issue regarding import through CLI plugin


I am trying to import issue through CSV import using CLI plugin. I used the command:

atlassian jira --action runFromCsv --file importLink.csv --propertyFile --common "--project SWDEV" --continue

But it is not working. Can anyone please suggest how I can make it working.

Just from the top of my head, try this. Note: I've not tested, but let me know if it works for you. Please run it in a test environment first. All the best. 

-a runFromCSV --file "yourissuelistfile.csv" --common "-a runFromList" --server "yourjiraurl" --user "youradminusername" --password "youradminpassword"


Note: you should probably add the project too like --project "YOURPROJECT" as well, sorry missed this part



Thanks for the suggestions. I tried it & got the below error:

Client error: File not found: D:\Atlassian\JIRA\cli-ui\importLink.csv


Do I need to keep the file in the mentioned location in server or putting the file in my local system would be enough.

I kept in my local & it did not work.


Another question I have, will this feature work only for users who have Admin access.




That file needs to be in that directory of your JIRA server. As for admin access, I prefer to use the admin account so I won't miss out on any issues with permission restrictions that normal user accounts will usually have, so it depends on what you want and your JIRA instance project setup 

Hi ,  were you able to resolve the issue ? 

Also can you please share the sample code for running the above commands. 

Do we need to have JIRA SDK in the JIRA host server to run the above commands or JDK is enough.

Thanks ,

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 ...
