Zephyr test cases migration

I want to migrate my Zephyr test cases from one server to another.Old JIRA version is v7.3.6,and the new one is v7.6.1.

I try to export Zephyr test cases with CSV file,but I have detailed test steps in my tests, they CANNOT be imported using this mechanism. It makes me very upset...

Please give me some solutions.

Thank you.

Hi Xueying,

I have had considerable trouble trying to export/import test cases in the past as well. The only solution I have come up with is this:

Create a Test CYCLE with all of the test cases that you want to export. It is important that this is a test cycle so all of the test steps will be exported as well. Export this cycle as a .CSV file. This should contain the test name, description and steps. It will not give you any attachments associated with the test. Once you have this file you can open it in MS Excel and view the data. Make a note of which data each column contains. 

Next you will need to use the Zephyr for JIRA importer Utility: 


Knowing the data from the columns in the file you exported, use the utility to map cwhere it will all be loaded when you import it to the new server. 


I hope this helps. good luck!
