Advanced Roadmaps migration now supported in the Jira Cloud Migration Assistant

image-20201008-155621 (3) (2).png


Over the past year, we’ve accelerated our investment in Atlassian’s Cloud Migration Assistants to account for the different types of data that our customers need to move to Cloud.

Today, we’re excited to announce that you can now migrate Advanced Roadmaps plans, projects, users, and groups using the Jira Cloud Migration Assistant.

The launch of this beta program adds to the momentum we’ve already been building so far this year. Over the last few months, we’ve launched the capability to migrate Jira Service Management data and to automatically migrate app data using the Jira Cloud Migration Assistant.


How to access the Jira Cloud Migration Assistant: The tool is already installed in Jira 8.14 and above and can also be downloaded from the Atlassian Marketplace. Learn more about how to use Jira Cloud Migration Assistant.


Advanced Roadmaps migration using the Jira Cloud Migration Assistant has been in early access since September. During that period, we received valuable customer and Solution Partner feedback that has shaped and improved the tool we're now bringing to market. 


Here’s a list of the Advanced Roadmaps data that is migrated vs. what isn't migrated:

How to migrate Advanced Roadmaps data using the Jira Cloud Migration Assistant

The Jira Cloud Migration Assistant enables you to migrate Advanced Roadmap plans, and associated projects, single-project boards, users, and groups.

Before you begin migrating Advanced Roadmaps

If you have Jira Core in your server instance, make sure you have Jira Work Management added in your destination cloud site. Depending on the number of Jira Core users you've in your server instance, you may need to upgrade to the Jira Work Management Standard plan.

Once your select your destination cloud site, you must: 

  1. Select Advanced Roadmaps plans followed by projects, users and groups, Jira Service Management customer (if you have Jira Service Management), and any apps.Screenshot 2021-12-13 at 11.34.26 AM (1).png

  2. With the Advanced Roadmaps Beta release, you’ll need to migrate all Advanced Roadmaps plans.

Hi @Rob Horan - I'm so happy to hear that you're excited about this news! Thanks for that feedback.

We decided not to send an email about this Public Beta launch, but will be updating customers by email about tooling launches later this year. In the meantime, definitely bookmark the Cloud migrations collection in Community. It's typically where we spread the word about new migration launches!
