Subject AW: AW: How to get the attachments of old Adobe JIRA / imported Apache JIRA?
Date Mon, 24 Mar 2014 16:57:28 GMT
Well how about creating a too that uses the REST api to fetch the attachments from the Adobe
JIRA and to save them using their real names in directories matching the issue ID?

Something like this:

Essentially, every attachment is missing.  When Infra did the import of
the Flex issues, they had the attachments, but assumed that they could add
the attachments after import (which worked in prior versions of JIRA) and
then found out that wasn't true in the current version.

There is about 7GB of attachments and Infra does not want us to use REST
or SOAP to re-insert the attachments because that's a lot of data and
because there is no way to recover if we get it wrong.  Flex JIRA issues
are in the same database as all of the other Apache projects and shutting
them down to recover the Flex JIRA is not desirable.

The plan is that someday, I (or someone) will find time to write a utility
that renames the attachments to their proper names (JIRA just stores them
as "1", "2", "3", etc, no suffixes or other hints as to the content, the
name is determined from an XML file), and then Apache will post those
files somewhere.

Given that in two years we've only been asked for less than 10
attachments, it is low on my list of priorities.
