Import issues from TargetProcess to Jira

We are evaluating Jira as our issue management system and would like to move all issues from the current issue tracker (TargetProces) to Jira. I don't see any plugin for TP to import the existing issues from TP. Can this be done without resorting to CSV import/export. We need to import everything from the existing issues - like images, attachements, etc.

What is the most suitable method to do this?

This kind of stuff tends to be fairly messy at best. We do a lot of this type of data migration and they are rarely simple. If you're importing from a tool where there is a built-in converter, it's definitely easier, but with something like TargetProcess where there is no out-of-the box converter, you basically have three options: CSV import, API scripts or user self-migration. TargetProcess does have a REST API, so you'd need to write a "translation" script that takes the data from TargetProces and transforms it into the data format and feature set of Jira, which is not trivial. CSV would probably be easier, since you can do the transformation directly in Jira once you normalize the data from TargetProces. If you don't have a lot of data to migrate, it might be fastest to just tell users to copy and paste their active data into Jira and sunset the TargetProcess system. Hopefully that will give you some ideas.

I don't see any responses yet and I too am wondering the same thing. How do I import a project from Target Process to Jira?

Eventually I went the CSV route and it worked for the most part. The import was good and useful.
