Export from Jira on-demand and import into Jira v4.3.2

We would like to export one (of our twelve) projects from Jira on-demand, to give to a client to import into their local v4.3.2 Jira. The below link sort of covers this but doesn't mention how to prune the export down to just the one project.

How could this best be done?

Thanks,

Tony

There is no way you can export a single project. The xml export will take an export of everything (all your projects).

Now, on your target instance you have two options

1. To import it completely : which will wipe of all existing data on target jira instance and restore everything from the xml- backup.

2. To pick and select the project you want to import: You need to select that one project when you do a project import. Note however that the admin will need to recreate all configurations on the target instance before performing the project import.

Also make sure that both source and target jira instance MUST be on the same jira version (upto the build number)

Here's the link to project. This is exhaustive list of steps you would need to follow.

Thanks Rahul,

What I ended up doing (before reading your answer), was to take a complete XML export of our Jira OnDemand and import it into a local stand-alone Jira test instance. I then deleted all of the projects, users and workflows that I wasn't interested in before exporting again.
