Redmine issue Importer - enable control over user import & more control over field mappings

After importing a project, unfortunately old users (40+ before we hit our user cap) were auto created inside Jira w/o my input. Now I have to delete a bunch of users :(

Also, it'd be best if we had more control of the field mappings. In Redmine, "sprints" are mapped to "versions" in Jira when they should be mapped to Jira sprints. Redmine "releases" should be mapped to Jira versions.

Can anyone help with this?

Thanks!

Hi Yen,

You cannot control the import process of Users in Redmine Importer - always all users are imported to JIRA, so unfortunately you will need to manually remove (or deactivate) unwanted users.

As I recall, "Sprints" and "Releases" are not a standard fileds of Redmine, but it's coming from one of the plugins and we are not planning to support any of the Redmine plugins in the near future - if you think we should, please open an Improvement request under JIM project: https://ecosystem.atlassian.net/browse/JIM

Please correct me if I'm wrong, also let me know if you are facing any other problems with your import process, I'd be more than happy to help you with any of them.

As this posting is almost a year old, is it still the case and we can't control  the import process of Users from Redmine to Jira?  We already created users in JIRA and don't want the duplication.
