Ok! Finally i found solution! The problem lies here:

java.sql.SQLException: Invalid value for getFloat() - ' ' in column 2

Somewhere in database stored an empty string. MySQL JDBC driver tries to get that value as float and fails in com.mysql.jdbc.ResultSetImpl.java getFloatFromString method

I've got that drivers sources and modified, the code listed below works:
private final float parseFloatSkipErrors(String val)
            return Float.parseFloat(val);
        catch (NumberFormatException ex)
            return 0.0f;

    private final double parseDoubleSkipErrors(String val)
            return Double.parseDouble(val);
        catch (NumberFormatException ex)
            return 0.0f;

	private final float getFloatFromString(String val, int columnIndex)
			throws SQLException {
		try {
			if ((val != null)) {
				if (val.length() == 0) {
					return convertToZeroWithEmptyCheck();

				float f = parseFloatSkipErrors(val);

				if (this.jdbcCompliantTruncationForReads) {
					if (f == Float.MIN_VALUE || f == Float.MAX_VALUE) {
						double valAsDouble = parseDoubleSkipErrors(val);

						// Straight comparison is not reliable when at
						// absolute endpoints of Float.MIN_VALUE or 
						// Float.MAX_VALUE, so use epsillons with DOUBLEs

			            if ((valAsDouble < Float.MIN_VALUE - MIN_DIFF_PREC)
			                || (valAsDouble > Float.MAX_VALUE - MAX_DIFF_PREC)) {
			              throwRangeException(String.valueOf(valAsDouble), columnIndex,

				return f;

			return 0; // for NULL
		} catch (NumberFormatException nfe) {
			try {
				Double valueAsDouble = parseDoubleSkipErrors(val);
				float valueAsFloat = valueAsDouble.floatValue();
				if (this.jdbcCompliantTruncationForReads) {

					if (this.jdbcCompliantTruncationForReads && 
							valueAsFloat == Float.NEGATIVE_INFINITY ||
							valueAsFloat == Float.POSITIVE_INFINITY) {
								columnIndex, Types.FLOAT);

				return valueAsFloat;
			} catch (NumberFormatException newNfe) {
				; // ignore, it's not a number

			throw SQLError.createSQLException(
							+ val //$NON-NLS-1$
							+ Messages.getString("ResultSet.___in_column__201")
							+ columnIndex, SQLError.SQL_STATE_ILLEGAL_ARGUMENT, getExceptionInterceptor()); //$NON-NLS-1$

 All issues will be imported, but importer plugin is very raw. It doesn't maps custom things

Hi Dmitry,

It seems that JIRA Importer plugin is trying to retrieve a float value, but instead the value on BugZilla is not a valid one.

Please raise a support case at https://support.atlassian.com because we're gonna need to take a look at your logs.

In the support case you create, please attach the following:

* Enable your SQL Logging

** You can do this via Administration > System > Troubleshooting and Support > Logging & Profiling (tab). Then enable the SQL log and then the SQL dump log. Make sure that both are enabled.

Once you have enabled the extra SQL Logging, replicate the problem and attach the following files to this ticket:
* The entirety of your latest [JIRA logs|] ({{$JIRA_HOME/log/atlassian-jira.log}}) and your application server log files:
** *UNIX:* {{$JIRA_INSTALL/logs/catalina.out}}
** *Windows:* {{$JIRA_INSTALL/logs/stdout}} and {{stderr}}

Also, please let us know which version of BugZilla you are using, which version of MySQL and driver, and the version of the JIRA Importers Plugin as well.
