jira2youtrack.py fails with "Project [ TFJ ] not found."

I'm trying to import existing JIRA issues to YouTrack inCloud.

JIRA 6.0
YouTrack inCloud
latest Python Client Library
The import script fails with "404: Not Found: Project [ TFJ ] not found.". But actually project "TFJ" exists.
Is JIRA 6.0 supported by the client library?

Hi Yusuke,

After it was handled in email thread, I'll repeat it here.
Please, create another user with full admin permissions in YouTrack ad log in with that user during the import process. Currently, your JetBrains Account login matches already existed user in YouTrack.

Let us know, if have any further questions.

Sorry for not responding earlier.

I managed to migrate all JIRA issues to YouTrack with your advice!
