Migrating TestTrack to JIRA

Posted by Tejus Parikh on August 5, 2009

In another long fought battle that eventually led to victory, we finally moved off TestTrack to JIRA Studio. Of course, now I got stuck with the task of figuring out how to get the open defects from one system to the other. Thankfully this ended up being somewhat un-painful. The Jira4R gem allows for easy creation of issues with just a few lines of Ruby. There are a few caveats to using this script. The documentation is almost non-existent and very out of date. It’s also not available on any standard gem repository.

In order to save another fellow developer the headaches I went through, I’ve published the source for my migration script on GitHub. It includes examples of how to use the Jira4r gem as well as installation instructions. Feel free to fork away and make it better!
