Fogbugs import to JIRA - Missing data

Data were imported from Fogbugz to JIRA via Fogbugz Importer (Import from database) - one of the option offered by JIRA. All looks good execpt that the actions were not imported to JIRA as shown below. Looks like the event description is missing, JIRA only import when there is comment added.

i.e.

Original in Fogbugz:

Opened by User B

Assigned to user A

Edited by user A

"Editing....."

in JIRA

Created by User B

Commented by user A

"Editing ......"

--> The actions of "Assign" and "Edit" were missing if no comment associated with that event

Hi,

all of the importers cannot import anything to "Activity Tab", unfortunately this is still unsupported. Although history changes can be imported to "History" tab, but our FogBugz importer (hosted nad database) does not support that, but JSON importer can insert any required informations to that Tab - more informations about that you can find in our documentation: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Importing+Data+from+JSON

I've created an improvement request under JIM Project to support import of History data from FogBugz: https://ecosystem.atlassian.net/browse/JIM-1322
