Move Jira DB (Oracle DB) from server to another server

Dears,

Could we only copy the DB from a server to another server and change teh conenction from JIRA App, or this process needs third party tools ?

Yes you can move Oracle and change the connection settings to another server. Make sure the driver and JIRA supports the new Oracle installation.

The easiest way to do the "copy" is to export your JIRA data to xml, swap the database over to a clean empty new one, as Niclas says, and then import the xml.  The xml does report the database it was exported from, but is otherwise completely agnostic - it's designed to be used to change between databases.  It even works for unsupported databases (although I would not recommend running unsupported)
