     3
     4To migrate issue tickets from other issue-tracking systems or perform housekeeping actions on tickets or simply synchronize different databases, there are some tools, plug-ins and scripts available, which let you import or update tickets into Trac.
     5
     6== !TicketImportPlugin ==
     7
     8[http://trac-hacks.org/wiki/TicketImportPlugin TicketImportPlugin]: this plug-in lets you import or update into Trac a series of tickets from a '''CSV file''' or (if the [http://pypi.python.org/pypi/xlrd xlrd library] is installed) from an '''Excel spreadsheet'''.
     9
     10== !ExportImportXlsPlugin ==
     11
     12[http://trac-hacks.org/wiki/ExportImportXlsPlugin ExportImportXlsPlugin]: this plug-in adds an admin panel for exporting and importing tickets via '''XLS file'''. Requires the python packages xlwt/rxld.
    213
    314== Bugzilla ==
    415
    5 Ticket data can be imported from Bugzilla using the [http://trac.edgewall.org/browser/trunk/contrib/bugzilla2trac.py bugzilla2trac.py] script, available in the contrib/ directory of the Trac distribution.
     16[http://trac-hacks.org/wiki/BugzillaIssueTrackingPlugin BugzillaIssueTrackingPlugin]: integrates Bugzilla issue data into Trac keeping TracLinks. Ticket data can be imported from Bugzilla using the [trac:browser:trunk/contrib/bugzilla2trac.py bugzilla2trac.py] script, available in the contrib/ directory of the Trac distribution.
    617
    718{{{
     
    2435
    2536Currently, the following data is imported from Bugzilla:
    26 
    2737  * bugs
    2838  * bug activity (field changes)
     
    3141
    3242The script provides a number of features to ease the conversion, such as:
    33 
    34   * PRODUCT_KEYWORDS:  Trac doesn't have the concept of products, so the script provides the ability to attach a ticket keyword instead.
    35 
    36   * IGNORE_COMMENTS:  Don't import Bugzilla comments that match a certain regexp.
    37 
    38   * STATUS_KEYWORDS:  Attach ticket keywords for the Bugzilla statuses not available in Trac.  By default, the 'VERIFIED' and 'RELEASED' Bugzilla statuses are translated into Trac keywords.
     43  * PRODUCT_KEYWORDS: Trac has no concept of products, so the script provides the ability to attach a ticket keyword instead.
     44  * IGNORE_COMMENTS: Don't import Bugzilla comments that match a certain regexp.
     45  * STATUS_KEYWORDS: Attach ticket keywords for the Bugzilla statuses not available in Trac. By default, the 'VERIFIED' and 'RELEASED' Bugzilla statuses are translated into Trac keywords.

     56The adequate milestone for valid bugzilla2trac issue is usually ''Not applicable'', which means that fixes to the contributed script are not planned for a particular Trac release, but can happen anytime.

    81 
    82 The [http://trac-hacks.org/wiki/JiraToTracIntegration Jira2Trac plugin] provides you with tools to import Atlassian Jira backup files into Trac.
    83 
    84 The plugin consists of a Python 3.1 commandline tool that:
    85 
    86  - Parses the Jira backup XML file
    87  - Sends the imported Jira data and attachments to Trac using the [http://trac-hacks.org/wiki/XmlRpcPlugin XmlRpcPlugin]
    88  - Generates a htpasswd file containing the imported Jira users and their SHA-512 base64 encoded passwords
     83[http://trac-hacks.org/wiki/SfnToTracScript SfnToTracScript]: importer of !SourceForge's new backup file (originated from #Trac3521).
     84Also, ticket data can be imported from Sourceforge using the [trac:browser:trunk/contrib/sourceforge2trac.py sourceforge2trac.py] script, available in the contrib/ directory of the Trac distribution.

    9086== Other ==
    9187
    92 Since trac uses a SQL database to store the data, you can import from other systems by examining the database tables. Just go into [http://www.sqlite.org/sqlite.html sqlite] command line to look at the tables and import into them from your application.
     88Since Trac uses a SQL database to store the data, you can also custom-import from other systems by examining the database tables. Just go into [http://www.sqlite.org/sqlite.html sqlite] command line to look at the tables and import them from your application.

    94 === Using a comma delimited file - CSV ===
    95 See [http://trac.edgewall.org/attachment/wiki/TracSynchronize/csv2trac.2.py] for details.  This approach is particularly useful if one needs to enter a large number of tickets by hand. (note that the ticket type type field, (task etc...) is also needed for this script to work with more recent Trac releases)
    96 Comments on script: The script has an error on line 168, ('Ticket' needs to be 'ticket'). Also, the listed values for severity and priority are swapped.
     90=== Comma delimited file - CSV ===
     91See [trac:attachment:csv2trac.2.py:wiki:TracSynchronize csv2trac.2.py] for details. This approach is particularly useful if you need to enter a large number of tickets by hand. Note that the ticket type type field, (task etc...) is also needed for this script to work with more recent Trac releases.
     92Comments on script: The script has an error on line 168: 'Ticket' needs to be 'ticket'. Also, the listed values for severity and priority are swapped.

    98 === Using an Excel (.xls) or comma delimited file (.csv) ===
    99 This plugin http://trac-hacks.org/wiki/TicketImportPlugin lets you import into Trac a series of tickets from a CSV file or (if the xlrd library is installed) from an Excel file.
    100 
    101 You can also use it to modify tickets in batch, by saving a report as CSV, editing the CSV file, and re-importing the tickets.
    102 
    103 This plugin is very useful when starting a new project: you can import a list of requirements that may have come from meeting notes, list of features, other ticketing systems... It's also great to review the tickets off-line, or to do massive changes to tickets.
    104 
    105 Based on the ticket id (or, if no id exists, on the summary) in the imported file, tickets are either created or updated.
