Good morning I would like to get some possible reference in regards to exporting a jira project with all it's dependencies that would include custom workflows, item types, schemas and custom fields from once server instance into another From DEV to QA instance Are there a specific set of steps that need to take place and can it be one stop process or these items need to be exported and imported individually All I need is to export one project not all of them since this particular project has all customizations Thank you
Not possible in plain JIRA - an export is everything and then you have to manually create all the schemes and project and then you can import the data for the project from the full export.

When I want to have a look on the zip-file(IZArc), I get the message "Bad zip header found". Only one file (entities.xml, size 0) exists.
So I decided to make an automatic backup. I created a Backupservice:
Next day it was the same like above. A zip-file was created (same size and also "bad zip-header").
What do I make wrong ?
I think a more current version of how to do this is now here:
I am mentioning, since Google brought me here; so it might bring other lost souls.
