CSV bulk task import

MDaniels I'm New Here May 15, 2022

I'm using a csv format to upload 6 tasks and my files statistics: indicates that 6 issues/s will be created with warnings. 

Below this is a message: The validation process has found 2 warning/s: 

The value [xx}  can't be added to the custom field [epic link].

The value [xx] can't be found or is in the incorrect format

The warning is duplicated.

Is there a method to copying the epic link from Jira to paste into the CSV file?  That seems to be where the issues are. Thank

Hello @MDaniels 

Welcome to the community.

Does the Epic already exist in the project or is it being created during the same task import process? If it already exists, then the value for Epic Link in your CSV file should be the issue ID of the Epic - i.e. ABC-123.
