Hi Nicolas,

Migrating cloud to cloud, the portfolio data should come through without issue, you will want to follow the "Migrating from one Cloud instance to another Cloud instance" guide using a Site backup method, and importing to the new cloud site with the portfolio application in place, and you should be good to go once migrated over.

However there is a issue with migrating next-gen project types currently, and as Portfolio is not compatible with Next-Gen project types you should not have any next-gen projects tied to the Portfolio plans unless you are ok with the limitations covered in "Portfolio for Jira next-gen support"  so the only limitation to look out for currently is if there is any next-gen project data coming over in the migration, covered in the XML migration document "Exporting issues" :

Currently, exports that include next-gen software projects won't include any epic link or other relationship data between epics and their children issues. This is a known error and we're working to fix it. Thanks for your patience.
