I am using an Assets Object Type (say Buckets) with no unique keys. It contains objects for different departments of the company. Name is the name of the object, also I have a Department attribute.
Lets say I have 5 objects for Department Sales with names
My boss came to me and said man we need a second sales department, please copy all objects from first one.
I exported 5 objects to Excel, changed Department to New Sales
Word New Sales
Excel New Sales
Jira New Sales
Portal New Sales
ERP New Sales
I go to Import, perform Import and expect to see 10 objects - 2 Words, 2 Excels and so on.
However I see that Jira changed existing 5 objects by applying new department.
Is there a way to tell Jira not to modify existing objects on import, but to add new objects?
After asking I figured out that I can add an ID attribute to Buckets, add ID column to Excel, autofill it with A3=A2+1 formula, make it an identifier in Import, perform an import and then delete ID attribute from object type.
Looks like a workaround, but maybe Jira can do it an easier way?
