I have an old project "Test" in one JIRA instance and another new project "Test" in the other JIRA instance.
The old project has a connection to a SVN repository. The SVN link is created if you comment in SVN f.e. with "[Test-123] xyz..."
What will happen if I connect the new project with the same SVN repository and after some issues I will have the issue number 123 and the SVN link will start with "[Test-123] xyz.." like in the old project. So after a while the issue number in the new project with the same name will overtake the issue number in the old project and then we will have a problem with the SVN links because you have "[Test-123]" twice.
So concretly what will happen there?
And what should I do to circumvent eventual problems?
what will happen is, that one SVN commit is linked to two Jira issues in two different Jira instances. But I think, you know this already...
I would create a new project with a new project key (not Test) and move all the issues from your new Test-project to this one.
So they get a new key and you have no problem with SVN.
