Importing Jira Boards, Filters and Dashboards from a server instance to a (different) Data Center



We are moving a project from one Jira instance (a server) to another Jira instance  (a  Data Center). I don't think it makes a difference. Is there a way we can bulk import the boards, filters and dashboards? If you have tried something and if it worked please share. We have a looot of filters 😢.

@Kalai - I've used Botron's Configuration Manager in the past. You can free trial it and see if it suits your needs.

That app supports the snapshotting of systems, or projects and their boards, filters, and dashboards.

Thanks for the input @Dave Liao !

It didn't work out for moving project configurations in our case (when I tried a couple of years ago). So we decided to the import this time by redoing the config and importing data this time which worked well. I'll try this out for the boards, filters and let you know how it goes.

@Kalai - the vendor definitely updates their app. It's pretty awesome!*

* they didn't pay me to write this 😅

OK  😀   

I was wrong, I tried this not the Botron's Configuration Manager

So that's good news, let me try it out!  🤞🏽

Oh interesting... well, that vendor keeps their tool updated, too! According to their documentation, they also support boards, filters, and dashboards... 💙

Well,  we were trying to copy configurations from one Jira to another and it didn't workout. I don't remember all the details though. To be fair, I do use other apps from the vendor which work very well for us.
