The bug records do import from Bugzilla but the link data between bugs (Depends on / Blocks) is not replicated in Jira so we loose all our bug relationships.

Hi Henry,

I think it may be related to data corruption into Bugzilla database. You may check if this is the case using a tool called Sanity Check within Bugzilla Administration section.

Hi Tiago,

thanks for the reply, i've run a sanity check and it came back clean.

thanks,

nick
