I’d like to get some input on best practices migrating tickets from both Trac and Redmine to Gitlab. I assume there are some good tools out there but google wasn’t my friend trying to find them…
I did some quick tests successfully pulling one-by-one via the trac xml-rpc to gitlab’s issue api but I soon noticed two things making this impossible.
I couldn’t find a way to set the author in the issues and comments to the issue. All will end up as “me” or should I say the api-token I use for the API will explicitly set that user as the ref on each item I insert in Gitlabs issue tracker.
Updating the date & time doesn’t seem to be supported via the API, this results in all issues and comment history being listed as today’s date.
Any good workarounds to this?
