Is it possible to import in Jira 4.4.5. an export made from 4.2.4 ?

Is it possible to import in Jira 4.4.5. an export made from 4.2.4 ? From 4.4.5 to 6.2.7 I succeded, but as I want to migrate from 4.2.4 to 6.2.7(war distribution), I have to pass thru 4.4.5, so for not use import export DB, I'd prefer to use export import

Yes, it's possible to import from JIRA 4.2.x to JIRA 4.4.5 in order to upgrade later to JIRA 6.2.  wink

For more details, take a look at JIRA's 4.4.x upgrade documentation: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA044/Upgrading+JIRA

Hi thanks for fast response. I made backup from 4.2.4 .. and after tried tu import in a 4.4.5 version of jira. But it said that can't find entities.xml and so the restore failed MCTibi

When you say that you've made the backup, can you detail the steps taken and also what was the output file?

I enter in 4.2.4, Administration -> Backup Jira data, I put backup as zip.. I chose a name like backup42Test.zip and launch the backup.. than in 4.4.5 with new instalation, instead of customise I choose to import data from backup, and in that moment it says that entities.xml can not be found in my zip file

What are the files inside the Zip?

inside the zip made by export from 4.2.4 is only one file, an xml, with the same name of the zip
