Migration API

Migrate your content to Prismic with speed and confidence

Experience a smooth content migration with Prismic's Migration API. Transfer content to Prismic fast and without hiccups.

Hi everyone,

Alaina here, excited to bring you a significant update from our team at Prismic! After numerous discussions with developers across our community, especially those working in agencies, we’ve recognized a critical challenge: migrating content from other CMS platforms to Prismic is often seen as a tedious and lengthy process.

So, I’m thrilled to announce the launch of our brand new Migration API!

This API will allow you to streamline your development processes and support you in launching faster with Prismic.

Why did we create the Migration API?

Our interviews highlighted the need for a native content migration process. In most cases, the primary use is to facilitate the transfer of your content from any CMS to Prismic. A secondary use case we also heard about is to manage bulk updates efficiently or import externally generated content, such as translations. The Migration API is designed to simplify these tasks significantly.

Key release milestones:

  • Beta release: We launched the beta version to get your firsthand feedback in September 2023.
  • Localization capabilities: Creation of a document that is a translation of an existing document was introduced in October, 2023.
  • Enhanced support: The API now supports legacy slices and integration fields as of January 2024.
  • Quicker publication: We added the migration release, which allowed publication of up to 1,000 migrated documents with one click, in December, 2024 and are now planning on scaling that capacity further in Q3 2024.
  • Simplified content transformation: We provided scripts to facilitate every step of migration, demonstrating how to go from HTML files to Prismic pages with images, document links and Prismic RichText format, in March 2024.
  • Future-ready: We deprecated our older Import/Export functionality in April 2024 in favor of this more robust API.

How this benefits you

The Migration API isn’t just about making migrations quicker; it’s about enhancing your overall workflow, enabling you to launch websites faster and with fewer complications, and allowing you to spend your development time on features that will generate growth for your company.

This is part of our ongoing commitment to refine our tools in alignment with your direct needs, collected through continuous interactions with you, our user community.
