This question is in reference to Atlassian Documentation: Importing data from CSV
How can I define Issue ID and Parent ID before CSV import procedure to avoid cases with duplicating of issues?
I mean case when you are trying to upload issue with Issue Id which already exists in JIRA.
No, sorry, I think you're misunderstanding what the importer will do.
Let's say that the important fields in here are
If a record has no issue-id or parent-id, the importer has no information about existing data, so it will try to create a new record
If a record has an issue-id, then the importer will check to see if it can find that ID in the target system. If it can, then the data must be an update of fields. If it can not, then it has no information and has to assume this is a new issue
If a record has a parent-id, then the system will do the same as above, but working on the assumption that the data is for a sub-task instead
Thank you, Nic.
So if I would like to import several tasks with sub-tasks inside and I would like to avoid case when existed data will be updated because of existed Issue Id will be defined in CSV file. How can I proceed with this? I have to enter Issue ID and Parent ID to CSV file for link between sub-tasks and parent tasks. But I don't know whether entered Issue ID is unique.
I've already read that topic.
Thank you for your help, Nic.
Probably I am not accurate with my questions.
I am trying to import new Task(with sub-tasks) from CSV to existed JIRA Project.
So what Issue ID and Parent ID should I enter to CSV file?
Can I verify somehow which Issue ID and Parent ID are already used?
