Thank you all for your patience and understanding over the lifespan of this ticket.
What’s the deal?
I’m pleased to say that we have completed the necessary additional functionality to include Active Objects data when importing projects. This means you can now carry over your JIRA Agile project data between instances.
Sprint and Ranking data are considered to be the most important types of data in JIRA Agile and was included in the Active Objects being imported.
As mentioned in our previous update, the solution doesn’t include all data found in JIRA Agile. Boards, which harboured too much complexity to deliver in this solution within a reasonable timeframe, has been excluded from this implementation.
When can I use this?
JIRA Server will need to wait until the next major release of JIRA to utilise this feature.
Due to the internal changes necessary to provide this functionality, both the exporting and importing JIRA instances need to be versions which have this new implementation. This means Active Objects will not be imported when involving any instance that is not up-to-date with this functionality.
Once again, thank you for your patience and a big thank you to all the beta candidates that helped during our testing program for this feature.
