Hi @Karim Belhadj,

What do you mean by spliting jira ? You want to separate certain projects in one instance and other projects in one instance . 

What is your thought

You would need to create a second instance of Jira. Create a backup from your current instance. Take a backup from the first instance and install it to the second instance. Then delete not required projects from the first and second instances.

@Alexey Matveev _cPrime_  @Sreenivasaraju P  , so that's good , but i need what requirement should do in this procedure .


Should the both instance have the same data ?

Sould the both instance use the same home directory ?

And what does mean clustering  or load balancing by the way ?



Thank you very much 

Hi Karim, 

Yes as mentioned by Alexey, you would need to restore the backup to second instance and then delete the unwanted projects.

Please note you must have different home directory for second Jira instance.


Hope this helps !
