Hi @khushboo_puri , 

The Jira Cloud Migration Assistant just copies data to your cloud site (nothing is removed from Jira Server). 

For more information on the different migration methods, check out this video

In addition to previous questions, i will suggest you to setup a test cloud enviroment and perform a test migration there to see the results.


As already said but other members, you Jira Server data will remain untouched. So no worries its a safe procedure.
