I need to merge two JIRA Software cloud instances.

A sister company has a cloud instance of JIRA Software cloud that needs to be merged with a more established JIRA Software cloud instance. Is this possible? What is the best way to accomplish?

Hey Sharon!

I was able to find this KB article that may be of use to you. From a quick scan over it, it looks like they have you set up a local JIRA instance to import projects from both JIRA Cloud instances into the local instance, and then back up to one of the cloud instances.


It doesn't look like merging Cloud instances is fully supported, but based on this article it seems you're not the only person with this issue. Hope I could be of assistance!

Hi Nicolas,

Thanks for your time and the article. It is not supported, but I think this is a workable solution. I will let you know if there are any snags.
