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.
- Jira language and locale must be the same on both source and target instances.
- It is recommended that your Jira versions be the same on both source and target instances. This applies especially to complete project imports.
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.
