How do you refresh your "sandbox" with production data?

Jess Atlassian Team Dec 14, 2021

Hi Patricia,

To copy data from your production environment:

  1. Select the name of your organization at admin.atlassian.com to access your organization Administration overview.
  2. Go to Products Sandbox.
  3. Under Actions in the product table, select Copy production data.
  4. Choose copy with media files or without media files, select Copy data.
    (Copying without media files can decrease the time it takes to copy data into your sandbox)

Hey Jess,

 

Hope you are doing well and staying safe!

 

we recently moved to JIRA cloud as a premium customer (around 1 week back), and I am not too familiar on JIRA release deployment process yet.

 

Currently, we have picked the approach where, first the release is deployed to JIRA SandBox, and then after one month, the release is deployed to JIRA PROD.

 

During that 1 month of period after the release is deployed to SandBox, we are planning to do a small testing round from our end. I am having two queries about this process as below

 

1. When we recieve the release to SandBox, will we get a release note on the list of changes deployed to SandBox?

2. Also, if we encounter any issues with the SandBox release, can we request Atlassian to hold the release deployment to our PROD, till they fix those issues?

 

Cheers,

Hansi

Hi Hansi,

Thanks! I hope you're staying safe too.

If you're using our release tracks feature (it sounds like you are), and have your sandbox on either the bundled or preview track, you'll get an email with the list of upcoming changes a month before the changes roll out. You can also watch our cloud release notes blog. Learn more about our release tracks if you aren't using them.

The changes will still roll out to your production environment after they've rolled out to your sandbox. The changes go through a soak period and are rolled out to the bundled track last after being rolled out to production for all other continuous track production environments for at least a month. 

Let me know if you have any concerns.

Jess
