Configuration Manager for JIRA vs Project Configurator for JIRA Edited


Which addon is more efficient to use for migrating projects from one instance to other?

Which add on can or will migrate comments, attachments, and entire activity section from instance to instance?

By using these add on's do we need to manually create all custom fields, screen, issuetypes in other instance before migrating?

Any known limitations?

Which way is good, either using plug in for migration or match version of both instances and back up projects needed to migrate and restore it in other instance?

Both of them are good, and I can't say which one is "more efficient" because it depends on what you're doing and why.

Both of them enable migration of everything.  The whole point they exist is to take across the screens, fields, issue types and so-on.

Limitations are that they do not handle some third party custom fields.

You won't need to restore anythign, the add-ons handle almost everything (Botron makes the system ready to do a "project import", PC can take the issues itself)
