for migrating from Jira to tfs 2010, I am planning to map the templates first and then import the data (workitems) using excel. Is there any better way for this ? I am more concerned about links and attachments ( attached directly to workitems) that are needed to be transfered as well. For attachments, there is only a couple of tables which get updated, but not sure whether i could directly dump the data into them .... Please advise.
If you have some code, app as a "starter for 10" that you could share that would be great, chances are that I wouldn't need to change that much to get it to work with our Jira Implementation!
Seems foolish to start from scratch if someone has already done most of the work!
A little late granted :) I recently had to migrate from Jira to TFS.
I ended up writing my own utility to do so. I felt this was a good candidate for 'open-sourcing' so have published it on GitHub here:
Utility handles all main and custom templates, links and attachments.
Hopefully this can be of use to other people in this situation.
Cheers - Ian.
