Importing a Project onto a new JIRA instance doesn't retain both the filters and the Rapid Boards asscociated with the Project

I'm migrating a project from one JIRA instance to another instance by using project import feature. After importing the project to the new instance, I find the filters and the rapid boards associated with the Project are not moved to JIRA new instance. Is there a way for me to resolve this issue in whatever ways?

I might be wrong but AFAIK the project export includes only project relevant information. As Greenhopper is basically just a plugin information concerning your boards doesn't get exported, neither do filters.

I think you have to manually rebuild filters an greenhopper settings in your target instance.

Christian is correct here.

A project is a collection of issues. How you report on it (filters, rapid boards, dashboards) is not part of the project. They're actually more to do with the users than the project.

There's no way of transferring them over, you'll need to recreate them by hand.

This is really part of the problem of migrating JIRA configuration and JIRA plugin configurations from one JIRA instance to another. Very painful at the moment.
