Jira Migration from 4.4 to 5.2.7 , custom workflows

I need to migrate from JIRA 4.4 to 5.2.7 ( Latest ) and the mehodology i was thinking was:

1. Install the latest JIRA

2. Export 4.4 as XML

3. Import 4.4 Data to 5.2.7


1. When backing up, do Custom Workflows get backup

2. When we import data to 5.2.7 do custom workflows also get imported ?

3. Are there any GOTH'as or issues that i need to be aware of ? for this upgrade path?

I am not sure what you mean by custom workflow, but I assume that it is one made within the JIRA ui. If so, then your plan should work without issue.

4.4 to 5.2.7 should be a fairly straightforward upgrade. I would recommend you check plugin compatability first. Also, do this in a test environment prior to production to ensure that you can have a smooth procedure when you go live with this.
