This documentation is not using the current rendering mechanism and is probably outdated. The extension maintainer should switch to the new system. Details on how to use the rendering mechanism can be found here.
The migration tasks can be long running processes. Therefore they are executed using the command line dispatcher.
You can execute the dispathcer from the root of your website:
The available migration tasks can be found under the extbase cliKey:
./typo3/cli_dispatch.phpsh extbase help The following commands are currently available: EXTENSION "DAM_FALMIGRATION": ------------------------------------------------------------------------------- dammigration:migratedamrecords Migrates all DAM records to FAL.

Some commands accept parameters. See './typo3/cli_dispatch.phpsh extbase help <command identifier>' for more information about a specific command.
Please see the Command Reference for an explanation of the commands.
In general you will want to execute the commands 'migratedamrecords' and 'migratemetadata' first. After that you may wish to migrate the tx_dam_mm_ref table to sys_file_reference by running the 'migraterelations' command.
