Dear Dhanunjay,

                        You can migrate the Custom MDF objects to other SuccessFactors Instance, FO & MDF custom field that you have created can be migrated using Import and Export Data tool or Synchronize Instance Configurations in Admin Center.

And, also please advise on how to migrate standard FO & MDF objects from one Instance to another.

Dear Abubakar,

Thanks for sharing the link, It is clearly mentioned that how to migrate from one instance to the other, if you want to migrate, that process will help you,but if you want to migrate a selected FO or MDF object use Import and Export data.

Export the data from the old instance and Import it to the new one.

Alex

Thanks Alex, appreciate your swift reply. The link we are referring to is talking about migrating "Custom MDF Objects" however, you clearly mentioned in your previous reply that it's not possible to migrate Custom MDF Objects to other instance then how can we conclude this, plz advise.

I am sorry, The custom fields also can be migrated, from one to the another using both the option.
