Microsoft Project Importer for codeBeamer is an open source project to import tasks from Microsoft Project files (MPP) into codeBeamer issue trackers.


  • Importing data from Microsoft Project files:
    • Each task in MPP will generate a new issue in the target tracker.
    • The new issue properties will be set according to MSP task properties by hardcoded rules. (You can't define property mappings.)
    • Parent/child dependencies will be set according to MSP hierarchy.
    • One-by-one dependencies will be set according to MSP dependencies.
  • Importer will display a short statistics about imported data. something like: "53 imported, 1 skipped, 2 failed. Project URL: xxxx"

The importer is implemented as a commandline Java application.

It supports Codebeamer versions from 5.8 to 6.0 (others are not tested).
