Atlassian Bundle External System Importer Code into Separate Plugin
Atlassian announce beta release of new JIRA Importers Plugin.
Atlassian have extracted the code from the external system importer, into a beta release of the new JIRA Importers Plugin. This means that the release of new importer updates is no longer dependent on a JIRA release. Previously, compatibility issues of new releases of tools such as Bugzilla and mantis were only addressed in subsequent releases of JIRA. With this beta release, users can import Bugzilla bugs into JIRA, with Bugzilla versions ranging from 2.20 to 3.6.3 supported. Users can import information including Work History, Big File attachments and disabled user accounts. In upcoming releases, the team will be addressing the Mantis, Fogbugz and CSV importers.
