Hi Sylvain,

The described procedure procedure here: which Aleks pointed out will work BUT, the project import feature which should be used in step B have a lot of limitations, the one that I find critical is that it messes up the Issue history.

The only workaround is to hire Atlassian Expert which can make it work with some DB level scripts.
