I need to import stories from Assembla and defects from Redmine. Best practise?

My company has separate apps for Agile stories (Assembla) and our bugs (Redmine).

We want to move everything into JIra cloud. So far I have created a CSV from Assembla.

What is the way to setup a project like this built on SCRUM?

Without knowing the setup of those two systems, or the details of how you want to use it, I can't tell you much.

But, I would probably set up a new Scrum project in JIRA Software, and ensure it has Stories and Bugs, plus any other issue types you want to use later.

You may want to set up more than one project too - if you have multiple products or some way that you'd like to break up your data and/or users.

Once set up, you should be able to import your Assembla CSV, although I would add an extra column to it with the ehading "issue type" and pre-fill it on every line with "story".  You should be able to do something similar with redmine data (there is a redmine importer in JIRA, but I've not used it for years and I don't know if Cloud has it)


Hi Nic. I confirm that Redmine is also available on Cloud for importing issues:

Thank you Nic & Ignacio. I'll get cracking on setting up a new Scrum project. I've tested each importer individually and see how they work. Fun and challenging times.

Ultimately my plan is to create a hierarchical project where stories are at the top with test cases connected by story and the story + testcase linked to defects discovered

Yes, JIRA doesn't lend itself to the handling of test cases, so I'd suggest a look at Zephyr too.

Thanks, we have Teststuff (inherited) I had been looking at Testrail but I'll check out Zephyr too, thanks.

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
