I want to keep the same set of users and, if possible, to have it on the same domain.
But when I try to evaluate JIRA it creates a new instance on a new domain.
Currently it's not possible to do this easily, although we are looking at streamlining it (follow AOD-5894 for updates).
The instructions to do it involve backing up your data, signing up for a new OnDemand instance and importing your data again. The details can be found here:
