In this step, you will plan for complete migration from Connector for Salesforce & Jira Server to Cloud version


Things to Note

Maintenance window

  • Depending on the size of the data and the complexity of the existing configuration, it may take up to a few hours to complete these steps. We advise you to schedule a maintenance window in your organization to perform the migration.

  • Jira Cloud Migration Assistant (JCMA) will handle the migration window as follows:

    • On Server, JCMA will handle the export. There is no instance downtime.

      • Best practices: Plan your migration per project basis for test purposes then slowly increase the numbers of projects migrated depending on comfort level.

    • On Cloud, JCMA will complete the data migration as a background task

      • JCMA will initiate the migration from the Server side.

      • The migration will automatically refer to the latest version of existing data for any particular project.

  • Once the migration of data to Cloud is completed, you can initiate the next Cloud-related steps for Connector for Salesforce & Jira.

Next Steps

  • To estimate the time you will need to go through the migration steps; we recommend reviewing all of the steps before executing.
  • Your existing app data will not be overwritten. However we suggest erasing your test data before migrating your production data.
