Question on transfering repositories between workspaces

We are considering transferring a number of repositories from a private workspace, to the corporate (premium) workspace. I ve read the procedure description on how to trigger the transfer sequence from the source workspace, but it is yet not clear what will happen to the original repo. Does it become obsolete? 

The background is that our code holds references to repo urls in various points, so we need our original repo in place to continue development, while we work on adjusting the url references in the new repo.

Transferring does not copy the repository, it moves it by assigning it to a new owner (the new workspace).

To answer your question, the "original repo" becomes obsolete since it no longer exists in the original workspace - the new home will be the new workspace.

If you want to copy the repository, you can clone or fork it in the new workspace. Perhaps you could use a forking workflow temporarily before moving it over, and then deleting the fork once everything is in the new workspace.

Thank you Tyler,

it is clear!
