Import from JIRA

ScrumDesk supports the import of files exported from JIRA in XML format. Issues can be exported in the JIRA Issue view where it is possible to save them in the All fields XML files.

Before the import

In order to import data from JIRA, the input must be in XML format with data that fulfill the following preconditions:

  1. The target ScrumDesk project must be empty. No backlog items, releases, sprints, or epics.
  2. Imported data must be from one JIRA project only. If there will be more projects imported at once, the import will fail.
  3. Users written in exported JIRA XML must be replaced with ScrumDesk accounts manually before the file is imported.
  4. We suggest importing non-completed releases and sprints only. They will be imported into ScrumDesk however due to missing dates in JIRA exported file the dates will not be set and have to be set manually in ScrumDesk.
  5. All releases and sprints will be marked as PLANNED as the iteration status is not included in the exported JIRA XML file.
