Importing from Rocketlane

Follow the steps below to import from Rocketlane:

  1. Go to Settings > Imports and click Start Import or Import.
  2. Create a new connection to your Rocketlane account, or use an existing connection if you already have one.
  3. Once the connection is established, select the Rocketlane workspace you want to import and specify the DevRev part where the imported tickets should be created. This initiates a bulk import of the selected workspace.
  4. DevRev makes an effort to automatically map the fields from Rocketlane to corresponding fields in DevRev. However, you may be prompted to manually map certain fields if needed.

The duration of the import depends on the size of the Rocketlane account. It can take seconds for an account with only a few tickets to a few hours for an account with tens of thousands of tickets with many attachments. DevRev honors the Rocketlane API rate limits and back-off and resume automatically.

Post import options

After a successful import, you have the following options available for the imported project:

  • Sync to DevRev
    • This option allows you to synchronize any modifications made in Rocketlane with the corresponding items previously imported into DevRev. It also creates new items in DevRev for any new organizations created in Rocketlane after the last sync or import.
  • Periodic Sync
    • By enabling this option, you can automatically sync new changes from Rocketlane to DevRev on a periodic basis. The default frequency is once an hour.
  • View Report
    • This option allows you to access detailed information about the initial import and any subsequent syncs performed.
  • Delete Import
    • If you wish to remove the import and all items that were imported from Rocketlane into DevRev, you can use this option.
  • Edit Connection
    • Use this option to change the connection used for any subsequent actions. It can be helpful if a connection becomes inactive or the user who established it is no longer available.

Historical imports

To view currently running and previous imports from various sources, including Rocketlane, go to Settings > Imports.

Sync to DevRev

After a successful import from a Rocketlane workspace, you can choose to sync the imported data with DevRev. This feature imports any new organizations and any changes made to previously imported items from Rocketlane.

To perform a one-time sync to DevRev, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings > Imports.
  2. Locate the previously imported project.
  3. Select the > ⇾ From Rocketlane to DevRev option.

Syncing DevRev with Rocketlane may override fields in previously imported items, even if they were modified in DevRev.

Periodic sync

After successfully importing from a Rocketlane account, you have the option to enable a periodic sync. This allows for automatic synchronization between Rocketlane and DevRev on a regular basis. By default, the sync occurs once an hour. The sync can be configured to be Sync to DevRev, Sync to Rocketlane or both.

To enable a periodic sync, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings > Imports.
  2. Locate the previously imported project.
  3. Select the > Start Periodic Sync option.

To disable a periodic sync, follow these steps:

  1. Go to Settings > Imports.
  2. Locate the previously imported project.
  3. Select the > Stop Periodic Sync option.

Delete import


This deletes any content created by the import, including accounts, users, works, and parts.

Users not created by the import but created under an Airdrop account will also be deleted as part of the account deletion.

An import and all the content it creates can be deleted from DevRev. This can be useful when running POCs or to change the recipe used during the import. Once an import has been deleted, all the content it created gets deleted, even if they were modified in DevRev. It's possible to import the project again after its deletion.

To delete and import all the content it created, go to Settings > Imports > Past Imports, find the previously imported project, and select ⇆ > Delete Import.
