Project Configurator for Jira Server and DC

Installation and Licensing

Installation

Project Configurator is a standard app 2 type, paid-via-Atlassian app, so the installation and licensing process is the same as that used by most apps in the Atlassian Marketplace. If this is the first time you have installed an app, follow the instructions on Atlassian’s Installing Marketplace Apps page. Licenses can be installed and managed using the Universal Plugin Manager (UPM) inside your Jira instance.

You can also install Project Configurator for Jira directly from the Atlassian Marketplace. Here, you can also learn more about pricing options and compatibiliy.

Manage Your License

When Project Configurator for Jira is installed, you can manage the license directly in your Jira Admin section under Add-ons. You can easily enter a new license key by pasting it into the License Key window and clicking Update.

No license is required for exporting.

Evaluation or trial licenses are fully functional, with the exception that they will not permit running a real import into a Jira production instance. They can be used to run a simulated import in any instance of Jira, or any import operation, simulated or real, on a development or test instance of Jira.

Prerequisites

  • To transfer projects or their configurations, you must have Jira System Administrator permissions in all instances where you are going to use Project Configurator.

  • Project Configurator must be installed on both the source and target instances; however, a paid license is only required for the target instance. You can use a trial or evaluation license to complete your export/import processes for a Jira test instance, but you must have a paid license to complete an import on a Jira production instance.

  • If the configuration refers to custom field types, searchers, workflow conditions, post-functions, or any other extension defined in an app, the same version of the app must be installed and enabled in the target instance.

  • When preparing for any migration process, we recommend you review the Project Configurator Checklist.
