Project Configurator for Jira Server and DC

Installation and Licensing


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.

  1. Log in to your Jira instance as an admin.

  2. Select Manage Apps from the Administration menu.

  3. Search for Project Configuration for Jira.

  4. Click Try it Free to begin a new trial or Buy it Now to purchase a license. You will be prompted to log in to MyAtlassian.

  5. Enter your information then click Generate License to receive and apply your license.

You can also install Project Configurator for Jira directly from the Atlassian Marketplace. Here, you can also learn more about pricing options and compatibility, read our reviews, and discover other popular Adaptavist apps.

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 Licenses

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.

Short-Term Licenses

Short-term licenses for Project Configurator for Jira Server and Data Center are available directly through Adaptavist with a minimum subscription of one month. To discuss how our short-term license options can meet your needs, please get in touch at


  • 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 you are migrating from Jira Server to Data Center, your target instance requires a Data Center version of Project Configurator.

  • 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 that you review the Project Configurator Checklist.
