First of all, we must say that due to the limitations there is no good and simple ready mechanism to import a project into the cloud version. However, it is possible to do it by following an instruction we’ve written down below.
Before you begin.
This import procedure overwrites all existing data and configuration in JIRA Cloud as well as cross-application settings, for example, issues and their attachments, look and feel configuration, and users and group memberships. Please be aware that if you choose to import data with this procedure after you have used JIRA Cloud for a while, you will lose all the data input in the interim. So we suggest using intermediate standalone JIRA in order to save all data in existing Cloud JIRA.
Migrate JIRA project from Standalone to Cloud:
Attachments, avatars and logos formats: .zip, .tar, .gz/.tgz, .tar, .bz2
Problems that can occur during the import process:
Hope this instruction will help you to quickly and efficiently migrate JIRA project to cloud. Don’t hesitate to contact us otherwise.
