We want to add our new issue tracker system to JIRA built-in importers. Is it possible? If yes, please let us know how to achieve it?
Here we found that JIRA no longer supports third party importers.
But again we have a tutorial for writing a custom importer. Is this different from adding a new issue tracker system to built-in importers? If it is different, what is it for?
We are totally confused with these.
Can anyone please clarify my question and about these tutorials.
An importer is a block of code that can read and understand a data source (file, database connection, etc) and convert the incoming data into JIRA data.
These data sources are almost always other issue trackers of some form.
To add a new importer, a new add-on is required to implement the read-source-write-JIRA process. So "a new issue tracker importer" is just "an importer"
On Cloud, you cannot add add-ons of this type. You could write a Connect add-on that runs elsewhere to read your data and poke it into JIRA over REST though.
For Server JIRA, your tutorial link is the starting point.
