JIRA software v7.6 backup a single project

I have got impression that jira software out of box cannot handle single project backup , the complete backup ?  is that true ?

if we want a project move from one instance (for example jira:8100) to another instance jira:8800, what would be the effective way to this very project shown in 8800 with all content from 8100 ?

Hi Quan,

That is correct.  JIRA does not natively backup single projects.  In order to backup projects you'd need to create an XML backup and follow the steps in Restoring a project from backup.

I would also take a look at the Community post Export or back-up a single project for some third party add-ons that may help you accomplish this.  The Configuration Manager for JIRA Add-on was mentioned and here is the snippet from that portion of the conversation:

[...] you can help with plugin eg. "Configuration manager for JIRA" since version 5.x. I assume you need to import one particular project in another JIRA (for example, in a JIRA test).

The steps are as follows

  1. You install the "Configuration manager for JIRA" plug-ins on both JIRAs (to simplify - CMJ)
  2. In JIRA A, you will use the CMJ plugin to snapshot the project setup - as instructed at Snapshot Management(A snapshot of the project configuration is created + all issue data)
  3. in JIRA A you download this snapshots file to a local PC
  4. In JIRA B using the CMJ plug-in, Deploy snapshot (import file) - as instructed at Snapshot Deployement
  5. Done

Take a look at the Community post Export or back-up a single project for more information and recommendations.

Cheers,

Branden

Thank you for confirming and providing further reference. 

No worries.  I'm happy I was able to help!
