Setting Up Distribution Instances
If you had a single Distribution instance connected to more than one Source Artifactory instance in Distribution 1.x, you need to set up a Distribution instance for each of your Artifactory instances when upgrading to Distribution 2.x in the JFrog Platform.

Migrating Release Bundle Metadata
Make sure that the new Distribution instances do not contain Release Bundles with the same name and version as the one you are exporting/importing. This will fail the import.
Perform the following migration steps:
- Run the Get Source Artifactory_IDs REST API to generate a list of Artifactory Instances.
- Run the Export Distribution Release Bundle Metadata REST API to export the Release Bundle metadata according to the Artifactory_ID to a zip file.
- Run the Import Distribution Release Bundle Metadata REST API to import the Release Bundle metadata on the Distribution instance.
