JIRA Project migration from Test to Prod: Suggestions

Hi Team,


We’re working on building a huge Project for our clients based on their requirement in JIRA lower environment.

Once the testing is completed, it is required to migrate the entire project to the higher(Production) environment.


We could oversee a lot of Manual potential that needs to be in place to achieve the production move in the conventional method by replicating all the steps done in lower environment. Also, the other thread is on ACCURACY, since lot of manual work is involved.


Please help us by suggesting any workaround for the Production migration to avoid manual work and to achieve accuracy.


Please consider this as high priority, since we’re facing a short deadline.


Thanks for the extended support,


Prem Sree

If it is only a single project migration from, we can use third party plugins to do the job mentioned here


Other way of doing that is to (i would prefer doing it via plugin as mentioned above)

- Create Project configurations like Components, Releases, Schemes using REST API's

- Export Jira issues with required fields as csv from staging.

- Import Jira issues on to Production after making all Project Configuration ready before hand.
