I have used Super CSV to read data but in confluence.

Should work in Jira too

Also it is good idea to run dos2unix if you have it in Linux to fix format and encoding.


// Misc manipulations
import java.nio.charset.StandardCharsets

// CSV Imports -
import org.supercsv.prefs.CsvPreference
import org.supercsv.cellprocessor.CellProcessorAdaptor
import org.supercsv.cellprocessor.ift.CellProcessor
import org.supercsv.cellprocessor.Optional

def csvFile="/some/path/csvFile.csv"
// as in
CsvPreference PIPE_DELIMITED = new CsvPreference.Builder('"', '|', "\n").build()

def mapReader = new CsvMapReader(new InputStreamReader(new FileInputStream(localFilePath), StandardCharsets.UTF_8), PIPE_DELIMITED)

def header = mapReader.getHeader(true)

while ( (issuesMap = != null ) {

def issueKey = issuesMap."issue_key" def cfValue = issuesMap."custom_filed_value"
// Rest is to find issue by Key in Jira and use mutable Issue and CF Manager to set CF value
