Question about migration


#1

We currently use an open source solution called IRM for our ticket system.
It uses a mysql database. Does anyone have any knowledge of migrating from
IRM to RT. Any info would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks

We use IRM for tickets only.

Bo,

I know of no ready-built programs (unfortunately). However, RT offers 

CLI which allows you to create/edit/show tickets in RT outside of the
WebUI. I have about 7k to 8k tickets I need to migrate from a home-grown
system in Oracle to our current RT (3.6.4) in Oracle. My plan is to
write some SQL code that will walk thru the “home-grown” DataBase and
for each ticket it finds, execute some embedded CLI to map that data and
create a new RT ticket. So, if you’re the kinda person that gets all
excited about writing new code and have any SQL and/or CLI experience,
I’d be more than happy to collaborate with you on this task.

Bo,

The RT Essentials book. That's where I am now. In fact, I tried to 

execute some CLI on my server (RT up and running) and when I keyed in a
command, it said command unknown. So I have to try and figure out THAT
first, then I can develop the code structure. If you dig into CLI and
find something, let me know. If I get this up and running, I’ll share
the code with everyone. Thanks.

Ken,

Unfortunatly, I have never coded SQL or CLI. I do understand most coding
structures though and am proficient in scripting languages like
python,awk,bash and a little perl. I know that I probably don’t have the
experience that one would like to assist in this task but would be happy
to help in any way and learn. Where is a good place to start to understand
the coding aspect of CLI and mysql? I
