Re: ClearSCADA 2013

Mimics won't really be a problem.  If you've used the Pie Chart object, you may need to reconfigure a couple of animations depending on how you have used it.

 

The SCADAPack E-Series items I'd be a little more apprehensive about.

They will import in, but you may end up with Configuration Errors that you didn't have before.

There have been quite a few new validation checks added over that period 2013->2020

 

You should do the import on an offline database first, after having done an audit on the errors present in the 2013 DB, so that you can compare it to the 2020 DB.

Re: ClearSCADA 2013

On paper you should be able to do this with no problem, but given the jump in major versions (~7 years) there may be some oddities depending so test it first if you can.

Re: ClearSCADA 2013

What objects are within the .SDE?

 

If you can tell us that, then we could possibly provide some ideas of things to watch out for.  But there are a lot of possible objects.. so just providing all possible cautions would be a bit onerous for us.
