Importing Issues from Jira
To import issues from an existing Jira 5.x server:
- Download the latest version of YouTrack's Python Client Library and unzip it.
- Install Python.
- Take a look at the
_init_.pyfile located in the
<unzipped library directory>\python\jiradirectory. This mapping file defines correspondence between source fields in Jira project and the type of YouTrack issue's attributes, to which these fields should be converted. In general, this default mapping file is enough for the import, however if you feel the default mapping is not sufficient for your particular usecase, you may edit it. For more details about structure of the library, please to the Python Client Library
