We are considering migrating from Jira Cloud to Jira Data Center. Will automations transfer successfully, what difficulties may arise, and how can they be addressed? Thank you!

Hi @DenJr 

You can export all rules from Cloud as a single JSON file and import that JSON in your DC instance. This will import all rules as disabled and you can enable them 1 by 1.

While the import is certainly helpful it does not take care of everything. IDs can be different on both environments. e.g. an automation rules creates an issue of type Task with ID 5. If issue type with ID 5 is a bug on your DC instance it will create a bug instead.
So be careful, you need to validate your rules where it uses IDs.

The export is a JSON so you could also prepare/ script the changes in the JSON file before importing.

Also make sure the "rule actor" of the automation rules have the necessary permissions on DC.
