Migrate Issues From GitLab 6.5.1 to GitLab 8.9.2

Hello, a couple of years ago I installed GitLab 6.5.1. I have now created a new GitLab installation on a different machine. The GitLab installation I am using is 8.9.2. I am now manually moving the projects by getting them from the old version and pushing these to the new version.

I was wondering, for the issues, is there a way how I can pull these from GitLab 6.5.1 and push these to GitLab 8.9.2 in relation to the same projects?

I think using the API to gather issues for each project and then recreate them on the new instance would probably be the best way to go.

You can find the API documentation for that GitLab version here: https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/tree/v6.5.1/doc/api

Thanks Mark, that looks intresting. Did not know GitLab had that functionality. I’ll experiment with it and see what progress I can make.
