Best way to import Jira Agile information into other jira instance

We are in process of merging two jira instances into one. We moved projects from one instance to another by creating backup in first jira instance and importing projects into second instance. All is ok except jira Agile boards.

We noticed that jira Project import functionality has problems with Agile Boards (

So we manually created Agile Boards with active Sprints. Now we are trying to import information of all closed Sprints and related issues. All suggestions are welcome.

Is approach with adding records directly into customfieldvalue table (for issue about Sprint) acceptable?

Example: INSERT INTO customfieldvalue (id, issue, customfield, stringvalue) VALUES (1149355, 154623, 11935, 13247);
