This is manual how to migrate WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira Server/Data Center to WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira Cloud using Jira Cloud Migration Assistant (JCMA).
Prerequisites for Migration
To perform the migration, WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira Server/Data Center version must be 9.14.0 or higher. If you are using 9.13.x or lower, please update the app first.

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.
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. On the other hand, on WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira cloud version, templates are app own data. Thus migrated issues for template are meaningless. So they are deleted automatically in migration process. And template issue type also.
