I am looking to use LightHouse to track issues/tickets, but I get batches of tickets created inside an existing system somewhere else. I want to pull down batches of new tickets from that system, format them, and upload into Lighthouse.

Is there a way to do that?

    Depending on the system it could be there is code out there to import from that system into Lighthouse. In any case, if you have experience writing code, you can write something that imports those tickets using our API -

    Let us know if you have any questions.

    Thanks Nicole.
    I found this:

    Can you help explain to me how to "install" LighthouseAPI in order to use this code?

    David -

    Are you familiar with Ruby language? If you aren't we strongly suggest hiring someone who is to help you import. We aren't able to give the level of support required for 3rd party import tools/libraries.

    Hey David,

    What Nicole said, but, I might actually be able to help you. Can you give me a sample of the sort of data you'd want to import?

    Hi David,

    Just following up....if you were able to provide us with a sample of the sort of data you're looking to import, we may be able to help out.
