Import or update tickets in batch from an Excel or CSV file into Trac
This plugin lets you import into Trac a series of tickets from an CSV file or (if the xlrd library in installed) from an Excel file.
You can also use it to modify tickets in batch, by saving a report as CSV, editing the CSV file, and reimporting the tickets.
This plugin is very useful when starting a new project: you can import a list of requirements that may have come from meeting notes, list of features, other ticketing systems... It's also great to review the tickets off-line, or to do massive changes to tickets.
For a machine-wide installation on Trac 0.10 or 0.11, run as root on your machine:
Warning: Clearsilver is currently required on Trac 0.11
For an installation for only one Trac instance (on Trac 0.10, requires the Admin plugin):
- Install using the Admin UI in Trac.
This plugin has been tested extensively on Trac 0.11, and a little on Trac 0.10. Please report any issue !
If you have any issues, create a new ticket.

Once you have enabled the plugin and given yourself IMPORT_EXECUTE permission, you will see a new Import tab in the main navigation. This tab contains a complete documentation on exactly how the import works, as well as a form to select the CSV or XLS file to upload:
Once you have uploaded it, a preview screen shows you what will be imported and let you confirm the import.
