I started migration using ppa-transfer generate-migration-list config.ini command, but it failed with error below:

ProtocolError: <ProtocolError for admin:pass%12@ 401 Unauthorized>
[ERROR] | Unexpected error: '<ProtocolError for admin:pass%12@ 401 Unauthorized>', migration is aborted. See the traceback above for more information.


Password with special symbol '%' could not be properly passed via API request, as a result authorization fails. The issue is considered to be as a software issue, internal request it #TP-144350. It will be fixed in future product updates.


As a workaround you may want to change password to another one without symbol '%'.
