What's the best way to migrate Github issues into Jira?

I'd like to only migrate open issues, from multiple repos. I do not need to move code.

late answer for the above private repo question, but you need to use OAUTH token to access:

There was some plugins to do that job before, but those are only for Jira Server.

I'm not sure which version of JIRA you are using. But the following applies to both,


  1. Get list of issues in JSON format using following link from the browser<repo-owner-name>/<repo-name>/issues?state:open
  2. Convert JSON to CSV using any online converter
  3. User Jira's External system import > choose CSV and upload the file.

Thank you! Does that apply to the cloud version too?

Hey. Did you find a way to manage the formatting of github Markdown to Jira "markdown"?

this is not working for a private repo - does anyone have any advice on what else to do?

That URL is not working for me for a private repo in an organization. Not sure whether the fact that it's private or the fact that it's on an org is the problem.

@andremoura_we are trying to convert github issues to Jira issues. So we are using JSON to CSV here. If you want to convert to confluence - use json to markdown convertor using npm package


@Riley Shanahanand @J. Pablo Fernández private repos need to be authorized to access api data.. Use tools like postman and use basic credentials to fetch the result (if it is one time thing)

Basic auth in postman worked for me.  Thanks.
