CSV import Epics linked to Initiative


we are using Jira Server and Plans. 

Importing Epics with issues and their subtasks works as intended. But linking epics to an Initiative does not.

Parent Link is set to the new issue ID provided in the csv import file:

  • Cannot add value [ [1] ] to CustomField Parent Link in Issue with summary 'Phase 1' could not be found

How can Epics be linked as a child issue to initiatives while using external system import via csv?

Hi @jbeg 

As far as I know, you can't do this in one file for Parent Linked issues.

You'll need to:

  • Upload the Initiatives first
  • Import the Epics, populating a Parent Link column with the previously created Initiative Issue Keys


I've tried this way but in the plans they remains unrelated (not connected as child)

I've to move them manually under the initiative and this works.

Any clue?

Hi @mpietro40 

Could you provide a step-by-step guide of how you did it?

Screenshots would be very beneficial here :)
