Default jira configuration

Hi All,

I'm researching for an approach how to deal with default jira configuration. I have default jira configuration with all projects, workflows, fields, issue types, etc configured. I need to export all this already set details and to import them to brand new jira instance.

All ideas are welcome :) 

Thanks in advance

Is it ok to replace all data in the new Jira instance? If so, I suggest you to

  1. dump DB with Jira data
  2. restore DB to NEW Jira instance database
  3. copy {jira-home}/data to {jira-home} in NEW Jira
  4. copy {jira-home}/plugins to {jira-home} in NEW Jira
  5. start your NEW Jira and do full reindex

You could use XML backup and restore process but as described here, it is better to use native DB backup and restore -

It is ok everything to be replaced.

Your suggestion maybe will work for me.

I have only one concern about it. How to deal with some unique Jira properties such as Server ID which will be replaced as well?   

Good point, I'm checking on two environments, one environment is clone of another and these properties are same on both instances. We are using it as testing environments so this behaviour is OK for us, but if your environments are production env, it might be problem.

Solution could be to dump DB as SQL for both instances and replace particular parts of SQL with SQL from New instance, but it might be complicated :(
