The CSV import appears to round Original Estimates down to nearest hour

I'm trying to import some tasks using CSV file import. I want to set original estimate which I understand is in seconds, but it seems to only allow a granularity of 1 hour. Is there any way around that please?

I'll paste my data and configuration below.

When I import the data I get 5 tasks created, only 2 of which have estimates. Test3600 gets an estimate of 1 hour. Test5400 also gets an estimate of 1 hour. It appears to be dividing by 1800 and then rounding down.

Please could you confirm if that is the case and advise on a workaround?

Many thanks



This is my data...



Here's my configuration...

"config.version" : "2.0",
"config.project.from.csv" : "false",
"config.encoding" : "UTF-8",
"" : "@",
"config.field.mappings" : {
"Estimate" : {
"jira.field" : "timeoriginalestimate"
"Summary" : {
"jira.field" : "summary"
"config.value.mappings" : {
"config.delimiter" : ",",
"config.project" : {
"project.type" : null,
"project.key" : "blanked out",
"project.description" : null,
"project.url" : null,
"" : "blanked out",
"project.lead" : "blanked out"
"" : "dd/MMM/yy h:mm a"

I have the same problem. I can't figure out how to import minutes... For example I have a task that takes 5,5h. I converted it to "5,5 x 3600" = 19800 but it imports to 5h.

Also, I tried 360000 and it imported to 100h. How can I import so it imports as days instead of hours?

Unfortunately this is caused by a BUG. Please check the bug record below and mark yourself as a watcher in order to receive further updates about its implementation date.

How to manage many similar workflows?

I have multiple projects that use variations of the same base workflow. The variations depend on the requirements of the project or issue type. The variations mostly come in the form of new statuses ...
