How do I import Trello projects into Jira Software?

The System >JIRA Import Wizard > Trello importer throws errors. I can't get a Trello exported JSON file to work either.

The JIRA Import Wizard worked for me. Maybe they've fixed a bug in the last year.

JIRA home screen > Settings > System > External System Import > Trello

It will import the Trello cards into a new Project (wouldn't let me pick an existing project). You can then Move the cards into your actual project; the Move will let you map the newly created statuses (from Trello) to existing statuses in your actual project. The last screen before you confirm the move will also let you see what fields it's going to drop.

Worked well for me.

Hi Mike!


Can you export projects from Trello to EXcel or XML file? If so you can import project to JIRA using e.g. CSV file

Hi Mike, 

You can use to synchronize your Trello Cards with JIRA Issues. 


Note that the 'Trello Sync for Jira' app is currently not available for cloud. 

A Trello Power-Up called "Jira" allows converting and linking individual cards to Jira boards. Look for it in the Trello Power-Ups store.
