  • If moving tickets to a new project, what are constraints around using the same fields or adding new fields – will we have to modify every ticket or can we bulk update?

Hi,

this is heavily depending on your configuration. Apart from having the nessecary right to move issues, all mandatory fields will be asked for during the move. If there are different fields for different issue types, you will have to move them in groups. If there are any other fields in those issues you want to change you can either do this by editing the issues (after the move) or via bulk change (also after the move).

As you noted allready, bulk change should not be a problem, provided you do have sufficient righs to do so.

Please let me know if that answers your question.

Regards, David
