Cucumber import appears to ignore steps and examples

When importing JSON files generated by Cucumber I expected that the option autoCreateTestCases=true would not only create the test case object, but also create the steps in the case and match success for the outcome in the execution object(s). That does not happen. I could understand that for JUnit imports as steps are not available, but  Cucumber reports have steps and steps have outcomes. So I wonder why they are ignored.

As I am using Cucumber with scenario outlines and examples, I am even more surprised that an example does not match to an execution, but there is only one execution. So the mapping appears to be on the outline level.

Am I doing something wrong here or does it mean that the cucumber endpoint is not able to deal with steps and examples ( meaning that I would have to write my own importer ) ?

Thanks Katy.

I am clarifying how to pass the wall / gate of the support page.
( As I think, we should have corporate support here ... )
