|Suppose you have multiple Jira Server instances that you want to move to Jira Data Center but you need to retain all your project data including configuration, history, and user mappings. You want to identify one of your Jira Sever instances to convert to Data Center and then merge your servers with your new instance as seamlessly and as easily as possible.|
It is assumed that you have installed Jira Data Center and configured your instance according to Atlasssian's DC installation guide. It is also expected that you are familiar with the concepts of migrating and merging Jira instances as described in the following Atlassian guides: Migrating Jira Instances and Merging Jira Instances.
Migrating from Jira Server to Data Center involves upgrading an existing instance to the new Data Center setup and then merging your remaining instances into the Data Center instance. While we’ve tried to make Project Configurator as easy to use as possible, there are a number of things you should do to ensure your data is safely and successfully imported.
After you have moved your first instance, verify that conflicts don’t exist between your source and target 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.
