Does anyone know of any effective migration methods from Redmine to JIRA?
I have found a project that has developed a ruby program that dumps info to a jelly script at https://github.com/jhelwig/migrate-redmine-to-jira
Has anyone tried using this, and if so have you run into any issues with it?
Some people use CSV import (but that somewhat lossy conversion - e.g. currently it does not support importing dates and authors of the attachments nor issue transition/change history).
On the other hand, wrting fully-fledged Redmine importer on top of JIRA Importers Plugin (which in fact an import framework) should not be a big deal. E.g. it tooks us less than a few person weeks to write and productize Trac importer.
Feel free to ping me directly if you are interested in such direction and you would need some more detailed help with JIRA Importers Plugin.
UPDATE: Redmine Importer plugin is finally available: https://marketplace.atlassian.com/plugins/com.atlassian.jira.plugins.jira-importers-redmine-plugin
Just an update, there is now a JIRA Redmine Importer and a Redmine Workflow Bundle for JIRA available on Atlassian Marketplace. Full details here:
I've got a script that I've written over the last few days to port from Redmine to JIRA using the REST API and minimal DB updates (to fix dates, and relations, etc.).
It needs some cleanup and a little more testing before I'd say go-fo-it, but we've just used today to port our data. If you're any good at Python, it shouldn't be too bad to manipulate to your needs.
I'll work on getting it cleaned up a bit and post the link when I've got it ready.
I just tried to install this and here is the error message.
INFO 1020x1403x1 z0fzke /rest/plugins/1.0/com.atlassian.jira.plugins.jira-importers-redmine-plugin-key [atlassian.plugin.util.WaitUntil] Plugins that have yet to be enabled: [com.atlassian.jira.plugins.jira-importers-redmine-plugin], 11 seconds remaining
make sure that you have the newest version of JIRA Importers Plugin installed - should be at least 5.0.2. Redmine importer plugin is a plugin to a plugin :) And only the newest JIRA Importers Plugin supports such pluggability.
After installing the newest JIRA Importers Plugin you may need to uninstall and install again Redmine importer.
Believe me, before posting my question I did explore the problem myself - tried enabling/re-enabling REST, tried entering API key instead of login/pass, tried with different account, including the first admin one, checked the connectivity between Jira & Redmine - nothing helps! The issue seems to be with the script itself.
I am running Jira 5.0 (+ Importers plugin 5.0.2 + Redmine plugin), Redmine 2.0.3.stable.9889 with no plugins.
If you are still getting the unknown host exception since it unclear from your last messag what your issue is, then try doing a trace route to your redmine server. If the that fails which is what I would expect, I would try getting the ip address of the redmine server and try that out. If the trace route with the ip address works, then either update your hosts file or use the ip address directly. If that fails then probably you either a proxy server or a firewall issue and I would contact your network admin person to help you out.
An unknown host exception has nothting to do with the script. It deals with your network configuration.
As Adam Jakubowski suggests - you need to upgrade to the newer version. There was a stupid bug in the first released version which made it impossible to authenticate to Redmine if your password was different than the username (i.e. in almost all cases, but in our test environment :) ). Now it's fixed.
In order to make redmine importer work you should enable rest API in your Redmine Importer.
According to redmine docs :To enable the API-style authentication, you have to check Enable REST API in Administration -> Settings -> Authentication.<h6> </h6>
If you are keen to provide a testimonial for your switch to JIRA please fill out this form:
We will then add your testimonial to a the Redmine tab on the JIRA Importers page:
Love to add you to that page!
would love to provide a testimonial if it worked.. :-)
ok so csv is not useful since Redmine doesn't supply all the fields on extract (like comments)
Jira Redmine import doesn't work for me..
I tried the Jelly script in the original question. . that is the closest so fa.r. But fails as it thinks I'm annonymous.. can't get to the import screen without being logged in so not sure why it thinks I'm annoymous.. I thought the Jelly Runner used the logged in user..
Gary, could you share with us what did not work for you?
Screenshots, log files, any problem description - all it will be very useful for us.

Thanks in advance,
I actually have a question in the questions area for this already.. https://answers.atlassian.com/questions/118707/trying-to-import-issues-using-jelly-but-receive-an-error</a<>>
As for the Redmine Plugin. . I have a ticket open on that one. . What I think the issue was is that it doesn't create users like the CSV one does.. (assumption). I noticed when I switched to using Jelly I had the anonymous user issue.. this was because my reporters didn't exist in my local Jira and the jelly import thought they were anonymous users trying to create tickets.. I'm assuming that is the same issue the Redmine Plugin had but it's error message of "Forbidden" didn't reall...
Gary, the Redmine importer will create users for you automatically like CSV importer.
Unfortunately there is a bug in Redmine Importer that you faced. The NotAuthorizedException is thrown when you try to import project that has module 'Time Tracking' disabled in Redmine. As as temporary solution You may enable time tracking for your project just for the import.
Hello i'm getting a similar issue
Api login is enabled
i dont have any proxy
firewall is ok as i can't hit the api from an external network
