Custom fields renamed to custom field(migrated)

David Vincent October 26, 2022

Hi community,

When we migrate our Jira Server instance to our new Cloud instance, we have fields that are renamed with (migrated), this is also the case for default field configuration where we have two DFCs...

How to avoid this behaviour?
FYI : The fields concerned are "Start date", "Severity" and "Team".

Hi David. This happened to us when using JCMA to do our test migration from server to cloud sandbox.  The Migrated on date also gets added to the description of all the custom and system fields. Not sure if you have noticed this with your migration.

We will be doing a cleanup ourselves to remove the word migrated from the names. Atlassian is helping us remove the migrated on details from the description of the fields but cannot get it right on the Create screen where the details are still appearing.

Perhaps log a ticket with Atlassian to help with the cleanup of this.

What process did you use to migrate your data? Did you use Jira Cloud Migration Manager? If so, what version of it?

Hi @Trudy Claspill , yes we use JCMA and we are in 1.7.1

I heard from a co-worker that handled a JCMA migration recently that they saw the same. They worked with Atlassian support (through their MOVE ticket) to get "some" of it cleaned up.

@Trudy Claspill - I tried migrating my project from DC to Cloud, got the same error of having migrated suffix after the field. https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/MIG-1163 saw this ticket raised. Is there a better approach for this in the migration?

We are planing to migrate our ticketing system project from Data Center to Jira Service Management and our JSM has all the configs and custom fields in place. So one quick doubt will there be a duplication again when we try to migrate.

Appreciate any better response!

Hello @Mohammed Siyad 

Do you have a MOVE/support ticket opened with Atlassian support? If you don't, you should open one so that you can get help directly from them as needed.

The only options that I am aware of for addressing this are:

1. Modify the field name in the on-premise instance to something that doesn't already exist in Cloud prior to the migration and continue use with an environment that has two fields for the same data, or 

2. After the migration, move all the data in the "(migrated)" field to the pre-existing field, add the pre-existing field to the screens (if needed), update any filters that reference the migrated field, and then delete the migrated field.

That sounds like a plan. Can you possibly share the link to the MOVE platform.

Is there a possibility  where we migrate only the data and the configs stays there
