As a user, I'd like to import comments from Zephyr Test cases

Originated in my thread on community site: https://community.smartbear.com/t5/Zephyr-Scale-formerly-TM4J/Import-testcases-from-Zephyr-using-tm4j-file-converter-comments/td-p/212203?emcs_t=S2h8ZW1haWx8YWNjZXB0X2FzX3NvbHV0aW9uX3JlbWluZGVyfEtLR0tVMldNWDRHWTcxfDIxMjI3MHxPVEhFUlN8aEs

As organisation, we see great value in comments (due to the agile way we work with development of test cases) which hold on some of important facts / information that does not need to be presented to testers during test, but is important in design / review of the test case (separate process for test case development).

It's a shame we cannot migrate comments. Even though there is API for exporting it from Jira, we got a reply that there is no API for importing comments on test case.

Please notify us if this changes.

I think the best solution to this would be a combination of API and the iterative approach used in tm4j-attachment-migrator, working on comments in the same way as I believe it is possible to retrieve comments using JIRA API.

Alternatively iterating through Excel/CSV sheet (which we will use for backup)

    Thanks for raising this.

    I've set it to Gathering Interest so we can see if others have the same need.

    We'll actually be evaluating the migration of tests between Zephyr for Jira and Zephyr Scale, so we'll likely address this when we do.
