Migrating to Jira Cloud

The JMWE app has an automated migration path and can be migrated from Jira Server/Data Center; migration requires JMWE for Jira Server/Data Center version 7.2.0 or later. Migration is currently supported using Jira Cloud Migration Assistant (JCMA) automation only.

Be aware that JMWE migration using JCMA is currently in Beta, so you may wish to test the JMWE migration in a trial or test Cloud instance.

Note: If you have already migrated to the Cloud and need information regarding how to fix errors, see the Post Migration page.
