I receive the above error when attempting to import data from Pivotal tracker. The error log shows the following:

According to the documentation, this failure is due to our Jira Agile licensing being expired. https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirakb/unexpected-failure-occurred-when-import-data-from-pivotal-tracker-815252251.html
So my question is: you have to have a JIRA Agile license in addition to the regular JIRA license in order to import data from Pivotal Tracker?
This looks to me like the plugin is not fully compatible with JIRA 7.0+. Several APIs changed in the 7.0 release, including those of major plugins like JIRA Agile. Part of the repackaging of JIRA Agile as a component of JIRA Software means that its licensing works differently, and the API that this plugin is trying to call no longer exists as a result. It is no longer meaningful to ask for a "GreenHopperLicense" itself.
See this comment in the API for what the plugin developer needs to be doing, instead:
from 7.0.0 onwards, JIRA Agile no longer maintains its own notion of a license. Please call ApplicationAuthorizationService.hasNoLicensingAccessErrors(ApplicationKey.valueOf("jira-software")) instead.
Edit: As I noted in a comment below, the fix is to upgrade the JIRA Importers Plugin. This is a 7.0 compatibility issue that has already been fixed:
In other words, this is a bug in the Pivotal Tracker importer. They need to make this change for JIRA 7 compatibility. Specifically the call here:
It makes sense, I should have thought of "importer looking for the wrong licence type" as being a possible problem when @Jim Hackney was able to confirm Software was enabled and working fine!
So, once I realized that this is actually our plugin I went digging through it and found out that this has already been fixed. You need to upgrade the JIRA Importers Plugin to 7.0.12 or later.
You might have tried it and not bought it, then not removed the add-on!
It's a bit of a poor failure, but what's happening here is that the importer is seeing that Agile is installed and hence trying to write some of the incoming data into Agile related fields (I have a feeling it's the ranking, but I'm not sure).
Then, as the add-on is expired, it's saying "nope", and failing unhelpfully, instead of just ignoring it.
You could try un-installing Agile completely, then the importer won't try to use it.
