Migrate tickets from one project to other project in one jira



Current project query : 
project = "ABC" AND Team = "Upgrade" AND type = "Test" ORDER BY cf[14961] ASC


Planned to Move below  :

project = "DEF" AND Team = "lower" AND type = "Test" ORDER BY cf[14961] ASC.

 project = "ABC" related tickets (500+) needs to move project = "DEF".

Please help  me in query .



I am not sure what you are looking for here.

To move issues from one project to another, run a search for the ones you want to move ( for example  "project = ABC" ) and then use "bulk edit -> move" from the tools menu.

Note tht you need to havethe three permissions:

  • the global "bulk edit"
  • "Move issue" in the source project
  • "Create issue" in the target



I Think you will have to do it in two steps.

1. Move the issues to the new project. 

2. Change the team.


To do this, go to the issue navigator and use your first query to identify the issues to move. Then go to tools (top right of your screen) and choose Bulk Edit.

In this wizard you can select to move the issues to the new project. 

Then go to the issue navigator and select the issues you just moved (for example select with project = def and team=Upgrade, maybe you need more attributes) and use bulk edit again to change the team.

In my Jira, i am not getting "Bulk edit" option.I am not sure may be admin blocked that option. Thats the reason i am trying to move through Jql query.

Could you please help me on Jql query?

JQL finds issues.  It does not do changes or reporting on them.

If you want edit/move/etc on many issues returned by a JQL search, then you do it with bulk-edit

You will need your admins to grant you the permission to do it.
