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.

Using Trello to manage events

As a Jira power user, I was at first doubtful that Trello could benefit my workflow. Jira already uses boards (ones you can customize!), so why would I even need to use Trello?! In this post you will...
