I am in the process of migrating our Jira Server to JIRA Cloud. I have backed up our data from the server, but are unable to import the data. The following sentence is from the official guide;
In the Import and Export section, click JIRA Import and follow the steps to upload your backup file. This process checks URLs in the specified XML backup, and will let you choose whether or not to update URLs to point to the new JIRA Cloud application.
But I doesn't have a button/option that is named JIRA Import. Anyone got any ideas why that is ?
It appears your instance is on the new platform, so the option has changed to Restore System. Our documentation will be updated in the near future regarding this.
Can you give that a try and let us know if you have any trouble?
I recently asked a question and then saw this question.
Can you point to where Restore System lies? I've been looking around in the JIRA > Settings > System Admin portal and I can't find it. Perhaps it's different while using the recently (Sept 2017) upgraded JIRA UI.
I'm using version 1.30
Is there perhaps a user permissions thing going on?
I'm in the group: jira-administrators
but I'm not a site-administrator.
It appears to be still there, but with the New Jira Look it might be harder to find. Do you have the New Look?
If so, from the Jira main page, click Settings in the left-hand column. Next, click System. You will find under IMPORT AND EXPORT, Restore System.
You can also access it directly from the URL:
Let me know if you have any trouble. Please note you DO need to be a Jira administrator in order to see this.
That feature is not available for Cloud.
