Import from Jira on demand to Jira server

Hi all, 


I try to do a partial import from a On Demand instance to a standalone server instance.


It seems that even with using the latest JIRA server available (6.4.3), I can not import the project:


"This data appears to be from an older version of JIRA. Please upgrade the data and try again. The current version of JIRA is at build number '64018', but the supplied backup file was for build number '65000'."


Should I use the version "6.5-OD-03-002" as a server instance, even if it is flagged as being a "on demand" version?

Thanks in advance

Hey there,

You can safely use version 6.5-OD-03-002 in this case. Server version 6.4.3 is pretty much the same as Atlassian Cloud, only their build numbers that are different and in this case, Cloud build number is bigger than Server, that's why you are receiving this message.



Thank you for your answer :) Does the same apply to Confluence too?

Welcome :) Yes, the same thing is applicable to Confluence. Cheers,

Hi, where may I find the JIRA Agile Plugin in the actual cloud version? I get the following when trying to import my project in JIRA: "The backup project 'xxx' requires custom field named 'Epic Color' with full key 'com.pyxis.greenhopper.jira:gh-epic-color'. In the current instance of JIRA the plugin is at version '6.7.0', but in the backup it is at version '6.7.0-D20150421T081441'." ... and that plugin seems not to be available in the atlassian maven repository... May I just alter something in the backup to make JIRA happy? Thanks

Ok I found what to change to make jira happy (just remove any reference to -D20150421T081441 in the entity.xml file)

PS: when I use the version 6.5-OD-03-002, it seems to work, but does it really?

Where did you download version 6.5-OD-03-002?

Would love to know where you got that version as well.
