Steps for migration.

Approach -1 

  1. Take a full xml dump from your source JIRA 
  2. Setup the JIRA in AWS  with DB(On AWS RDS or your new any other DB)
  3. Import xml dump into AWS jira.

Approach -2

 1. you can setup JIRA on AWS and point that instance to existing DB

Once you setup the new JIRA instance into AWS, then new server id  will generate and you need new license.





Thanks Hemant

Hi @Kola Vikram and Community!

We've just built the beta of a solution to help ease migrations from Server/Data-Center-on-prem to Data-Center-on-AWS-Quickstarts.

Would you be interested to join our beta program and try out this solution? If you're interested, or would like to find out more, please email me at 

Yes.  Where are you at in the beta process?

Hey Emily, we are also considering to move our on-prem Jira Software, Service Desk and Confluence to AWS. I will send an email to you, if you could please respond.
