JIRA to TFS 2010 migration

    General discussion

  • 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.

  • Hello mvkram,

    I am trying to involve someone familiar with this topic to further look at this issue.

  • Did you find any more information about this?  This thread has some information, but I don't know if it's the latest.

  • yes, I was able to finish this task... the only way to get the attachments and links, in my case, was to utilize the sdk.

  • Agreed.  We ended up writing our own migration, too.

  • Hi,

    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!

  • Hi mvkram

    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.
