Does anyone else feel like Project Configurator needs some safeguards?

I've been doing some work with Project Configurator in the past few weeks, exporting projects from one instance and importing to another, and every time I go to do an import my anxiety ramps up.  Its so easy for things to go catastrophically wrong and there's nothing you can do about it:

  • There are no confirmation dialogs for ANYTHING, which is incredibly dangerous, given the next bullet
  • There's no way to stop an import after it starts
  • There is no way to tell what you are importing once it starts.  The progress bar only shows that an import is in progress. There is no project key shown on screen.
  • There are no warnings shown, for example when updating existing objects during project import
  • There is no way to get back to the progress window if there is an accidental navigation away, or if the tab closes

Don't get me wrong, this is a great tool, but there aren't a lot of protection measures in place.  People are people - mistakes happen.  In this case they're irreversible.

Hi @Rob Horan 

Thanks for this great feedback I will make sure this gets passed along to the team.  

Whilst I am certainly not able to comment on when these could be implemented the Project Configurator team do take in to account any feedback and the likely impact in deciding what functionality to develop next. 

Adaptavist provide a support portal for all our products at and we particularly invite suggestions for new features or improvements to be submitted. 

One area of feedback that we have recently addressed was the quality of the documentation and this was launched as a new website with specific content for Project Configurator at

Please keep this excellent feedback coming via whatever method works best for you - Atlassian Community or direct to the Product Support portal for Adaptavist.
