How to refresh jira from one instance to other

I have two instances of JIRA - DEV and PROD. I would like to refresh DEV with PROD data. What is the best way to do this?

We have some testing to be performed for a feature we implemented. We would like to have a copy of production data to ensure that testing covers all scenarios.

Thanks, Manju

Either recreate the dev database from a dump of live, start Jira, re-license it with a dev license and then reindex it, or take an xml export of live and import the whole thing in live.

Make sure that you disable trackbacks and incoming and outgoing email on the command line in Dev



Hello Nic,

What are the steps for re-licensing after starting JIRA? Won't there be an license conflict if there are two applications started with same license? Will it not be easier to update the database entry for JIRA DEV and then start the application?



It will stop and ask you for a new licence key if it wants a new one

You won't get a licence conflict if two are running on the same licence, as far as I know

I've never updated the licence in the database - it's always asked!
