Migration from Trello

Hello,

We use Trello right now, and I am considering a switch to JIRA Core. I tried several different imports, with limited success. 

1) Tried to import to import multiple Trello boards. I stopped this because i am just doing a test, and did not want to import 100 users.

2) Next I tried importing just one board with about 7 users. This met with mixed success. THe lists created did not move over as they were on my board. I only got 6 out of 56 cards imported

3) Next I tried JSON export and import. I did this twice. Once on an exisiting board. Then I tired it on a copy of a board with all of the users removed (except one). I got the same error log both times. The import failed both times. any tips or tricks would be helpful.

Hi John ! 

I personally imported all my trello Boards using this method. It worked for me, but I'm alone on my boards :) Can you check and tell me if it works for you ?
