Migrate one JIRA project to other JIRA instance

Hello, is there a way to export only one project from JIRA and import it to another instance?

Our JIRA has multiple projects and one of them has to be migrated to another JIRA server. We also want to migrate all project schemes and configuration.

You will need to do an XML backup and then use the project import functionality. Make sure you have setup your receiving project for th import with all the custom fields, workflow, etc. An additional tip: if the JIRA instance has a plugin like Zephyr then that data will not be imported as the JIRA project import does not read data created by the plugins.

Please confirm, when we do the project migration: are "fix Versions", "Affect Versions" & "Components" will be automatically imported to target system ..? or we have to do these manually..?
