I am following the instructions found here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirakb/how-to-change-the-issue-creation-date-using-csv-import-779160699.html and the import field "Created Date" is not on the drop down list to be mapped and neither is the "Issue Key" and the "Summary" to be "Summary" but nothing that would match the first two.
Thanks. I had done several ways, from "All Issues" page three dots menu, the "Advanced Search" page three dots menu and also the "External Import" wasn't showing up under either of them, hence why I asked thinking I am missing something.
On this particular project it is not a huge deal but we have a list of issues that have been with us for a while now, we want to get them into Jira but we want them to reflect their real dates when they were created, rather than what day we sat down and put them into the system.
Wish they would make that easier by letting us just choose that during creation instead of having to resort to such a hacky way to do it, after all if it can be done this way, they can just make it more accessible too.
"External System Import" is an option available only to Jira Administrators. You will not find it under the Import Issues options available to non-adminstrator users.
