This is non-ClearQuest based answer. Our company needed integration with a number of different systems using a number of methods. The most successful ones are based on a continuously running (via Bamboo :)) Groovy script that keeps things in sync within a couple of minutes:
The JIRA side options are pretty good, you need to understand the other side (ClearQuest in your case) to see what can be done. Usually getting information is easier that updating information and workflow in the other products.
Apology for blatant plug :)
Clearvision have an application to do that called Affinity - see details here: http://www.clearvision-cm.com/clearvision-news/affinity-change-management-integration.html
Bridging is due in the next Release, but if require assistance with that (there are a number of pitfalls) feel free to get in touch (company details are on my profile) and we will be happy to discuss how we can help.
Clearvision are both an IBM and Atlassian partner and are uniquely placed to help with migrations, bridging and hybrid solutions between IBM Rational products (Clearcase and Clearquest) and Atlassians.
If the system you need to integrate with already has an importer or solution as Martin describes, that would be the first choice to investigate. Even if it doesn't do everything you need, it might reduce your integration costs significantly.
Atlassian just released a ClearQuest to JIRA Migration cookbook that guides evaluators through the prototype setup. It includes best practices on Proof-of-Concept planning and execution, data migration, production approval process and points to relevant add-ons and Experts that can help.
It doesn't provide instructions how to sync the two but refers to Experts who could help with a customized interface.
How do I gain access to that site for ClearQuest to JIRA Migration cookbook? I am interested in an integration between ClearQuest and Jira.
When I login it says:
Page level restrictions apply to this page. These restrictions limit access to specific users or groups.
I am also planning to integrate IBM ClearQuest with JIRA but haven't find the complete details. In our ClearQuest Environment we need only some Testing Project which needs to be integrated with JIRA , Test cases upload, Project Fields , with complete project details, Workflows,ETC tracking in both ClearQuest and Jira (sync). Please assist how can I integrate this scenario any help appreciated.
