Migrate search analytics to another collection

Managed by | Updated .


This article shows how analytics can be moved from one collection to another - by copying across the search and click history and rebuilding the analytics database on the target collection.

This is sometimes necessary if the collection name changes and existing analytics data needs to be imported into the new collection, or if a standalone collection is replaced with a meta collection and analytics history needs to be transferred to the new collection.


  1. Copy or move the query and click log files from $SEARCH_HOME/data/SOURCE_COLLECTION/archive to $SEARCH_HOME/data/DESTINATION_COLLECTION/archive
  2. Log into the administration interface and switch to DESTINATION_COLLECTION
  3. Rebuild the analytics database for DESTINATION_COLLECTION
