Migrating from Gitlab does not include files in Issues

The gitlab migration does not include the files that are uploaded in gitlab-issues. The links are converted, but the files itselfes are not transfered.

I checked some of the scripts done by other people but found none that will do that.

Because both, gitlab and gitea hide the files behind some cryptic foldernames a manual copy is not feasible.
I think technically this should be absolutely possible, because the files are accessible.

How can this be solved? Would this be an opportunity for paid support ?

cheers

It should be possible to do via the API with an admin account using the sudo feature alongside the create issue attachment endpoint if you want to do it in-house.

I know Gitea Ltd. has supported Blender’s transition from Phabricator to Gitea, so I think they would be willing to assist you. You can contact @techknowlogick via email techknowlogick@gitea.io for more information about paid support.
