Migrate - broker to UM

Is it possible to migrate webMethods Broker 8.2.3 to webMethods Universal Messaging 9.8? Any one has done this.

Is there any concerns?

Thanks for your support.


Any idea on this.

Are you using native pub-sub or JMS currently with Broker?
For JMS, you can use the Broker-to-UM JMS migration utilities that you will find in the /UniversalMessaging/tools/migrate directory of your UM installation. While these have been officially tested and certified with Broker 9.6, I expect they will work just fine with Broker 8.2.3.
For native pub-sub, just transfer the IS packages from your old IS to the new one as you would do normally during an upgrade and then point your wM Messaging alias to your new UM installation.
For more details, check out the webinar on migrating from Broker to UM: http://techcommunity.softwareag.com/pwiki/-/wiki/Main/Migrating+from+Broker+to+Universal+Messaging
And you can find documentation on the migration from Broker to UM here: http://techcommunity.softwareag.com/ecosystem/documentation/webmethods/wmsuites/Migrating_from_Broker_to_Universal_Messaging.pdf

Hi Krishna,

When migrating native pub-sub from broker to UM below WmPublic util service may come more handy.


It migrates the messaging provider for one or more publishable document types and webMethods messaging trigger from Broker to Universal Messaging

Thanks Jonathan, Let me go-though the video and will let you know in case of any concerns.

Thanks Prasad.

Hi Jonnathan,

I have installed the 9.8 version along with UM, not installed broker.

I have used the below migration scripts and completed the migration


But while i am bringing up the server first time am getting the lot of error like below…

2016-05-10 03:55:31 EDT [ISS.0098.0055E] Exception during attempt to register Trigger: com.wm.app.b2b.server.dispatcher.exceptions.InvalidDocumentException: [ISS.0098.9006] No matching Document Type exists for YaraSapPro.Adapter:notifyDELVRY03PublishDocument

Also one more question, whether i need to install broker as well in new environment before migrating to UM.

Thanks for your support.

Issue has been resolved by syncing all docs.

Is there any documentation on how to use the migrateDocTypesTriggersToUM service or any information relative to it?

Hi Jhon,

Please find attached the doc for your reference.

Also you can refer the following guide for more information on migration.
