Migrate Jenkins Integration for Jira app data to a different Jira instance

Marvelution is committed to provide an easy migration path the Jenkins Integration for Jira app.

This includes the following paths:

  • support migrating from server to a different server instance

  • support migrating from cloud to a different cloud instance

  • support migrating from server to cloud done

  • support migrating from cloud to server

With the release of version 4.6.0 of the Jenkins Integration for Jira app for Jira Server migration can now be done automatically as part of your Jira Cloud Migration Assistant migration plans.

Other means of migration are only supported by manually copying the data from one instance of Jira to the other.

However development is underway to ease these other migration processes.
