Migration Jira Cloud to DC, and original DC data cannot be overwritten



My company has organized a JIRA DC site, which is already in use by many departments.

My boss hopes to  move the cloud sites data which in use by small team into this DC site.

Therefore, the cloud data should be added to the existing JIRA DC, and the original data or project in JIRA(DC) cannot be overwritten.

The cloud-to-DC solution I have inquired will cover the entire ground-end environment, and the original data will be lost. This does not meet our needs. Could anyone please give me some advice?

Hi @Ellie Chen

This is Majid @ Exalate.

Can you please provide some more details here? Does the destination project already have issues and you want to add the cloud issues to the same project? Or do the issues already exist on both ends and it is a matter of updating the correct ones? I believe you can utilize an integration solution to act as the migration agent here. I would urge you to look at Exalate that, although, is not designed as a migration solution, works very well in these scenarios. 

Please feel free to book a customized demo if you would like to see the product in action.
