We have two jira environments. One is in Jira 4.1 and the other is in Jira 5.2
Now, the requirement is: we need to migrate few projects from Jira4 to the jira5 instance.
The jira 5 environment is already setup and we have projects in production. So the migration should not delete/disturb any existing projects in the jira5 instance.
Upgrading the existing jira 4 instance to jira 5 version is not what we want as many projects currently in Jira 4 wants to remain in Jira 4 itself.
Please help me with the recommended approach for our scenario.
Thanks and regards,
Jira project import only works on export files that were created from the same version. So you need to take a copy of the 4.1 data, and import it into a 5.2 system, then export from there, and give that export file to your live Jira 5.2 to read for individual projects.
Of course, there are other options - CSV will get you a simple issue list, but no history, etc. Jelly scripting might do the trick and so-on, but these are user intensive and won't get you an exact copy.
As a Belgian, beer-lover and home brewer, beer is one of my great passions. I love the fact that with just a few ingredients (usually just water, hop and malt) you can create so many different tastes...
