Migrate Asana board to Jira using csv file

Dear Atlassian community, 


we are having some teams in our organisation that want to migrate from Asana to Jira. I also looked up options we are having (also that there exist some apps that automate the migration). I would just like to know if anyone has experience with importing an Asana project as a csv file to Jira. As right now I am finding no option to match the comments from Asana to the comment field and Jira. Same is happening with subtasks. 


Maybe someone already successfully migrated Asana projects to Jira and is able to share knowledge about that!


Thanks a lot!

I believe the problem the OP is having is not related to the import step, but the export step. Exporting from asana to CSV does not appear to include comments or attached images. If they are not included in the CSV export, then there is nothing to map in Jira.  I have the same problem.   @Malin Rathjen Did you ever solve this issue? 

@Malin Rathjen - I'm facing the same issue right now. We bought a company that used Asana, and now I'm tasked with migrating the data to Jira. Where you able to find a way to export comments and attachments from Asana?

Hello @Malin Rathjen 

I don't have experience specifically with trying to bring Asana data into Jira, but it is possible to create Subtasks and issue Comments through a CSV import to Jira.

The CSV file needs to specify the Issue Type for each issue. That is where you indicate that a given item is a Subtask. When you want to create a Subtask through CSV import you also have to include in that subtask's import data the identifier for the parent issue of that subtask. If you imported the parent issues already during a previous import session, then you need to get the Jira Issue Key for that parent issue and add it as another field in the CSV for the child subtask. When you import the subtask issues, you map that field to the "Issue Id" field under the "Links & Sub-tasks" heading.
