Importing various project from different instances into one

We are currently trying to move our separate server instances into one shared cloud instance and therefore we have multiple backups we need to import into jira.

How can we import all of the projects from various instances with different configurations into one common instance?

EDIT: The preferred process is not moving all projects at once, but gradually.

Hi Michal,

Please note that JIRA project import is not available on JIRA Cloud instances at this moment. Said that, I'm afraid that you'll need to elect one of your server instances (or maybe create a new one) to individually import your projects from other instances. You can find more details on project import at:


Hope this helps!
