MS Project importer for Jira is now fully integrated into WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira. Development discontinued

Overview

MS Project importer for Jira (“the product”) was originally developed as a stand-alone accessory for WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira. Its functions have now been fully incorporated into WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira. This page gives users of the product more information on its integration and the details of its development.

Details

1. Integration of the functions of the product into WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira

When WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira 9.4.0 was released on February 21, 2018, we integrated the relevant functions of the product into WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira. For more details on this, please refer to the WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira 9.4 release notes.

If you are using WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira Version 9.4 or later

Your version of WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira already includes a function for importing tasks in MS Project files into Jira (equivalent to the product). This means you can now stop using the product and just use WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira for importing files.

For details on the import function, see Importing from Microsoft Project.

If you are using WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira Version 9.3 or earlier and can upgrade to Version 9.4 or later

To import tasks in MS Project into Jira just using WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira, you should upgrade to WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira 9.4 or later.

For information on how to update WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira, please refer to the Guide for installing and upgrading WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira.

For details on the import function, see Importing from Microsoft Project.

If you are using WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira Version 9.3 or earlier and cannot upgrade to Version 9.4 or later

If you’re using WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira 9.3 or earlier, and you’re unable to upgrade to WBS Gantt-Chart 9.4 or later, you won’t be able to use WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira’s MS Project import function. You should keep using this product.

The product is only compatible with Jira 7.10 or earlier. If you want it to be compatible with Jira 7.11, you may want to send us an “Update Request.” However, we will not be updating this product further in the future.

You need to use this product with WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira. However, WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira Version 9.3 only supports Jira 7.5 or earlier. Therefore even if the product is compatible with higher versions of Jira, you won’t be able to use it with Version 9.3.

2. Discontinuing development of MS Project importer for Jira

We are discontinuing further development of this product on August 23, 2018. Its functionality is now integrated with WBS Gantt-Chart for Jira, so it does not need to be compatible with Jira 7.11 or later.
