What data is migrated
On WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira server version WBS code of a issue can be set each WBS (Gantt WBS, Project WBS, Filter WBS). On the other hand, WBS code of a issue have to be unique on WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira cloud version.
Therefore, If the same issue has WBS code on several WBS (e.g. Issue X’s WBS codes on Gantt A , on Gantt B and on Project C are different), used WBS Code is following priority.
Newer Gantt > Older Gantt > Project > Newer Filter > Older Fileter
Only fields of editable standard columns, successors and predecessors are migrated.
Editable Standard Columns
Differences in specifications
On WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira server version, templates are issues.
Gantt-Chart data such as start date
Migrate data as a Jira field.
Hierarchy and Dependency
Migrate data as a Jira issue link.
What data is not migrated
Currently Gantt data migration is not supported although we plan it.
It’s because JCMA doesn’t migrate issue filters.
After JCMA supports filters, we will be going to support gantt data migration.
Lag/Lead data migration is not supported due to a bug in JCMA that does not correctly convert the issue link IDs.
WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira system settings is not migrated. Thus please configure it manually.
