Can you move an issue between backlogs

Hi all

I am new to JIRA and was wondering if its possible to

1. Move issues from 1 backlog to another or from (1 project to another).

Intending to create a Main Backlog for capturing all issues and a Release Backlog where I can move issues to be worked on from the Main backlog

Hope this makes sense, I am on v6.2

Marshal, it's definitely possible to move an issue from one project to another, see That being said, the backlogs are filtered using the board's filter, so as long as the filter from the other board picks up the change the issue will appear in the second board.

I hope this helps!
