Synchronize Jira Server with Jira Cloud

Sebastian Hesse

This use case describes how you can synchronize Jira issues between a Jira Server and a Jira Cloud instance. This can be helpful when you want to:

Backbone supports the full set of features to synchronize issues between Jira Server and Jira Cloud. The only limitation is having to configure it on the Jira Server side.

Configuration guide

In this guide, you will configure Backbone so that it synchronizes issues between a project on Jira Server and a project on Jira Cloud. This guide assumes the other project already exists.

  1. Install Backbone Issue Sync in both Jiras.
  2. Create a new synchronization between both projects in the Jira Server instance.

  3. Configure Issue Type Mappings and Field Mappings.

Congratulations! The basic configuration is now complete. You can now add AttachmentComment or Workflow Mappings if desired.

Good to know

  • Synchronizations between Jira Server and Jira Cloud are always configured on the Jira Server side.
  • Backbone must be installed and licensed on both sides.
