|Suppose you have a group of projects in a Jira instance called SOURCE. You want to move this group of projects to a different instance, called TARGET, where none of those projects exist. The original projects in instance SOURCE are going be abandoned because SOURCE is going to be shut down after the merge.|
Ensure Project Configurator is installed on both your source and target instances. You can install Project Configurator either through the UPM or by downloading the app from the Atlassian Marketplace. Apply your license to the target instance only – Project Configurator will allow you to export without a license on the source instance. You must have Jira Administration permissions to complete this process.
While we’ve tried to make Project Configurator as easy to use as possible, there are a few things you should do to ensure a successful import.
Verify that conflicts don’t exist between both of the instances and if they do, decide how each of them should be handled.
Simulate the import on a staging environment to check the system load and to ensure that your target Jira instance performs the way that you expect it to.
