Import to different instance does not preserve issue and comment ownership


I’m migrating from a self-managed instance to another. I tried using the api and the web interface for that.

While the repository commits are properly matched to the appropraite users (based on the email address), the issues and comments are all shown as if I created them myself, with a note about the original owner.

I followed the documentation here:

I made sure to be an owner of the project and to be an administrator on the import side. The fact that commits arev properly matched shows that email addresses are the same on both sides.

Is this a bug or am I forgetting something ?



Replying to myself in case it can help anyone: I forgot that emails should be set to public. In order to prevent every users to have to do that I added the emails in the nbjson file which worked as expected.
