What are you migrating from and to?

  • server to cloud
  • Cloud to cloud

I see that you have listed as being on free cloud if that’s this the intended target then care will need to be taken depending on what you are migrating from as you could lose capability.

Have you investigated any migration documentation if so please share exactly what you have referenced and why that does not work for you.

And thanks for the reply

Here is info from server to cloud - use-jira-site-import-to-migrate-from-server-to-cloud 

For Cloud to cloud migration I definitely would do the back up and restore option referenced in the article you shared. However if you want to manually pull over issues then you could follow a process something like this:

  1. create projects in the target instance to receive imported issues. This includes setting up your workflows, fill configurations screens etc.
  2. in the from instance, Export the issues for one project at a time to CSV
  3. import one project at a time using the CSV from #2
