Ionic pro and old projects migration

I have some ionic v1 projects for which I use the upload/deploy functionality to push my changes to my users. I use the client side cloud functions to pull updates.

Yesterday while login into the dashboard I was asked to upgrade to the pro version which I did prompty. Now I have an empty dashboard. At some point I was able to go to my legacy dashboard but can’t find how anymore. My app is not uploading anymore. I get an error telling me the pro version doesn’t handle that.

[ERROR] Sorry! The configured backend (pro) does not know about ionic upload.

I tried to follow the direction to migrate my app to the pro dashboard but that doesn’t seem to work. I have my own github account and obviously can’t create a new git repo in that directory.

I just wish changes were incremental. I have no problem paying some money for a great product but what now?

cli packages: (/home/pascal/projects/wep4-mobile/node_modules)

@ionic/cli-utils  : 1.9.2
ionic (Ionic CLI) : 3.9.2

global packages:

Cordova CLI : 7.0.0 
Gulp CLI    : CLI version 3.8.11 Local version 3.8.11

local packages:

Cordova Platforms : android 6.1.2
Ionic Framework   : ionic1 1.3.3


Android SDK Tools : 25.2.5
Node              : v6.10.3
npm               : 5.3.0 
OS                : Linux 4.8

No-one has any real experience, so we other users here can’t really help with that. Sorry :confused:

Read through these if you haven’t already:

You can also contact support and ask them what to do:

Old dashboard should be here:

Keep us updated if you make any progress - I guess other users will have similar problems and be very happy if they find at least something.

I have been reading through all the docs and making small progress. I saw an other user opt out of pro. Wonder how he did that. It was never my intention to change. Just wanted to help by giving my CC since I value what ionic did


I moved back from pro to legacy to test differences between old ionic view and new.

Use legacy keyword to set the backend

ionic config set -g backend legacy

I then used

ionic link 

to link the project back to one of the apps registered in the old dashboard

Works fine here.
