If you are migrating projects to a cloud site with existing data that needs to be kept, follow the instructions for merging multiple Jira Cloud sites.

If you are migrating projects to a new cloud site with no existing data, follow the steps below:

  1. Use the Jira Backup Manager to create and export a backup of your Jira Cloud site. Make sure to include attachments in the export.
  2. Import the backup to your new cloud site.

  3. Delete any unwanted projects.

  4. Disable any unwanted users by removing them from all groups and application access.
