Export data from Rally to Jira

Are there any Atlassian or 3rd-party plugins/scripts for migrating data out of Rally into Jira OnDemand? This must be a very common action?

The only way I have seen is to export to a CSV, then do a mapping to Jira and use its importer. There has to be an easier way :)

I saw a couple of threads in the old forums, but no definitive answer.

Hi Graeme,

I'm afraid that CSV is the only option right now - as JIRA does not have such feature.

I've created this feature request https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/JRA-26235, please vote for the issue to raise its priority.


Hi Graeme,

Did you manage to migrate to OnDemand from Rally?

There is now a third-party tool available for this, the Enterprise Migration Utility.

Thank you Graeme.

Thanks everyone. We chose to do it with custom scripts in the end, and nimimized the amount of Rally information brought forward into JIRA. Great excuse for a project cleanup :)

I'd close this question if I could see any links to do that. I have no close or Accept Answer links.

Can you share the scripts?

Any updates? Can I use Rally to JIRA Connector to dump Rally data? 


We get this common request quite a bit and have written a migration kit. Take a look for more info. https://www.cprime.com/services/tools/atlassian/rally-to-jira-migration-kit/ Rally Off!


I found the following software running between Rally and JIRA. It's a 3rd party software, not developed by Atlassian.

"Configurator" to test the connection and the mapping scheme : https://help.rallydev.com/rally-integration-configurator

Actual connector, using the previously generated XML :Export data from Rally to Jira

Best regards.

Friday Fun: What's your favourite beer/drink

As a Belgian, beer-lover and home brewer, beer is one of my great passions. I love the fact that with just a few ingredients (usually just water, hop and malt) you can create so many different tastes...
