Export single or all projects from Jira Cloud?

Hey everyone,


I'm new at my company and still getting used to Jira but I was wondering if someone might have an answer for this. Is there a way to export individual projects or all projects from Jira Cloud? More like a general export, not a backup file used for restoration. We're starting to clear out some old projects and that kind of functionality would be really helpful.

Hi @Jordan Meeks,

Option one. It's the easy way to export your data but if you have many issues when export to waste to much time and size file verry large so i recommen you use option two (file just only data)

  1. Go to the Jira Admin
  2. On the left side, click on Issues and filters
  3. On the top left of your screen, click on "Search issues"
  4. Chose your project, type,status 
  5. On the top right of your screen, click on the "Export" drop down.
  6. You can export via XML,CSV,RSS,WORK,...

Optione two (file zip backup have config system,data,info jira,project..)

  Jira Admin ->Jira settings->System->Backup Manager. In there you have two options: Create    backup for cloud  and Create backup for server

I hope you find this helpful!


Option two works the issue is that you have to overwrite all the projects in your target instance.

Is there a way I can just migrate one project from a cloud instance to another cloud Jira Software instance without overwriting all the data in the target system?

Thank you.

Would like to export just one project not the whole instance.

+1 - even for testing purposes would be good
