How to Manage Multiple Instances in JIRA

Aleks Yenin

Unfortunately, it is impossible to do within Atlassian’s JIRA Agile plugin as it’s only designed for one instance. But don’t worry, there is a couple of workarounds you can use:)

    1. Merging two (or more, in one needs) JIRAs into one with simultaneous creation of separate stack permissions. For this you must synchronize plugins and JIRA version, implement configurations backup (with the help of a special plugin or manually), migrate each project from one JIRA system to the other, and thus be able to use one JIRA for all projects after that.


If this approach doesn’t suit you, if you have to use several JIRA systems and thus cannot merge them, there’s another method you can try:

     2. Tickets synchronizing. In order to do it, you can create a listener that will automatically control all changes between a ticket in one system and a ticket in the other system, install it on both JIRAs, and then create a custom field that will be responsible for the connection between the two systems.


 We hope that taking these steps will simplify JIRA project management process in your company.
