• 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.
