Migrating from Stash to Bitbucket

We are looking at migrating several Stash respositories into Bitbucket. These repositories have accumulated a healthy number of pull request comments that we would like to bring along as a part of the migration.

Is this possible (and how)?

Hi Robert,

I'm afraid not. Obviously importing the Git repositories is easy enough, but we don't have any tooling around migrating the pull request data.

Your best and only bet at the moment would be to use the various REST APIs of both products to recreate the data in some form.

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/BITBUCKET/pullrequests+Resource

https://developer.atlassian.com/static/rest/stash/latest/stash-rest.html#idm1341440

I'm not going to lie - that could be quite tricky. Some things that come to mind:

1. Recreating the original user - we don't have a sudo REST endpoint. If that is important I might suggest writing a simple plugin with an http filter that lets you impersonate a given user.

2. To create a pull request for a branch that has already been merged you would probably have to create 2 temporary branches in Stash on the commits prior to the PR merge. You could then attach the relevant comments, and then either move the source branch to the target branch which will then mark the PR as merged, or just decline it.

Let me know if you have any specific questions, but otherwise I'm afraid in the short term there isn't much else you can do.

Hi,

My team is in the same scenario.

Has anything been done since this question was answered, or will migrating Stash to BitBucket imply we lose pull request history?

Hi,

I am trying to create pull request and attach the relevant comments but, it creates the PR with all commits associated with branch.

URL: https://api.bitbucket.org/2.0/repositories/suresh2702/test/pullrequests

{  
   "title":"Testing pull request created fourth time. with single commit ",
   "close_source_branch":true,
   "destination":{  
      "repository":{  
         "type":"repository",
         "name":"test"
      },
      "branch":{  
         "name":"master"
      }
   },
   "state":"OPEN",
   "source":{  
      "repository":{  
         "type":"repository",
         "name":"test"
      },
      "branch":{  
         "name":"BXI-01"
      },
      "commit":{  
         "hash":"e95bc71987c76503657d273aa7afc6209c4014e8"
      }
   },
   "reviewers":[  
      {  
         "username":"xyz"
      }
   ]
}

 

 Where I am wrong?
