Here’s how to import cases into FogBugz from a variety of other tools.
Note: Any importer is subject to the vagaries of the data it’s looking at. We have plenty of time to help you through the process of getting your info into FogBugz, so don’t hesitate to contact us.
Importing from Bugzilla
FogBugz 8 or later.
You should see a form that lets you point to your Bugzilla site and select which cases to import into FogBugz. Contact us if you run into any issues.
Importing from Excel
A user has posted a simple method of importing from an Excel spreadsheet using the XML API here.
Another user has written a small Windows app, CaseImporter, to import from Excel.
There is another Windows app here with source code on Google Code.
You can also try this older CSV import tool.
Importing from Mantis
The MantiBugz importer uses the FogBugz XML API, so can be used for either FogBugz On Demand or local installs.
Importing from Jira
Jira is another common tool which customers wish to import into FogBugz. Contact us for more information.
Importing from Trac
FogBugz has a Trac importer.
Importing from Other Tools
The FogBugz API is sufficiently powerful to use for exporting another bug tracker’s historical information into FogBugz. It has the advantage of not needing direct access to the database, so you can use FogBugz On Demand. If you’re thinking about doing this, we have friendly developers who can advise you on the process and who are very interested in what you’ve been using and how you’re moving forward. Shoot us an email and we’ll chat!
