How do you change the number of an issue?

I have a number of old issues on a repo. I switched to using Jira, because it is a wonderfully superior and more flexible issue manager, but my manager wants us all to use Gitlab. Now I need to bring at least my outstanding issues back over from Jira to Gitlab, but the issue numbering starts where I left off before.

How do I set the number of my first new Gitlab issue, to avoid screwing my numbering up?


unfortunately you cannot modify the issue number, this is a primary key in the background which is incremented automatically. For migrating your issues, I’d suggest using the Jira project importer and then filter by the applied label to do further bulk actions (assign yourself, change labels, etc.).
