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)
