The best way to merge two JIRA projects?

Any suggenstion on how to merge two JIRA projects? Renaming one and "move" all issues from the other? Or is there any cooler way?

Both projects have the same Workflow.

Not really - moving issues from the first project to the other is pretty much the best option. With bulk-edit of course (someone I know tried to do it one issue at a time! Fine for a handful, but he had hundreds to do...)

A cooler way -- write a nice script in ruby/python which does REST calls to make sure both projects are in sync and issues are imported from one project to another and you can decide in the script to remove redundant fields of source project.

That's only cooler if you really need to do complex data manipulation during the merge. Bulk edit will ask the essential questions and deal with all synchonisations etc. Scripting is more work, and a lot slower.

Thanks guys. I'll just go the uncooler way this time :-)
