Here’s How to Export Your Data from Jira Software Successfully

Some time ago we informed you about the possibility of Jira Software Import. However, what should you do in case you want to export your data from Jira Software to another platform?

Well, you’d simply need to check this article, because from now on, you can migrate data from Jira Software in an automated way.

A few words about Jira Software

Jira Software is a project management platform that was designed to work with your projects in an efficient manner. It will assist you in planning, tracking, and releasing your software projects. Furthermore, Jira Software allows you to customize your workflow according to your team’s individual wishes and integrate it with a number of applications.

So, Jira Software might be a solution for you if you are looking for a project management tool with broad functionality. However, you’d be able to draw a conclusion whether Jira is something for you only by trying another project management platform and comparing your experiences.

The list of data you can export from Jira Software

Here is the list of data that you can migrate from Jira Software to other Supported Platforms in an automated way:

  • Users
  • Sections (Note that Sections will be seen as Statuses by Migration Wizard)
  • Tasks along with tags, attachments, and comments
  • Sub-tasks together with tags, attachments, and comments
  • “Created At”, “Updated At”, “Completed At”, and “Due” Dates
  • Authors, Attachments, and “Created At” Dates for Comments

Note: The same fields migrate for both tasks and subtasks. The fields "statutes" don't migrate for sub-tasks.

In case there is something else you want to export from Jira, contact our support team and inform them about it. This way, our technical department will be able to customize your data migration according to your requests.
