Some Facebook support groups asked a common question about how to keep and transfer existing Nightscout data to a new instance.
I have created the data transfer tool to address and resolve this issue. It is freely available for anyone with a Nightscout site hosted with nightscout.pro or any other host.
When using the tool, you must enter your old Nightscout site URL. If your old site had AUTH_DEFAULT_ROLES set to ‘denied’ (meaning you had to enter your API SECRET to view the data), then you’d need to enter your old API SECRET too. Enter your new URL and new API SECRET, and you can quickly transfer profile, entries and treatment data between Nightscout instances.
Can I just ask how long it takes to transfer it over as the wheel has been going around for about 7 minutes do I need to leave it open?
If you’re having trouble with the tool, you can email me at [email protected] with the details of your old Nightscout site, and I can do the transfer for you.
