Update Migration Failed – Swatches misassigned


We updated manually the Pro version of this plugin yesterday. Briefly all of the swatches disappeared, then after we reactived the newly updated pro plugin. Some kind of migration scheduled action started and some of the swatches slowly started coming back.

This migration then failed  when it hit the 300 second PHP timeout limit. (Which is already pretty high)

Now it has left loads of swatches abandoned and misassigned to the wrong variations and/or colours all over the site.

We have a backup of before this migration but being an eCommerce site it’s not as simple as just reverting due to the loss of orders and customer information. There is of course also no guarantee that this migration won’t just fail again.

Is there anyway to get this migration to finish and/or continue or start again?

This is the error in action scheduler
