i've doing a migration from JIRA 4.1 to JIRA 4.4.5 to 6.4.7 and finaly to JIRA cloud.
after the export from 6.4.7 the attachments won't import. getting the following error:
attachements.zip contains a dir attachments with the projects.
the server is running on linux ubuntu when copying to my local windows 7 machine the zip errors because of long file names.
I've already created my own solution. By making a cloud backup en exploring the backup file i found the filenames only have a id number from JIRA not a complete filename with file extention.
After making a python script thas renames all the file name from a complete name to a JIRA file id i can now import the attachments
part of my python script that renames all attachments:
is searches the attachment directory for sub directories when a file is found , the first char until "_" wil be the file name (JIRA file id)
def checkFileNames(): found = 0 reNamed = 0 errors = 0 print "$$$$$$$$$$$$$$ Starting to rename files $$$$$$$$$$$$$" for dirName,subdirList,fileList in os.walk(rootDir): for fname in fileList: found = found+1 if "_" in fname: fileId = (fname[0:fname.find('_')]) print fileId print dirName +" "+fname+" "+fileId+" "+str(subdirList) os.rename (dirName+'/'+fname, dirName+'/'+fileId) reNamed = reNamed+1 else: print "Error "+fname+" not contain _ or already done" errors = errors+1 print "\n Renaming DONE \n found "+str(found)+" files Renamed:"+str(reNamed)+" Errors:"+str(errors)
so the new file tree looks like:

Hope atlassian wil document this as a important solution to the import errors people have when migrating and wil change this as option in the cloud import tool.
Could you confirm that the attachments.zip file structure is the following:
In case you are sure everything is fine, then I would suggest you to open a support ticket under support.atlassian.net
Yes i'm sure is used the following structure
today i've tried again also i've made a small attachments.zip with the following:
(xxxxxxxx = name)
Two projectsnames AAI and AANVRAAG back-uped from the JIRA server
the following still give a error when uploading
