Migrate to Cloud

Multiple Checklists for Jira are available for all hosting options - Jira Cloud, Jira Server, and Jira Data Center. The feature set and the user interface on all of those options are the same, which means that you can freely migrate to another hosting without any loss of features or the need to onboard users with the app again.

The migration guide for Jira is available here: https://support.atlassian.com/migration/docs/jira-cloud-migration-assistant/.

The following data will be automatically migrated from Jira Server/Data Center to Cloud:

  • Checklists

  • Checklists history

  • Project templates

  • Global templates

  • Automations

  • Statuses

  • Settings

  • Permissions


Non-native Jira Workflow Functions are currently not supported by the Jira Cloud Migration Assistant. This means, they must be manually re-created on the cloud site if you’d like to continue using them.

This affects: post-functions, validators, conditions. Please note that if there was any Checklists-related validator added to a transition, such a transition of issue will not work on Cloud after migration until it is manually deleted and re-added.
