Within our organisation we are using MKS for one team and Jira for other
We would like to have a integration of MKS and JIRA. Is there any way to perform it?
Both should be in synchronisation so should work in both directions.
When issue is created in Jira should reflect in MKS
when issue is created in MKS should reflect in JIRA.
Do any one have any idea about achieving this?
I did a brute force cutover from MKS to Jira. With 2 months of planning, creating cleanup/import scripts and testing, I was able to import some 5000 of 15K+ "recent" MKS issues into Jira and perform total switchover in 4 hours on a Sunday morning. The integration also including changes in SVN hook scripts and incorporatging the Jenkins CI build servers. Good luck with running to different bug tracking systems in parallel. We are using an older version of MKS but I found the MKS interfaces quite crude compared with Jira's various interfacing facilities.
MKS = Marks and Spencer? Without knowing what you are talking about on the MKS side, I can't offer you anything there. On the Jira side, yes, it has several incoming and outgoing interfaces. For example
But the best method for doing it is up to you - it depends on exactly what you're trying to update, how much data you want to exchange, and it's probably determined mostly by what MKS can do. Which we don't know.
Ah, ok. I've never seen it, so I'm not going to be able to help much on that side.
If no-one else has anything to offer, then do you know how extensible it is off-the-shelf? Can you write scripts/plugins/functions for it? Ones that might be able to use one or more of the data sources or interfaces I mentioned before?
BTW, since I did my MKS importing there is now a commerical plugin that sounds interesting:
Maybe that might help.
