we just imported a project to our JIRA v6.3.11 and we shockingly realized that 2 custom field values were not imported. It's mysterious because bot fields are enabled for the project and the appropriate screens and the project import report screen put ticks nest to the custom fields. We checked the import xml and both fields are there with values!!
Anyway, we'd avoid the re-import because it's a really big project. Is there a way to add these custom field values by a script? Jelly or groovy? Or in SQL? We have the list of issues with the field values in a different JIRA and the projectID, issuekeys did not change.
Can you please advise?
You can re-import the list - if the lines have the current issue number in them, then the fields will be imported as changes. But you'll need to work out why they were ignored the first time.
Scripts can do it, including groovy. Jelly is deprecated, so I'd avoid that, and the standard rule for SQL is "don't". Just don't bother with SQL, it's harder than you think it is and can completely trash your system.
Or use bulk edit, if the data is simple enough
