We are facing a very high memory consumption while migrating a Project from a template due to high number of Information Messages that are raised.


To avoid the error, change the following in the given Project data, so that the migration can work even for a big Project.

1) Change the Project Task descriptions to text with a maximum length of 40 characters. This will avoid the Information Message which informs about the truncation of the text.

2) Please check the Duration given in the Task details. It does not match with the given date so that the Duration will be adopted during migration. This causes also, always an Information Message as the Duration will be adopted according to the given dates. Leave the Duration empty for each Project Task and let the system calculate it automatically.

We are working on improvements to avoid this high memory consumption during Migration.
