We are planning to migrate from server variant to cloud. And here are the following details.
Jira Version - 6.4.11
Jira Service Desk is installed as add-on and its version is - 2.5.9
Now we have the cloud model purchased for JSD, Jira Software and have made the relevant configurations.
Can you please suggest the best method of approach to migrate the whole data?
Thanks and Regards,
Ganesh Babu J
As the documentation for cloud migration says:
Upgrade your Jira Server to the latest version, export it and then import it into an empty Cloud site. This will overwrite your "relevant configurations" of course.
You'll need to read up on Cloud merges, not migration.
These are several orders of magnitude harder. You either need a complicated "download Cloud, merge on server, re-upload to Cloud" process, or you will need to accept potentially massive data loss.
Start by having a think about what you want to merge in - what loss of data are you willing to live with?
@Nic Brough _Adaptavist_ yes i looked on the docs on merging systems.
Here is what i have planned, can you please suggest on the approach shared here
