Migrate to Cloud

Please note that you need to migrate JIRA by using Jira Site Import.
It will not work with the Jira Cloud Migration Assistant, because it does not allow to migrate issue properties.

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.

Checklists & Project templates

All checklists and project templates data are attached to Jira issues and Jira projects. This means that if you migrate your Jira issues and projects from Jira Server to Jira Cloud, the checklist data will be migrated together with them. There are no further steps required to have those available on your Cloud instance. The migration guide for Jira is available here: https://support.atlassian.com/migration/docs/use-jira-site-import-to-migrate-from-server-to-cloud/

Global templates

Global templates are not automatically migrated and you are expected to migrate them by using our script to the new hosting. The process won’t take longer than 5 minutes. All templates are migrated with automation (configured with issue types or JQL).

Before you run the script make sure that you migrated Jira issues and projects from server to cloud
