We are currently working on migration of defect from an external application to JIRA 7.0. We understand preferred way to import the defects is using JIM. However, we are analyzing the option using REST API to create all the issues that are to be migrated, as JIM introduces manual intervention and the requirement is to have a one click migration. WIth this context we have below questions
While importing issue using JIM, the utility provides the creation of users in JIRA as part of the data import to the user picker fields. REST API expects the user to be available, active and having appropriate permission in the project. Do we have any workaround to mimic the functionality of JIM in REST API while creating the issue.?
Similar concerns are for fields with select options, components and versions. Do we have any suggestion to create those entries on the fly while creating issue using REST API?
