We are starting a new issues-only repo for customer bug-tracking. Previously they reported issues by email and I entered them in our code repo issues, now we want to migrate these to the public issues repo so they can see them, without manually re-entering.
In nutshell what we want to do is:
For every issue X labelled ABC in Repo1:
- Create a new issue X’ in Repo2 using the title and original post (including images) from X
- Comments, Milestones, Assignees, Labels on X are not needed in X’
- We do need a reference between the two issues
- We don’t want to alter X e.g. close it, other than linking it to X’
It seems like if I was experienced with the APIs I could do this quite simply but I’m just not used to the API or Linux enough to be confident - and none of the tools I’ve found online offer the flexibility needed. Can someone offer me any advice on this?
