Step 5: Use Strategy Recommendations in the Migration Hub console to get recommendations

To get recommendations

  1. Using the AWS account that you created in Setting up Strategy Recommendations, sign in to the AWS Management Console and open the Migration Hub console at

  2. In the Migration Hub console navigation pane, choose Strategy.

  3. On the Migration Hub Strategy Recommendations page, choose Get recommendations.

  4. Choose Agree if you agree to allow Migration Hub to create a service-linked role (SLR) in your account. For more information about the SLR, see Using service-linked roles for Strategy Recommendations.

  5. Configure data sources

    1. On the Configure data sources page, the application data collectors that you've set up are listed under Registered application data collectors. If you haven't set up any collectors yet, you can download the collector from this page and then go to Step 2: Deploy the Strategy Recommendations collector.

      To get strategy recommendations, you must set up at least one application data collector or an application data import. If you want to add your application-level data without setting up a collector, use the application data import template. You can add more data sources at a later time.

    2. Under Import details, choose Add new import to upload your filled out import template file. Specify the name for your import and the S3 bucket URI for your import file.

    3. Choose Next.

  6. Specify preferences

    1. On the Specify preferences page, set up your business goals and migration preferences. Strategy Recommendations recommends the optimal strategy for migrating and modernizing your applications and databases based on the preferences that you specify. You can change these preferences at a later time.

    2. Choose Next.

  7. Review and submit.

    1. Review your configured data sources and migration preferences.

    2. If everything looks correct, choose Start data analysis.
