I have read several posts about this but haven't got a definite answer.
I need to migrate all issues in bitbucket (on multiple repos) to jira, to a single project that already exists.
1- is there a wizard-like import that will help mapping the fields and types?
2- if not, and the only (regretfully) way to do this is with json importer, how do i import to an existing project with existing issue types, workflows etc.?
2.1- Why isn't there a simpler way?!
3. how do i disable issues in bitbucket afterwards (to prevent new issues from being created)
Hi Joel! If you're using Jira Cloud then the only option available is to use the Json importer, as explained at Importing data from Bitbucket. Note that you won't be able to import the issues into an existing project, you'll need to create a new one.
To disable issues in Bitbucket, navigate to the repository, go to Settings > Issue tracker and check the box 'No issue tracker'.
Hope that helps!
I understand. I assume the path would be to import to a new project, then move the tickets to the existing project and then delete the new project. correct?
also, will i loose the attachments?
This is a big drawback in the move from Bitbucket issues to Jira. I fail to understand why there is not a simple wizard-like tool for it.
