Jira migration doesn’t have to be a nightmare

In Easy Software, we understand the challenges and risks that companies face during migration. That’s why we provide Jira core data migration as part of the platform transition from Jira to Easy Redmine. In the following article, we will explain the whole process, so you know exactly what to expect.

Jira migration in three steps

The Jira to Easy Redmine migration process is divided into three parts:

1. Enumerations migration

First, we meet with your organization representative and check the data structure and volumes of data to be migrated. We will estimate the duration of the entire operation and map your requirements using our special implementation protocol.

Then we handle the .ZIP Jira export file supplied by the customer and import the fundamental enumerations. In the initial phase, we compile lists of statuses, priorities, trackers, groups, roles, and issues.

2. Interim configuration and customization

In this phase, we align the primary enumerations (e.g. Task Statuses, Types, Priorities, etc.) between the two systems and adjust the elements that cannot be smoothly migrated due to their differing nature (such as Workflow, Role permissions, etc.). Additionally, we offer customization services and configure user profiles, filters, and dashboards as required.

3. Data import

After the customer has preconfigured, customized, and tested the system, we can proceed with migrating data such as users, projects, tasks, spent time, etc. This process can be repeated if necessary, starting with a test data migration. After presenting the results, we will migrate the production data and activate user accounts.

User testing

When the migration is completed, thorough user testing comes into place. The customer starts to work in his customized environment, with actual data, and provides feedback on whether everything works as he is used to.

If it doesn’t, the feedback is gradually incorporated into the system settings by our consultants to make sure everything is well-tuned and ready to work!
