JIRA-Migrating-from-Server-to-Cloud Licence Migration

Hi Team 

I am moving from our current situation of JIRA server to JIRA Cloud. Is there an easy way to migrate the data over or is this all a manual effort or Jira Cloud Migration Assistant ? 

Suppose if we have 25 users in JIRA server do I can use the same license in JIRA Cloud ? because we have valid license till 2020

Hi @Nuwan Vithanage , there are a lot of existing threads on this so I encourage you to explore them as they will have details on experiences. If you look to the right here under "Related Community content" you will see quite a few but there are more and you can use the Search bar to find them.

Here is a document resource that might be worth consulting - jira-server-to-cloud-migration-resources 

Hi Jack ,

Thank you very much for the prompt reply and advice you have given to me my concern is If I have JIRA server license available with me if there any possibility to use the existing JIRA server license in JIRA Cloud ? 


Thank you,

The licenses are quite different. You can reach out to Atlassian to see if any credit could be applied. I have no idea if that is possible.

Hello @Nuwan Vithanage 


Would you be interested in participating in a beta program and answering some questions about how you use Jira? Elements is currently working on a Cloud version of our most popular server app Elements Connect (formerly nFeed) to meet the needs of companies migrating from server to Cloud, and we are recruiting beta users.
