Hi Fahrur,

You can do a full site export in Cloud and then re-import that into the production Cloud instance; the instructions are included in the link above.

Please note this will overwrite any data in the production instance.

Let us know if you have any trouble or questions.

Kind Regards,

Sorry, but it's not i want. I just want the configuration like workflow, issue type, etc. I don't need the data. 

The idea how to clone a project without data to other jira instance.


Apologies, as the email notifications for Community were not working as expected.

In order to migrate configuration you will need to do the full site migration as I mentioned above. Have a look at How to migrate projects from one JIRA Cloud application to another:

At the present moment there is no project import available for JIRA Cloud applications. As a workaround customers can follow the guide in this KB.

We do have the following feature requests:

I recommend that you vote on both of the features as it helps show the interest for it. You can also watch the case and you will be updated if anything changes.

Thank you for your understanding!

Kind Regards,

Thanks Shannon. And i want ask, for JIRA Server can you give me best advise to implement this export/import project ? 

Are JIRA Server had implement this feature natively (no 3rd party plugin) ? 

For just the project config, no, you will need add-ons.

Hi Fahrur,

For Jira Server it is possible to import a single project:

Restoring a project from backup

However, as Nic mentioned, if you just want the config, then it would require an add-on. Another method would be to remove the unwanted issues after import and keep the configuration as is.

Kind Regards,

Can some atlasian team answer this question ? Even answer that this feature not exist yet ?
