Hi, you can create a copy of the workflow scheme and all its workflows, however if statuses have been changed and during the migration you've mapped workflow statuses, there may be loss of data. In that case I suggest doing a full backup and restore if required. You'd probably need to "freeze" the system in case.

Thanks

Actually when i assign the new workflow scheme to an existing Project it says that please ask your system administrator to take a backup in xml file. How can i take that back up.

Hi, you can do an export by following: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/AOD/Exporting+issues. You will need to be an admin to do this.

Will this take back up of the entire project configured in JIRA?

I want to take a backup of only one project.

Harry Chan Sep 12, 2012

It's not quite possible, at least not from JIRA. You might have some luck with plugins, but no official way.

or is there any other way to do this so that data does not mess and i can recover the previous data if something goes wrong

Harry Chan Sep 12, 2012

NNG and was this a full or only 1 project backup?

Harry Chan Sep 12, 2012

As said as far as I know JIRA only do full backups properly/officially.
