Can't import CSV file - user does not exist

I'm a new Jira user and new to this type of software. However, I've successfully created a project board where issues populate from a CSV import and my team is using it.

I'm trying to import issues into another board with a set of users that is different from my working board. When validating the CSV file before importing, I'm getting a message that says the user in the field I'm mapping to the Jira Assignee field does not exist.  That user is me!  

I have checked every permission I can find, but can't figure out why this isn't working. Help!

Because this is a brand new world for me and I'm not a software developer, the most direct instructions you can give me to fix this will be greatly appreciated!error.png

And, if you are still having the issue, please consider submitting a new defect to Atlassian.


Best regards,
