Hi, how are you planning on "doing a migration between cloud instances"?

Will you be using the following process?

If so, I would change the project key after you've imported the data into Data Center. You'll have more control and visibility into the indexing process.

Hi Darryl

I am using migration assistant I am asking this because one of my project name is actually a reserved word of windows operating system While extracting the backup to copy the attachments extraction fails, So I have decided to change the key of the project on the cloud before making backup for migration.

Ah thanks for clarifying.

I wonder if in this case you don't need to worry about reindexing, since that's primarily used for speeding up search results.

I'm thinking that if you just change a project key, you could immediately do a backup and that backup should have the new key, because I don't believe backups include indexes.

Like Muhammad likes this

Just to confirm, the backup process doesn't even look at the index when building the export.

Thanks @Darryl Lee  and @Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ 

I would give it a try on a test account. 
your reply made me to feel relaxed :)
