YouTrack Migration JIRA -> YouTrack (Labels) / Configuration Setup Follow
I'm currently testing the migration of JIRA to YouTrack ... with a larger setup (which looks very promising so far).
Now there are coming up a couple of question:
1. We have defined a number of Labels in JIRA which looks like they are not migrated/converted?
Did I miss a point? Do I need to change the migration process somehow? Is it possible to migrate labels in some way?
2. Setup VCS Integration (Gitea)
I have a larger number of projects (40+) where I would like to setup the VCS integration but unfortunately I can only see that this setup can via the UI only? This would mean to do the setup 40 times+ ...
* Is there a way to do that via a configuration files which I can provide via Docker (from outside) etc. to make it easier and more reproducible the setup?
I've taken a look into the configuration files in youtrack/config but couldn't find something appropriate.

I'm Sergey from the YouTrack team. Thank you for your post.
As of now, only labels (tags) that are attached to the imported issues are created. All the other labels are not imported.
Unfortunately, there's no ready-to-use solution for this case. We have relevant feature requests that could help with the setup process, so please feel free to vote for them:
"As of now, only labels (tags) that are attached to the imported issues are created."
What does this mean exactly? I have plenty of tickets with labels, but their related tag doesn't exist in Youtrack at this time. Do I need to create the tag in YT in order for the import process to associate the label --> tag? I saw on this help center article that label import is not supported. Is that still the case now that the importer is no longer in beta?
It means that if there are labels assigned to an issue in Jira during the import, they are created and assigned to the corresponding YouTrack issue.
Please submit a support ticket and share examples of Jira and YouTrack issues.
This is related to labels in general, the import client only parses labels assigned to the imported issues, not all the labels you have in Jira.
