Migrating, exporting filters - how to?

Hi All,

we migrated one Jira instance to another.

Many users requested whether the filters used in the old Jira can be migrated to he new instance.

How van we do that? Is it possible?

What about a partial migration to an existing instance with projects, where a full restore is not possible? We are able to import the projects, issues, user, etc. but the filters remain on the old instance. Isn't there a way to export/import particular filters/dashboards? Thanks!

Dashboards - no.

Filters - I can think about using REST service to export from one and to create also using REST to the other. But all filters will come under one username.

just imagine...

filters could contain queries on more than only one project....

how should the import procedure validate that all dependencies are met to be able importing filters or dashboards (using filters etc...)

i.e. if only one project or issue-type doesn't exist that is used in your jql the filter is useless anyway.

just as Jobin mentioned...you will restore all content using the "Full Export & Restore" Step...

When JIRA was migrated, filters should have been migrated too. Migration is always "full migration". What procedure did you use for migration?

I have a similar question, but it's not related to a migration. We have a QA environment and a Production environment. We of course do all our work in Production, so that's where all our filters and dashboards have been created.

Our QA environment is a seperate environment, and it was created long ago. I want to export what I have in Production so I can import it into our QA environment.

I'm not a JIRA Admin, I'm a user. I asked our admins, but they said it's not possible. This means I have to manually recreate all the things that have been done in our Production environment.
