Importing Jira Projects into Zepel

The one click importer will help you move your projects out of Jira to test in Zepel, so you can get started right away. After your project is imported, you’ll see all your Jira issues as trackable items with assignees, due dates, statuses, and even comments right where they belong.

Switching to Zepel over Jira lets you work on your projects without bringing you or your team down with complexity or clutter.

How to import your Jira project into Zepel

  • Access the account settings popup from the menu bar on the top left corner.

Click on Account Settings in Zepel

  • Navigate to the Import tab in the account settings popup. Click on Import from JIRA button.

Click on Import from JIRA button

  • Enter your JIRA credentials to view your projects. You will need to create a token in JIRA and use that to access your JIRA projects. You can read about creating a token over here.

Note: You need to be a JIRA admin to access all your projects through the API.

  • Click on the checkboxes to select members you want to import and enter their email addresses.

  • Once you have selected and confirmed the projects you want to import, click the “Import” to start the import.

Importing JIRA projects

The import can take anywhere between a few seconds to a couple of hours based on the size of your Jira projects and the number of issues being imported.

You will get an email notification once the import is successful.

Any new team members on Jira (who are not in Zepel) will get added as new members and will be notified via email too.
