Set JVM timestamp to GMT while migrating projects from one server to another

Hi Team,

 We are migrating jira projects from one server (half of the projects from other company) to our instance. We have taken temporary instance and load their data. They are in GMT-05:00) Toronto,  we are on GMT-05:00) Chicago, Should we still setup the Set JVM timestamp to GMT to avoid time stamp differences ?

1. Exported their data on sbx environment (.zip file) : /data/atlassian/jira-data/export/(file:
2. Set JVM timestamp to GMT
3. Copy the attachments to here (/data/atlassian/jira-data/import/attachments/) before project import manually
4. Copy the avatars ( the path <jira-home>/data/avatars)
4. Imported the data into dev instance : /data/atlassian/jira-data/import/(file:

Hi @Lakshmi S 

I have imported data from other regions and have never had any issues with timestamps.

Whenever I have had to perform a major change like this, I have pre-tested the process on a staging copy of production first. In my experience every Jira migration has it's own unexpected events so a dry run is essential.
