Reuploading Scan Results
If the same source is being uploaded more than once, the most recently uploaded source replaces the previously uploaded one.
Based on certain fields found in the scan results, migVisor considers a source to be the same as a previous one. If two sources have the same exact values in those fields, they are considered to be from the same source. If they do not all completely match a previous one, migVisor considers the scan to be a new source.
For RDBMS sources, migVisor uses the combined attribute that consists of:
For NoSQL sources, migVisor uses the Cluster ID alone.
