System Center Orchestrator Migration Toolkit- Details

Integration Pack Converter

The Integration Pack Converter converts integration packs that were created using the Orchestrator Integration Toolkit (OIT) to integration modules based on Windows PowerShell that can be imported into Azure Automation or Service Management Automation.

When you run the Integration Pack Converter, you are presented with a wizard that will allow you to select an integration pack (.oip) file. The wizard then lists the activities included in that integration pack and allows you to select which will be migrated and allows for all activity modifications/validations. When you complete the wizard, it creates a module that includes a corresponding cmdlet for each of the activities in the original integration pack.

Standard Activities Module

Orchestrator includes a set of out-of-box standard activities that are not included in an integration pack but are used by many runbooks. The Standard Activities module is a integration module that includes a cmdlet equivalent for each of these activities. In addition to supporting converted runbooks, the cmdlets in the standard activities module can be used by someone familiar with Orchestrator to build new runbooks in SMA/Azure Automation.
