Exclude and Restore Resources in Calculations

You can exclude applications, compute instances, custom groups, and networks from all calculations you perform in Migrate.

For example, you might want to exclude networks that are internal-only, or applications that are going to stay on-premises.

You can also restore the excluded resources so they are included in calculations.

For Compute Instances and Applications

Steps

  1. Navigate to the Inventory page.

  2. In a table column, right-click over an item and select Exclude from Calculations.
