We're about to import an Agile project from another company's JIRA instance. There are multiple projects in there so there's a huge chance we cannot receive the complete database export XML (generated by the usual exporter).
I thought of an alternative and the question is: is this possible?
Any other alternatives, hints, tips? Missed something else? Thanks.
JIRA XML importer will not handle the XML you are discussing. I would use the Excel output format, and then convert it to CSV, and then import using the CSV importer.
While it is possible that the Sprints may work by doing this, I expect that you will have to have already created identical boards and sprint names first.
Hi Boris, thanks. Why would the XML importer not handle the XML output from the issue navigator? Sounds a bit strange (but I'm definitely no expert in this field, there may be a good reason). How about the globally used values that may already exist? No overwriting if they do? This seems to go for the rank (lexo-rank) mainly. This may contain values such as 1|xzzwvc:. Strangely, the rank values themselves are empty in XML, but present in Excel. All other global ordering numbers (id's) seem not present in xls/CVS, as opposed to XML so they should pose not problem anyway.
