We're trying to import a project from Trac to JIRA.
In the guide it says the following:
However, there is no opportunity for me to ever make such a mapping? Is the documentation incorrect or am I missing something?
I definantly don't want these duplicate users in JIRA that I cannot delete... Since you cannot change the user that made a comment like you can for assignee. Which in turn makes it impossible to delete these duplicate users without deleting all the comments.
I solved this myself, not by using any JIRA features. But instead I used this script: https://trac-hacks.org/wiki/RenameUsersScriptand ran it on the trac SQLite database file to rename the users to the JIRA ones.
This then worked great when importing the Trac project in JIRA.
Just make sure you backup your Trac database before running the script.
Good find on the RenameUsersScript!
I wrote another PHP script that will update your trac.db ticket_change records replacing the trac-style changeset repository links to a format acceptable by JIRA. Our user story and sample SQL commands to rename users prior to import is also included at the bottom of the script in comments.
