Migrating from Mantis 1.1.0a2-CVS

Hello, I saw here (https://confluence.atlassian.com/adminjiraserver073/importing-data-from-mantis-861253757.html) there is importer plugin from Mantis versions 1.1.8 to 1.2.16. Our instance of Mantis is version Mantis 1.1.0a2-CVS => tt is below the oldest supported version.

What are other options? -try to import from Mantis 1.1.0a2-CVS even though it is older than the oldest supported? Try anyway? -upgrade Mantis? The current version is 2.1.0, i.e. newer, than the newest supported version => again out of supported interval. Try anyway?

Any experience / suggestions?

Thanks, Jan

Hello Jan,

Can you export your mantis as csv from mantis GUI?  If not, you can connect to Mantis DB and write hell of a sql then export result to csv. Using csv importer feature of JIRA, import data to JIRA. I believe it's the fastest way.


Hello Tansu,

tickets in Mantis bugtracking system are not simply rows in a single table. The ticket as such consists of main data + many other related in 1:N and M:N to it (history of changes, relationship to other tickets etc.). One CSV file (like any other single table file) is unable to capture it.

This is why specific import plugins are needed.
