Over time, your organisation's requirements may change. This can lead to needing to:

  • Archive a completed or obsolete project.
  • Split a large JIRA instance into several JIRA instances, with particular projects in each.
  • Restore a single project from a backup file into a JIRA instance.
  • Restore an entire JIRA instance, from a backup into a new empty JIRA instance.
