Migrating from Server / Data Center
At Elements, we're fully committed to making your path from Server / Data Center to Cloud as seamless as possible.
We're working hard to ensure that in the coming months the value you can get from the Cloud version of Elements Copy & Sync matches and even exceeds the one you currently get with our Server / Data Center app. While this is our goal, we know that today there's a gap in functionality between our Server / Data Center product and our Cloud app.
Most of the key functionalities of the Server / Data Center app will be implemented, however, due to functional differences between the Cloud and Server platforms, we are not able to deliver 1:1 feature parity between the environments.
Rest assured, the Elements team is working hard to ensure our Elements Copy & Sync Server users find similar functionality in Cloud and enjoy an excellent experience with our Cloud app.
Steps to follow to migrate from Jira Server or Data Center to Jira Cloud:
- Verify that all the needed features exist on Jira Cloud (see the tables below)
- Install Elements Copy & Sync on your Jira Cloud instance
- Manually create the recipes
If you have any doubt or question contact our support team. We'll assist you in your migration.
Attaching your Support dump file to your request will reduce the support time.
