Migrating to Jira Cloud

If you are considering migrating your Jira instance from Server or Data Center to the Cloud, this page provides useful information about Optimizer for Jira and how it can help make your migration even easier.

Do you need to migrate Optimizer for Jira data?

Great news! No migration is required to move Optimizer for Jira from Server/Data Center to Jira Cloud.

Optimizer does not store any data that needs to be migrated and will only display information based on what is contained in your Jira system. This means you can continue to use Optimizer on your current Jira instance without any implications to your planned migration.

Use Optimizer to speed up your migration process

Optimizer is the all-in-one Jira admin tool that is designed to help you audit, analyze, configure, and optimize your Jira sites. It will help you review the Jira site and perform a clean-up, minimizing the amount of data that needs to be migrated across to the new Jira instance.

Hundreds of admins worldwide are using the features in Optimizer to streamline their Jira migration process. It excels at helping admins identify unused, inactive, or unnecessary data, such as outdated custom fields, inactive users, or unused workflows. Once identified, you can easily configure or delete projects, custom fields, or other configurations in a matter of minutes.

With less data to migrate, the migration process should be faster, and your new Jira Cloud site should be easier to use and manage over the long term.
