Importing Links from Bugzilla

While importing data from Bugzilla into Jira, using the import plugin, at the "Map Links" step, in the External Links, I have only two options "Depends on/ Blocks" and "Duplicates". This means that bugs that have "Blocks" link type as well as those that have "Depends on" link in Bugzilla, get mapped to the any one link type in Jira. Is there a way to link "Depends on" from Bugzilla to "Depends on" in Jira and "Blocks" in Bugzilla to "Blocks" in Jira?

Hi Shinjani,

quite old question, but the problem is still present. Did you find any solution how to migrate Depends on / blocks into separate issue link types?

Thank you.

We had to develop a custom solution. Exported the content out of Bugzilla, converted it for JIRA's consumption and then imported it.
