Hello @Jim Polingo 

Welcome to the community.

You will find everything you need to know here :


Hope this helps

I do not see an import export button anywhere in the system.  I don't see a settings > system tab either.  Not sure what I am missing here.  I look at my account, my profile, my projects, nothing.

what am i missing?

Jira settings > system > backup manager

check the box for attachments, etc and click creat backup for cloud.

you need to be a system admin. if you do not see "Jira settings" in the sidebar after clicking the Jira icon in upper left then you do not have the necessary permissions.

that person is long gone.  how do we cahnge the admin settings if we don't have login info

yikes! you don't have any admin? I would reach out to Atlassian Support and have them assist. you can't create a backup w/o that role.

I have tried but as you know, there is no one to directly contact.  you have to wait for a response and no phone support.

understood. hopefully you will hear back soon!
