If you want to migrate projects and issues from your Jira servers or data centers to Jira Cloud with the highest confidence and the least manual effort, the Cloud Migration Tool and Configuration Manager for Jira Cloud apps are what you are looking for.

How migrating to Jira Cloud works

Migrating to the cloud with the Cloud Migration Tool is a convenient and safe process. Start by installing the Cloud Migration Tool on the source Jira Server or Data Center instances and the Configuration Manager for Jira Cloud on your Jira Cloud site.

Then, after installing the apps, configure smooth connections between your Jira Server/Data Center instances and Jira Cloud site and migrate project configurations across them without manually copying projects and issues to the destination Jira Cloud site. 

For a successful migration, you just need to connect to the cloud, select projects, analyze changes, take action on conflicts, and run the migration.
