    Curious how youtrack translates redmine sub-(sub-sub-sub..etc…)-projects into youtrack.

    Currently this is something holding us up making the jump. Cannot find any sub- project support in YouTrack

    • Olga Kosyreva says:

      Hello Moranoa, thank you for reaching us out. In YouTrack there no sub-projects. Redmine sub-(sub-…)-projects will be translated into separated YouTrack projects named “parent / sub1 / sub2 …”.

    can you please leave an example with example URLS of the command needed to import redmine?

    I followed the instructions but am having no luck:

    sudo python -a myapikey myyoutrackusername myyoutrackpassword myredmineproject

    but I am getting the error:
    File “”, line 101, in __init__
    self._target = youtrack.connection.Connection(y_url, y_user, y_pass)
    File “/home/myusername/youtrack-rest-python-library/python/youtrack/”, line 51, in __init__
    File “/home/fire/youtrack-rest-python-library/python/youtrack/”, line 61, in _login
    raise youtrack.YouTrackException(‘/user/login’, response, content)

    I have resolved the issue,

    Here is an example import command when importing issues from the Redmine issue tracker:

    sudo python -a yourRedmineAPIKey root yourYoutrackPassord yourRedmineProjectName

    I hope this helps!
