Import / Export

Automation for Jira provides a global import export functionality to export all your rules to JSON. This can be used for:

  • Backing up rules
  • Copying rules from one Jira instance to another
  • Versioning rules in an external system

Import/Export is only available to global administrators. In the Automation rules global admin section, hit the '...' menu top right to either import or export rules: Import or export

Importing rules


Please note that the JSON export has to be from the same version of Automation for Jira, or an import may fail.

Importing rules allows global administrators to select exactly which rules to import and with which project context. Imported rules will be imported disabled and will have to be manually enabled after import. If a rule with the same name already exists, the imported rule's name will be prefixed with Copy of *existing rule name*.
