How to create a sample project in Jira online with sample data


I am new to Jira and trying to follow a "getting started" doc I found (privately) and it mentions creating a new project with sample data. I am not seeing the options described there. I created a project anyway but there's no sample data options that I can find. Is this feature available? 

"Click on Create sample project. This is an optional project that you can create. It has more realistic sample data than the projects that you will create from scratch in this course."



Create a Sample Project option is available only in Jira Server Edition. In cloud edition it is available not under 'Create project' but it is available under existing board settings where you can select "Create a new board". It will then give you an option to "Create a Scrum board with sample data" and also create a new project with it as shown above.

Thank you. This was exactly what I was searching for.

Riya you should consider teaching lol. Worked like magic 


I have the same problem.   <--- am I in the cloud version or server edition? I see no where where I can go to board setting to get to your screenshot. 

This looks promising but alas I cannot find any "Board Settings." I think probably the same issue as described here:


I  will try again this weekend and start over as mentioned in that thread. 

Although the answer is written already. But I have written a step by step article on generating the sample project data in Jira Cloud instance.

I hope this will be useful for somebody.

Hi guys,

On the top bar, click on Your work - View all boards - Create a board - Create a Scrum/Kanban board with sample data.

Hope it helps :)
