My team needs to consolidate multiple Jira Cloud classic projects into a new project (on the same instance). We plan to do this using the bulk move function, and I understand that the references to the old issue keys (e.g. in issue links and comments) will redirect the user to the new issue keys.
Other than mapping the issues types, custom fields, workflows, status, user permissions, are there any other configurations we need to consider?
Is it possible to delete the old projects after all the issues have been moved over to the the new project? Will the reference to the old issue keys be retained after the old projects are deleted?
I'm wondering what is the impact to the old issue keys used in:
Appreciate your advice and suggestions.
Thanks and regards,
I shall attempt to answer my own question. :-)
My colleague and I did some tests in a cloud instance with Jira, Confluence and Bitbucket. We observed the following after moving issues to another project and deleted the old project:
Used a saved filter which queries issues from several different projects.
A) In Jira Cloud
Did not work
B) In Confluence Cloud (with randomly picked macros)
Did not work
C) In Bitbucket Cloud
Only within Jira, the new issue keys are displayed when viewing
Bitbucket continues to display the old issue keys with hyperlinks after the issues are moved. These are then redirected to the correct new issue keys. However when the old project is deleted, the old issue keys became plain text, the hyperlinks are lost.
Considerations when moving issues to another project, and when deleting a project
Not sure if I've missed out anything else. Comments and suggestions are welcomed.
