Export/Import from one youtrack server into another - agile boards missing

I am using the youtrack2youtrack python script to transfer the whole Youtrack project (just one project) from one server to another (since the existing server is shared with other projects, I don't have the admin access to the old server nor the "Backup" option).

The script did its job, after some issues, but it doesn't transfer any data about the Agile boards. Is there a way to fetch the boards setup as well?

Also, the sprints definitions would be great to have.

Thank you!

I'm afraid at the moment only issues, projects and corresponding users and custom fields can be transferred via youtrack2youtrack import. So agile boards, dashboards, reports, etc are not imported, unfortunately. 

For now, the only way to transfer these entities is to use REST API: https://www.jetbrains.com/help/youtrack/standalone/youtrack-rest-api-reference.html. Several examples and use cases on using it can be found here: https://www.jetbrains.com/help/youtrack/standalone/api-use-cases.html.

We have plans to improve the import functionality to make it transfer all entities including agile boards but I cannot provide any exact estimates for now. 
Hope it helps.

Thanks for the feedback, Anastasia. I'll check what can be done with the API.
