How dashboards, boards and filters are migrated

The Jira Cloud Migration Assistant lets you migrate dashboards, all boards and filters to cloud.

Migrate dashboards

You can choose one of the following options to migrate dashboards using Jira Cloud Migration Assistant:



All dashboards

This includes dashboards on your server or Data Center.


No dashboards will be included for migration.

Note that:

  • Some dashboards may have missing gadgets because certain gadgets on your server or Data Center are either third-party or not currently supported in the cloud.

  • Some projects related to dashboards may not have been selected for migration. You can continue migrating these dashboards. We'll relink when you migrate them again, along with their associated projects.

Gadgets supported in Jira Cloud Migration Assistant

During the migration, you may find that some gadgets are missing from the dashboards. This is because some gadgets on the server are either third-party or not currently supported in the cloud. The following table lists all gadgets that are migrated using Jira Cloud Migration Assistant and those that are unsupported by the migration assistant or the cloud:

  • Boards and filters shared with public/private, users, groups, or with a non-migrating Project C would not be migrated.
