# How to create an Issue in GitLab
The Issue Tracker is a good place to add things that need to be improved or solved in a project.
To create an Issue, sign in to GitLab.
Go to the project where you'd like to create the Issue:
![Select a project](basicsimages/select_project.png)
Click on "Issues" on the left side of your screen:
![Issues](basicsimages/issues.png)
Click on the "+ new issue" button on the right side of your screen:
![New issue](basicsimages/new_issue.png)
Add a title and a description to your issue:
![Issue title and description](basicsimages/issue_title.png)
You may assign the Issue to a user, add a milestone and add labels (they are all optional). Then click on "submit new issue":
![Submit new issue](basicsimages/submit_new_issue.png)
Your Issue will now be added to the Issue Tracker and will be ready to be reviewed. You can comment on it and mention the people involved. You can also link Issues to the Merge Requests where the Issues are solved. To do this, you can use an [Issue closing pattern](http://doc.gitlab.com/ce/customization/issue_closing.html).

A backup creates an archive file that contains the database, all repositories and all attachments.
This archive will be saved in backup_path (see `config/gitlab.yml`).
The filename will be `[TIMESTAMP]_gitlab_backup.tar`. This timestamp can be used to restore an specific backup.
You can only restore a backup to exactly the same version of GitLab that you created it on, for example 7.2.1. The best way to migrate your repositories from one server to another is through backup restore.

Issues are stored in the database. They can't be stored in Git itself.
To migrate your repositories from one server to another with an up-to-date version of
GitLab, you can use the [import rake task](import.md) to do a mass import of the
repository. Note that if you do an import rake task, rather than a backup restore, you
will have all your repositories, but not any other data.
