JIRA can import data from Mantis, an open-source PHP-based bug tracker. The Mantis import is almost identical to the Bugzilla importer (just expecting a different database format), so please refer to the Bugzilla documentation for a walkthrough.
Before you begin, please backup your JIRA data.
In addition to the Bugzilla importer's features, the Mantis importer also:
- Creates a custom field, "Mantis Link", containing a link to the old Mantis bug URL. This field can be hidden when no longer useful.
- Creates a custom field, "Mantis ID", containing the mantis bug ID (useful for searching)
- Creates and uses a custom "Not a bug" resolution type.
- Converts Mantis links (#1234) to JIRA links (TST-123) in text.
