Why don't you try to:
1/ do backup-restore (because that's sure, nothing will be lost). This step might be important since you will be able to do some data transformation (if XML, for instance)
2/ then modify in the new install to your desired stuff (you will maybe script this part, create, move CFs data, remove unused CFs, etc). This part is tricky, but it's doable.
my 2 cents.
Edited: I added more explanations, hope the idea is ok. At least you will deal with knowns, not unknowns :)
That is pretty close to what we have done. We are always backing up our data and we have build the new projects in a second parallel instance. All we need to do now is migrate the data via our script. When we did this we didn't get any of the GreenHopper data, (no boards existed) just the JIRA data. We are not sure why, so I am looking here for clues.
"we have build the new projects in a second parallel instance" => I think this is where the problem lies. You should move data + schema all toghether, then modify your install to look like the one you desire.
The alternative is to touch the GH data as well (and this is actually your question). I'm afraid it will be a very dangerous task ... unless guided by support. If you want to continue on this path, I advice you to ask for support at Atl
Accroding to the following documentation, the Greenhopper data should transfer with the JIRA data: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/GH/Backing+Up+and+Restoring+Data
So hopefully that should work for you.
All the best,
I looked at that documentation before posting here. We are not doing a restore, this is not a copy or database snapshot. I will be using different fields for data in the new standard build that did not exist or have different field ids than the first build. This is why I can't use that restore documentation. This move, as far as I know, needs to be a scripted migration. We have developed a field map that tells the script what field data from the old system goes into what new field in the standards build. This works very well when we are moving JIRA data. Unfortuately, we did not do this migration before adding GreenHopper(GH). Now I need to also migrate GH boards so we do not lose our project planning data. It is only this last part that I don't know how to do. I'm hoping to find out where that GH board and report data is stored so that I can just copy those saved settings. The JIRA ticket info on the GH cards in not a problem. That will change as the JIRA fields change.
