    Hi Rajnish,

    I think your best option is to use the Jira connector that we provide.  There's a bit of a setup process involved with it, but the nice thing is that once it is all set up, you can continue to work in Jira and have it continuously import the date into Rally to give you a smooth migration plan.

    You can find the documentation on this here: https://techdocs.broadcom.com/us/en/ca-enterprise-software/agile-development-and-management/rally-platform-ca-agile-central/rally/integrating-top/connectors/c-defect-management/c-atlassian-jira/c-jira-installation-user-guide.html

    Let us know if you have any questions!

    Hi Dave,

    thanks for the reply, we are not using Jira anymore, we moved to rally more than a year ago. I think the Jira connector will only work when you continue to work on Jira for some time, Is there any other way to migrate old data from Jira to rally, or do you think we can still use that connector even if we are not using Jira anymore??

    Hi Rajnish,

    I just replied to you also privately in case you'd like for us to meet to discuss this. In general, you can use the connector also as a mean for a one-time migration. It should still be able to read your Jira items (even if old) and sync with Rally. However, you can also consider exporting your Jira items to CSV files and use our Rally Excel add-in to upload them to Rally. The advantage of the second option is that you don't need to install the connector, but you will need to do some manual work to adjust these CSV files so they can be uploaded to Rally.

    I'll be happy to meet with you to discuss further if you'd like. I replied to you privately with my email address.
