Importing data from Rally

Unfortunately, right now we don't have a built-in JIRA importer for data from Rally. But it is still possible to perform a two-stage import using Rally's CSV export mechanisms.

How to export data from Rally into a CSV file

It's possible to export data from Rally into CSV or XML files. However, CSV files are more reliable and we recommend them for the purpose of the migration.

In order to create a CSV file, go to the Rally's summary page and from the "actions" menu select the "CSV" option. Save the resulting file. This kind of export will only contain the data visible on the summary page. If you want to export all data you need to create a custom view first. Refer to Rally's documentation for help.

How to import CSV data back to JIRA

If you want to create issues as well as projects, users, etc. please refer to our CSV importer help. If you don't have administrative privileges in JIRA, you can also import CSV data into a single project through the user CSV importer, if enabled. In both cases, the importer wizards will guide you through the steps of mapping fields and values and validating the data before the import.

If you are looking for an easier solution

The import through CSV has some limitations. If the results aren't satisfactory, there are complete third party solutions available which might help you. Please check out the following solutions from Atlassian Marketplace:
