Hi $reporterFirstName$,

We've not received any response from you for a while, so we assume that this issue is resolved. However, if it's not the case, feel free to reopen it and we will respond accordingly.





When importing .csv file it is important to include headers as first row. Importing mechanism omits the first row. 


  • "name" column defines the template name as seen in the picker
  • "content" column defines the template content (along with macros etc)
  • "scope" column defines the template scope, and can take one of following values (case sensitive!): GLOBAL, PROJECT, USER, GROUP
  • "scopeParam" column is used with connection to PROJECT scope (it will denote project key) or to USER scope (in that case it will denote user accountId), or to GROUP scope (in that case it will be newline-separated list of Jira group names)
  • "favourite" columns defines whether the template should appear in the Favourite Bar or not

Migrating from Server to Cloud

We recommend moving your templates with Atlassian Migration Program.

Exporting / Importing is supposed to work only for Jira Cloud backups.

See migration guide

In case you cannot user Atlassian Migration Program need to migrate from Server, please note the following:

  • Before importing into Cloud, you will need to delete all existing templates
  • Canned Responses for Jira Server does not have a notion of "GROUP" scope - it is available only for Cloud version of Canned Responses.
  • Canned Responses for Jira Server does not have a Quick toolbar - the "favorite" column will only be meaningful for Jira Cloud installations
  • Jira Server has a different way of user identification than Jira Cloud. In server, it is still an userKey (i.e. "admin", "pstefaniak"), while in Jira Cloud it is accountId ("557058:0c7dd459-31b7-4ef1-ae6c-a4a28ead7729") - you will need to manually add accountId for users in the new instance
  • Custom Fields in macros are referenced by internal ID instead of custom field name. It means that on different instances the templates might produce different result, rendering different macro(s) than expected

  • No labels
