GitLab import not associating issues and other items
Even with an admin account, when doing a GitLab Import, items are not being associated correctly.
Steps to reproduce
- Export a GitLab project (from GitLab.com).
- Import the GitLab project tar.gz file (to GitLab.com).
- Check who is assigned to issues, merge requests, etc.
Discovered when infra did an import on behalf of customer: https://gitlab.com/gitlab-com/gl-infra/infrastructure/issues/6657#note_168188556 note on customer's export file: project_old.json is the original and project.json is a stripped username version; in case it's helpful customer has included their
import_export.yaml file (GitLab v11.2.8) in related ticket: https://gitlab.zendesk.com/agent/tickets/109965
Even comparing just the issues, things are obviously not being associated properly
Issues from the export (internal):

Output of checks
GitLab.com, GitLab Enterprise Edition 11.11.0-rc1-ee ; the customer import was done before rc1, and my example one was done after rc1
