Migration from Pivotal Tracker to Jira

Could someone let me know how do I migrate from Pivotal Tracker to Jira. I need all projects and stories, bugs from Pivotal Tracker to Jira Agile software.

What is the best way to do??

But it seems like,Jira no longer supports pivotal importer. 



Could you suggest other methods?

Export your Pivotal data to CSV and import that.

How do you migrate the story task as subtask for issue? what are the defined field?

Thanks :) that is helpful. 


seeing the example in the page for subtask. 

Does it mean i need to have each subtask as separate row? 



You can create sub-tasks of issues by adding two columns to your CSV file with the headings "Issue Id" and "Parent Id".

  • Give each parent issue a unique, sequential number in the Issue Id column. Leave the Parent Id column blank.
  • For each subtask, put the parent issue number in the Parent Id column. Leave the Issue Id column blank.

In this example, the fourth issue is a sub-task of the second issue because its Parent Id matches the second issue's Issue Id:

IssueType, Summary, FixVersion, FixVersion, FixVersion, Component, Component, Issue ID, Parent ID, Reporter

Bug, "First issue", v1, , , Component1, , 1, , jbloggs

Bug, "Second issue", v2, , , Component1, Component2, 2, , fferdinando

Bug, "Third issue", v1, v2, v3, Component1, , 3, , fferdinando

Sub-task, "Fourth issue", v1, v2, , Component2, , , 2, jbloggs

because while creating automatic CSV in pivotal tacker, it has all the task in same row associating it with the user story. 

Here is link for pivotal excel export - https://www.pivotaltracker.com/help/articles/csv_import_export/ 

If I need to keep all story task (subtask in JIRA) in new row for each story. Then I need to manually create the excel sheet to feed this information in JIRA

Yes, one row per issue, whatever the type.

So it mean i need to manually insert everything :( Is there no other solution for this problem
