Migrating From TFS to JIRA

Hi, we are in the process of moving from TFS to JIRA. I followed this video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HHgW-ocvwXg&t=1s however the only import options I have in the 'JIRA Import wizard' screen are CSV, Trello and JSON. I do not have the option to import a Microsoft TFS export file as shown in the video. Any ideas why this might be or if this feature was removed?

The video shows the use of a CSV file, so I'm a little confused by the question.


You can reach the external system import via two ways.

1) As a JIRA Software Users with Bulk Change permissions: 

   If you go for "Import issues from CSV" menu item under "Issues" in the top-menu, you will      find limited options , especially import from CSV,Trello and JSON

2) As JIRA Administrators with global permission

   If you Select Administration > System > Import & Export > External System Import. you can find more options as described in the video.

So please try with JIRA Admin permissions.
