Jira Cloud Migration Assistant Application

Abstract

How to migrate Server/Data Centre to Cloud using the Jira Migration Assistant Application.

About Jira Migration Assistant App

Tempo is excited to participate in the early access program (EAP) for the Jira Cloud Migration Assistant. Built upon Atlassian's Jira Cloud Migration Assistant App, the Migration Assistant EAP tool enables you to automatically migrate nearly all your Tempo data, as well as data from your other Jira add-ons. The EAP is designed to support Server or Data Centre customers who are using Timesheets 11.8.0 and/or Planner 8.1 and Jira version 8.4 and higher.

Once you are enrolled in Atlassian's EAP for the Jira Cloud Migration Assistant App and should need any assistance, you can contact the Atlassian's support team directly.
