Exporter is a simple tool that only stores information about scheduled exports. To simplify the migration process, we have decided not to build an automatic migration process. Instead, we will start from scratch in a clean instance. This will allow us to ensure that the migration is complete and accurate.
To ensure that you do not lose data, please follow these steps:
Migrate your Jira data using JCMA (Jira Cloud Migration Assistant) or via backup.
Once your migration is complete, install Exporter from the Atlassian Marketplace.
Manually recreate the scheduled exports that you created in Server or Data Center. Note that we have recently added a new feature that allows users to include other recipients.
Start using Exporter again!
Feature parity comparison
While preserving the whole experience on both installations Exporter Data Center/Server and Cloud only differ in 2 things. As you can see in the table below, Exporter Cloud will not be able to export your issues in PDF format or export your issues' attachments. That's it. The rest is the same experience.
