Hi Shilen,

ah! I had missed that step when I switched over to look at the 1.6->2.1
upgrade instructions. That's solved the issue, I can now see the attributes
migrated over.

Thanks very much for the assistance :).

The upgrade should have migrated the legacy attributes to the attribute
framework and they should still be visible in the admin UI (not the new UI).

Did you run the postGrouper2_2Upgrade.gsh script as part of the upgrade?
If so, do you have the output from that? If you query the view
GROUPER_AVAL_ASN_ASN_GROUP_V, do you see your legacy attributes there?
