JIRA to JIRA Issue Copy

Hi, I am looking into JIRA to JIRA Issue Copy (https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.atlassian.cpji.cpji-jira-plugin) and have it working between two JIRA server instances (6.3 & 6.4). Will it work between JIRA server and JIRA cloud 7 as well?

You can also consider the option of doing a CSV export/import. It is a native tool within JIRA and does not require the versions to be the same.

Another option for you is the project import tool on JIRA, again very useful and i have used it plenty of times, but this option requires you to have source and dest JIRA instances to be on same JIRA version and identical configurations.

Hi Jakob, 

The JIRA to JIRA Issue Copy add-on is only available for JIRA Server products, so it would not allow you to copy issues between a JIRA Server and JIRA Cloud instance nor would it allow you to copy issues between two JIRA Cloud instances. There's no equivalent add-on for JIRA Cloud. 

For copying issues from JIRA Server into JIRA Cloud, you could create a CSV backup from your server instance and then Import the issues into cloud using the CSV importer.

Another alternative would be to use the JIRA REST API to write a script to copy the issues. 

I hope this helps!
