Project Configurator is an app for Jira that automates the process of manually copying projects and configurations from one Jira instance to another. It allows you to specify whether to export and import only specific project configurations or complete projects (configuration and data).
Project Configurator is able to handle not only the project specific configurations but also global objects such as custom fields, schemes, workflows etc that are referenced in the project configuration. Other global objects that are not, strictly speaking, required for a project configuration such as filters, dashboards and agile boards can also be migrated. See the full list of supported object types for more information.
To get started with Project Configurator, we advise following the guide below along with watching the introduction videos to help you understand how Project Configurator works.
Project Configurator can help you in several different ways, but to begin let's looks our most common use cases:
Use Case 1 - Responsible Change Management: You have configured new projects or made changes to the configurations of existing projects in a development instance and want to transfer those changes to the production environment while the issue data in production must remain as it is.
Use Case 3 - Migrating from Jira Server to Data Center with Project Configurator: You want to move your Jira Server instances to Jira Data Center while retaining all of your project data including configuration, history, and user mappings.
