If you will not compare them programmatically...

A quick overview you will get with:

  • you should take a bunch of users and ask them to review their own tickets in both system and give you some feedback if something is missing or different in any way.
    In my experience this will give you a good first overview if there are some errors as most user know their tickets as the back of their hands.
  • beside this a quick overview can be created by define a filter over a bunch of issues from each project or configuration set (screens, fields, workflows, issue-types and so on) and export them with all fields to excel. This will give you some kind of first hint if some fields or values are missing.
  • Another good quick overview you will get if you have just a quick view on some Project-Administrations.
    If here is everything as it should be you are on a good way.

For a first overview this should do.


If this is not enough and you need something like "absolute certainty", you have to compare everything in detail via the JIRA Administration.

  • go through all the items in the section "Issues" and compare it with your cloud configuration.
  • go to the section "System" and have at least a closer look at
    • Security --> Roles
    • Security --> Global Permissions
    • Issue Features --> Time Tracking
    • Issue Features --> Issue Linking
    • User Interface --> Default User Preferences
    • User Interface --> System Dashboard

This will give you at least the certainty that you users will have the same permission as in your cloud system and the default behaviour should be the same.
