I'm in progress with migrating data from Mantis to JIRA. After the data import with JIRA Import plugin I tried to perform bulk issue edit with purpose of changing issue types based on some custom field. The problem is I'm overriding 'Updated' timestamp for all edited issue. This is not desired. Is there any way to edit issues without affecting 'Updated' field?
I think you can use approach simular to the one described here
Create a date picker custom field and set it to be the same value as the current update date. Then bulk update all issues and finally do the SQL modification as described in the KB. After that delete the custom field.
Thank you Boris,
I had feeling like I'll need to delve into JIRA DB. And since this is really so there is no need in bulk edit anymore, I've created query to change issue type in DB. Here is the query in case anyone struggle with same issue (JIRA reindex is required):
UPDATE jiraissue AS U set issuetype = ( SELECT T.id FROM (SELECT * FROM jiraissue) as I LEFT JOIN issuetype AS T ON pname = (SELECT STRINGVALUE FROM customfieldvalue WHERE CUSTOMFIELD = (SELECT id FROM customfield WHERE cfname LIKE 'temp-Category' LIMIT 1) AND ISSUE = I.id) WHERE I.id = U.id LIMIT 1 )
