Import comment field is missing


I am trying to import issues in to JIRA 6.4 and I cannot seem to find the comments field in the Map Fields dropdown. All other default and custom fields are available

How do I enable this field so its available when mapping?

Thank you.

if you are importing via CSV then in your column comments should be like this 

key | issueType | summary |description | comment |comment| comment | etc ......


This way you can map the comment CSV to Comments in JIRA and it will import all the comments .


Hi Abyakta,

You may have misunderstood me, the JIRA Comment field is not available on the Map Fields window.

Please see attached.
