Dear support,

I am currently working on investigating ways to implement an automated 2-way syncing between issues of Bugzilla and Jira.

I found an extension for Bugzilla called "sync", but the link for this extension is currently broken: https://wiki.mozilla.org/Bugzilla:Addons#Bugzilla_Extensions. Is this extension still supported?
Also please advise me of better ways to do this sync. Is relying on Bugzilla's and Jira's REST APIs the best option here? Is dealing with Bugzilla's MySQL database directly a bad option?

I also found the Tasktop sync<https://www.tasktop.com/tasktop-sync> product already providing a similar thing: http://www.tasktop.com/integrations/bugzilla-sync

Thanks,
Youssef

That's handy; I just did this recently.

Hmm, yes, I suspect a lot of links on that page are broken. We should
fix that.

It was never "supported" - just because extensions are listed on that
page doesn't mean they are supported. It's listed there because it exists.

However, I still maintain Sync and am happy to provide you with a copy,
along with my Jira sync module. You'll need to adapt them for your
company, I'm sure.

Yes; yes.

Hi Gervase,

I'm trying to do the same: 2-way sync bugzilla <-> JIRA, and I would be very much interested in getting your sync add-on.

Thanks!

Hi,

Can I also get access to this tool? I'm interested in doing the same sync but the links in the post above are still broken.

Thanks in advance,
Nicolaie

Here's the "newer" repo:
https://github.com/bugzilla/extensions-Sync
but that's also five years old. But I still use this code in production
and it hasn't changed that much. If it doesn't work for you for some
reason I might be persuaded to do another code drop.
