How to migrate projects from one JIRA Cloud application to another
This Knowledge Base article is written specifically for the Atlassian Cloud platform. It's not applicable to Atlassian Server customers.
At the present moment there is no project import available for JIRA Cloud applications. As a workaround customers can follow the guide in this KB.
If the target instance has some data to be kept then please follow How to merge two different JIRA Cloud applications together.
If the target instance has nothing to be kept (clean new instance):
- You can prepare a full export of your backup with attachments using the JIRA Backup Manager as per Exporting issues.
- Import the backup generated above to your new Cloud instance as per How to restore a JIRA Cloud application backup into another JIRA Cloud application.
- Delete any unwanted projects.
- Disable users which are not needed (as it will import all users from the destination instance) by removing them from all groups and application access.
