Create Issues out of an Excel File that is attached to an E-Mail

Is there a way to create Issues out of an Excel File that is attached to an E-Mail? We know the CSV Import and we also know that issues can created via Mail.

You'd need to write some code to detect and parse the attachment

Hi Nic,

Thank you for your answer. I think you mean with scriptRunner Add-on. Do you have experience with this topic.or have a sample script for it?

I don't know if it could be done with the ScriptRunner.  I've done something similar, with an add-on that implemented a mail listener - if that found certain content in an email, then it parsed it for issue data.  I imagine you could do the same for an attachment rather than content (although I'd dread trying to read Excel files in code).
