YouTrack Standalone 2017.4 Help

Migrate to YouTrack

YouTrack has a range of tools that you can use to migrate your data from other issue tracking systems to YouTrack. When you import your data from another tracker, you can pick up right where you left off in the previous application.

The topics in this section provide instructions for importing data from a number of different issue tracking systems. If the issue tracker that you were previously using is not listed here, import your issues from a CSV file.

YouTrack has a standard integration that lets you import entire projects from a Jira instance. To learn how to set up and use the integration, see Import from Jira.

This section of the documentation provides instructions for the following migration scenarios:
