If I move my jira issues from one project to another what happens for closed sprints and issues?

Hi Team,

I have one scenario, I want to move all my jira issues from one project to another. After moving what happened with closed sprints and user stories? What would be the status of them on new project?

HI @Yogesh Vinayakrao Kulkarni 

On moving issues to another project, you will be asked what to do with the status if the workflow(s) differ.

You sprint information will be carried over as well, but the reporting can differ on information.

This concerns the burn up and burn down and the velocity reporting on the target project will be impacted.

This is a bit of a complicated one, there's two bits to think about.

The issue will retain the data that matters to the sprint - specifically the estimates, status, and that it was included in an active sprint.  (If you search for "sprint = X" you will find the issue, even if it has moved to a different project)

But.  If the issue no longer meets the criteria to be included on the board the sprint was created from or now has a status that is not mapped or has changed whether it is in the done or any not-done column, it will look like it was removed from the sprint.  Your sprint reports will show this.
