How to export/import Jira project contents along with the attachments

Hi Team,

I would like to know is there away to export/import JIRA project along with attachments. We have a requirement to export specific projects with all data along with attachments.

Please help us find the possibilities of importing/exporting specific projects along with attachments.

You need to export the attachments separately. They are in a file/folder structure not the database.

You can't export a project, if you want a full export of it (comments, history etc).  You have to export a whole JIRA system and then import individual projects.

As Joe says, you then handle attachments with a simple copy of the directory tree from the source server, being put into the "import" folder on the target, with the exported xml.
