How to get the jira issue key while importing?

Hi,

I need to get the new issue key right after it is created. How can I do that?

Cheers,

Petya

Here is what I did:

I created my new class that inserts the needed data in the help database. Then I called from DefaultJiraDataImporter.

Huh? What are you doing and what are you planing to do?

I develop a Savannah importer plugin as a part of your JIM plugin. What I need to do is to insert into a table the old and the new issue key. Then I want to create an automatic redirection on the Savannah site to the migrated issue in JIRA.

Where do you want to get it? What do you want to use it for?

Actually, I need the URL of each issue. I want to do a redirection from Savannah to JIRA. For that purpose I have to store somewhere the two URLs. I have already the external URL, but I don't know how to get the new one.

So you could actually run a search afterwards and get the External System ID and Issue Key, that would allow you to match them. No need to do that in the importer itself.

Do you mean to search in the database? If yes, it won't work because we have a few JIRA instances. That is why we need the links to be stored during the import. So, is there a way to get the issue key and/or issue link?

No it the database directly, just to use Issue Navigator. I believe there's no other option currently.

What about the project key?

In case of projects (and others, except issues unfortunately) there's actually a callback that your plugin can implement - there's ImportDataBean.getCallbacks and there are several callbacks you can implement. There's afterProjectCreated callback as well.

I'm going to add afterIssueCreated callback, it will be released in JIRA 6.0
