How can I backup or export the data of a single project with the purpose to move the project data (and only this data) to another Jira database?
I've found how to export the entire system.
Thank you in advance.
You've almost answered your own question. You take the entire export, give it to the target Jira and then use "project import" - it will read the whole import file and pull out the project you select.
Where is this 'project import' option? I've looked in Administration→Projects and Administration→System but don't see it anywhere. Administration→System→Restore says 'Please note that this process will delete all existing JIRA data in your site', which is definitely not what I want.
you find this function in
This is the direct URL:
http://<your jira URL>/secure/admin/ProjectImportSelectBackup!default.jspa
Maybe you can find some info here.
However, you have to be sure that the info to be restored comes from the same JIRA version otherwise you will have to upgrade old jira.
There's a lot of reports of broken pages today, I think Atlassian are re-organising docs and breaking stuff, people are raising reports about it, so hopefully they'll be fixed soon. Try again later.
There is no export project, you have to take a full backup as xml. Import is in the import menu in the admin section.
Looks promising, but I wasn't able to install this to my cloud instance. 'Project Configurator for JIRA' doesn't appear when I search for it under 'Add-ons', and when I go to Manage Add-ons→Upload add-on, it expects a URL, not the trial I downloaded.
Do you know if this free trial will actually let me do what I want, migrate a single project, including all its issues, from one JIRA instance to another?
