Is there a way to deploy snapshot from JIRA Software to JIRA core instance?

I've tried to deploy snapshot from JIRA Software instance to linked JIRA Core instance, but Configuration Manager asked Agile plugin and stopped deployment. Is it possible to do such deploy somehow?

Hi Eugeny,

There are two options to do such deploy:

The first and most obvious one is to (temporarily) install JIRA Software on the target system.

Assuming you are deploying a Project snapshot, the second option is to make a new snapshot on the source system. First you have to make sure that the configuration you want to deploy does not contain references to JIRA Software specific elements (e.g.  custom fields like Epic Name, Sprint, etc.). Look for and remove such references in JIRA Screens and Field Configurations. Then follow the Create snapshot wizard steps and omit all Boards.

If the new snapshot does not contain JIRA Software-specific configuration, you will be able to deploy it to the target JIRA Core instance. You can examine the snapshot in a text editor to be sure that it does not require JIRA Software. Look for a plugins tag in the very end of the file, which will point you the exact configuration elements that require JIRA Software. It will be similar to: '<plugins name="JIRA Agile" ... requiredBy="//@customFields.0>'. Note that the snapshot file is to be used only for reference, as editing it could cause unexpected errors!

Is any of these options viable for you?
