Update: After December 17, 2021, we will end support of the Jira Data Center Migration app and installations will no longer be possible. For more information and resources, you can read this Community post.
We’re pleased to introduce our new Jira Data Center Migration App. This new Marketplace app helps you migrate your Jira instance to clustered Data Center infrastructure on AWS. It’s optimized for up to Large-sized Jira instances, and it automates two of the most complicated migration tasks:
Deploying well-configured and secure clustered infrastructure for Jira Data Center
Migrating the majority of your Jira data to this new instance
Note: At present, the app is only compatible with Jira Software 7.13.0 (and later) instances that use a supported PostgreSQL database.
The Jira Data Center Migration App uses our fully-supported AWS Quick Start templates for Jira to deploy optimal infrastructure. These templates help you customize Jira Data Center for the unique needs of your enterprise while applying best-practice defaults on critical settings.
Once the app deploys your new infrastructure, it will migrate the following Jira components:
You’ll still need to perform some manual tasks after migration, such as:
a full Jira re-index
re-integrating third-party services (for example, SAML SSO)
migrating custom apps (if needed)
The Jira Data Center Migration App performs all of its tasks in a self-contained manner, which means the app won’t affect your instance’s existing data. As such, you can review and test the new deployment with your data before applying it on production. This lets you safely test the app's deployment and data transfer multiple times without risking data loss or corruption.
The app sets up clustered infrastructure on AWS and migrates your Jira data to it. Clustering is only supported on a Jira Data Center license. So you’ll need a Data Center license in order to continue using your new Jira instance on AWS.
You’ll also need an AWS account, as the app will use your AWS credentials to provision infrastructure.
The Jira Data Center Migration App is free to all Jira users and fully supported by Atlassian.
