  • Read the Allowed IP addresses topic before you begin. You may not be able to connect to certain data sources without first allowing the Batch IP addresses. In these circumstances, connection tests will always fail and you will not be able to complete the pipeline.
  • You must be an administrator of the Jira Cloud instance.
  • You must be either a technical contact or billing contact of the Jira Cloud instance. To verify, log in to My Atlassian and confirm that the chosen Jira Cloud instance appears in the Licences page.

  1. In Data Loader, click Add pipeline.
  2. Choose Jira from the grid of data sources.
  3. Choose Batch Loading.

Value '0000-00-00' can't be represented as java.sql.Date


Value '0000-00-00 00:00:00' can't be represented as java.sql.Timestamp

Choose tables

Choose any tables you wish to include in the pipeline. Use the arrow buttons to move tables to the Tables to extract and load listbox and then reorder any tables with click-and-drag. Additionally, select multiple tables using the SHIFT key.

Click Continue with X tables to move forward.
