Important Notes

Associations from Git data
Indexing Jira issues via commit messages is the same in Jira Server + Data Center as Jira Cloud. All the associations will be preserved.

Manual commit associations
At this time, manual commit <–> Jira issue associations cannot be migrated automatically but request GIJ Cloud Support for instructions on how to check.

Self-hosted Git servers
When connecting a self-hosted git server to Git Integration for Jira Cloud the git server must have a publicly addressable + route-able address., Azure DevOps, and other services hosted on the “public cloud” work without any administrator interventions.

For more information, see: Allowlist (whitelist) GIJ Cloud

Known Atlassian issue:
We highly recommend testing your Jira migration to the Cloud on a test Jira Cloud site. AC-1528 is a bug in Atlassian Jira Cloud that breaks all Jira Cloud Atlassian Marketplace apps when a new project import is made. When migrating your users to Jira Cloud – we recommend installing and configuring the Git Integration for Jira Cloud app after all of your Jira users/projects/issues data is imported and verified.



Steps to migrate

Currently there are not automatic steps to migrate from Jira Server + Data Center to Jira Cloud.
