I want to change my existing project type which is in "Business" to "Software" without losing my current workflow and data. Is this possible? If yes, please provide me the steps
When you create a Software project, you'll get specific features as a workflow, board and Agile-specific issue types tailored to the chosen template.
Keeping your current workflow depends a bit on the Business template you've chosen. Only the default business workflow for Project Management is similar to the default software simplified workflow for Scrum software development.
This is possible. Below are the steps.
1) Navigate to project you want to change to a Software type. Click on "Project Settings".
2) Make sure you are on the "Details" tab of the project settings page.
3) Change "Project type" from Business to Software. This requires Admin level permissions within the cloud environment.
This option isn't available to me in the latest Jira Cloud (Jira 0d422e7e). Project Type is greyed-out option with an info popover that reads:
"To change project type, create a new project and bulk move your issues into it.
Read our step-by-step instructions"
The instructions tell you to create a new project and migrate any issues. 🤦♂️
what are the impacts of changing from biz to software.
i am thinking of this, cos recently i added two new workflows to my issue types and the JIRA core board failed saying multiple workflows cant show up in this board
hence was thinking of changing from Biz to software
