Hello @Francis Mullett ,

Welcome to the community!


You can try the following steps maybe it resolve your issue


  1. Use the Jira Backup Manager to create and export a backup of your Jira Cloud site. Make sure to include attachments in the export.
  2. Import the backup to your new cloud site.
  3. Delete any unwanted projects.
  4. Disable any unwanted users by removing them from all groups and application access.


Thanks & Regards,

Zulfiqar Bin Zafar

Thank you for your help with this! Really appreciated

If you only need/want one project consider a manual approach:

if you are open to addon solutions check the Marketplace for apps like - deep-clone-for-jira . Note I have not used the aforementioned app but it seems popular in the Community. Personally I would likely go this route as I could cancel the app once complete. You might be able to complete within the trial period. ;)

Hi @Francis Mullett 

In Jira Premium Account, you have a Cloud Migration feature where you can migrate projects from one instance to another. Try this one and it's easy.


Raise the ticket with the support team if you don't see one in the System settings
