Import issue history by CSV?

Hi Everyone,

is there a way to import issue history using the CSV import? I'm on to import issues from ClearQuest and we are able to export the issue history from CQ.

It would be great if we could import the history details as well.

Thanks in advance!

Do you want the good news first or the bad news first? Well, actually, there is no good news. :) You can only import historical dates such as "create date," but there is no way to import the field data change history, workflow history or other things via CSV import. 

Thank you dave for the reply our plan is to import existing ALM data to xray for JIRA.

The only file format that allows you to import Issue History is JSON as far as I know.

Thank you steven for the reply we are moving ALM existing data into xray for JIRA.
