The GitHub importer suddenly disappeared from JIRA Cloud. What happened? Any chance it will come back?

Best regards,

Hi Jarle,

Take a look at the knowledge base article Importing data from Github:

The Github importer is no longer supported by Atlassian, but you can still import data with a CSV file. Check out the Atlassian Community to find tips and tricks from other users who've done it successfully.

I haven't seen any plans to re-introduce the importer at this point.  One thing you can do is submit a Suggestion on JAC.  Once you do that post the link here so the community can vote on the issue.
