Jira CLI: addParticipants with runFromCsv doesn't let me set participants from CSV file

acli --action runFromCsv --file participants.csv --propertyFile participants.prop --common '-a addParticipants' --continue

I'm getting the dreaded:

Parameter error: This function requires a non-blank value for parameter participants.




field.request = request
field.participants = participants

So, if I specify --participants on the command line in the common section, it works fine, but of course, I'd have to generate a unique CSV for each participant I'm trying to add.

Does addParticipants support the participants parameter via CSV?

I'm on Cloud, FWIW. Thank you!

Hey @Amulya Akula _Appfire_ thank you. Can you please reattach screenshot-1.png? It didn't come through.

Or you could copy-paste what the contents of your runfromcsv.csv looked like.

And yes, I can see the ticket now. I guess if we resolve things here, I'll close it.
