I'm migrating from an old external system into Jira using the System's External System Import option, having built a valid json file. This includes attachment files and I'm providing a URI that is valid in the old system (as I've sign into that system), but not on the Jira's import server. That is, the URI is not public.
Have others encountered this before and if so, suggestions please, on how to over come during importing. (Only idea I have have is to import the issues without attachments and afterwards use the API to download each attachment to the issue one at a time. Pain!)
Welcome to community. You can always do the attachment part later with your other idea. You can visit this post to see a similar answer on how to use API to easily achieve transfer to any instance without you downloading any of the files. See my comments on the post link above. Let us know how it goes.
Hi and thank you for your reply.
It's likely my approach will be similar to that you described. An alternative that might work would be to (temporary) copy all attachments to publicly shared dropbox folder (or similar) before I migrate and supply those URL to the migrator.
Again, thank you
