Unable to restore database from xml Edited

Hi guys, we were trying to migrate database from mysql to postgres database,

following the instructions, but we ended up with error.
What is happening???

Error importing data: org.xml.sax.SAXException: com.atlassian.jira.exception.DataAccessException: org.ofbiz.core.entity.GenericEntityException: while inserting: 
.........

(SQL Exception while executing the following:INSERT INTO public.jiraaction (ID, issueid, AUTHOR, actiontype, actionlevel, rolelevel, actionbody, CREATED, UPDATEAUTHOR, UPDATED, actionnum) VALUES (?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?, ?) (ERROR: invalid byte sequence for encoding "UTF8": 0x00))

You have characters in your MySQL data that your Postgres database is not set up to support.

I would take the xml you've downloaded from the mysql service and run the xml cleaner on it first - see https://confluence.atlassian.com/jira/removing-invalid-characters-from-xml-backups-12079.html

Thank you very much. Looks like it is the reason.

Found the record, and it works now
