We have acquired a company who also uses Jira Cloud Premium. Over time, we plan to migrate some of the projects in their instance to our larger instance. In the short term is it possible to link issues from their instance into our instance?
As an update to this question...
It should now be possible to application link multiple instances together, and then link to Issues cross-instance.
To do this you'll need to be a Jira Admin on both instances - and then...
^ Once this is complete, when using linked issues, it should give you the option to choose which instance the Issue is in - local, or otherwise.
This worked perfectly!

Your Jira administrator will first need to configure fully reciprocal application links between your two Jira sites. To create a link to another Jira site:
Hi @YARON LEVY
It depends what you're classifying as a risk - is there a question or concern you're thinking about?
In terms of other options, there are Apps you could consider if you're looking to sync two instances - for example:
Or, search for other options on the Marketplace :)
Hi @YARON LEVY
This is Majid @ Exalate.
In order to fully synchronize 2 Jira instances bidirectionally, you can utilize Exalate. The app provides you fully customizable synchronization which can be customized to a very granular level.
Please feel free to book a customized demo if you would like to see the product in action.
@YARON LEVY hi. If you're looking for a way to easily connect the two Jira instances and keep them synced in real-time, check out ZIgiOps. It can easily connect the two bi-directionally and help you transfer (and sync) various data/fields. It can be customized to fit multiple use cases. Feel free to check it out and if you want to see it in action (and how it can help you resolve), you can book a demo.
