Rapid Boards are not being migrated from JIRA 4.4.5 to JIRA 5.1.1


We are in the process of migrating JIRA from 4.4.5 to 5.1.1 and we noticed that the rapid boards were not migrated. We did tweak the import from XML using the JIRA 4.4.5 entities.xml since we couldn't import the data on any other way.

It seems that using JIRA 4.4.5 i was not able to import the .zip backup file and the only way to import was using the entities.xml. There is no way to import the activeobjects.xml which contains the greenhopper data. At this point we will do the upgrade without verifying the Greenhopper functionality.

Did you ever find a resolution to this?

Not yet. I guess doing a full database refresh completely might solve the issue.
