How can I replicate issues from one Jira instance to another


My company does the development for another company which uses JIRA for issue tracking.  We would like to set up our own JIRA instance and replicate the issues in our client's instance to our JIRA instance on an on-going basis.  The reason is that we don't want our client to have visibility into the time we spend on individual tasks, who does the work, etc.  Is there a preferred way to do something like this?  Thanks, Jim

Importing a CSV to update existing issues will reset columns to their default values if they are not specified in the CSV.

That's a problem, since we'd only want to bring in certain columns...

Take a look at ConnectAll. It is a third party application that keeps ALM apps in sync. We have customers who connects 2 JIRA instances and keeps selected projects in sync.
