process.
Settings Migration Mode: This mode of the data migration tool is used to transfer various entities like website, stores, store views and store configuration. It contains a file named settings.xml that describes the setting which are to migrated, ignored or renamed.
Data Migration Mode: This mode migrates most of the data after the execution of integrity check. The tool installs deltalog tables to Magneto 1 database and runs the data migration step. After the successful completion of data migration volume check verifies the migration.
Delta Migration Mode: To track the additional data from being migrated to Magento 2 database in the previous data migration mode, delta migration mode is executed. After this whole process of data migration, a testing of Magento 2 is done to check its working and is made live if the testing goes successful without any error.
