Hello!

I tried it on our backup machine. Looks good, small problems while
upgrading.

I’ve started from the installation dir
"perl etc/upgrade/split-out-cf-categories"
this don’t work it was complaining about a missing
Module (RTx/EmailCompletion.pm)

I started the script from the target dir,
this seems to work.

A detailed explanation what it is about the
hierarchical custom fields would be helpful

regards!

Check the use lib lines in your script, it should be setting your
installed paths to avoid this issue

A detailed explanation what it is about the
hierarchical custom fields would be helpful

Edit a select one custom field and you’ll see a
"Categories are based on" option. That links the two CFs and means
you’ll now have two Custom Fields that work together in the UI, rather
than the older style category CF. This also means you can search on
both the category and the sub-value.
