Concatenate or append at CSV Import



is it possible someway to concatenate or append values into fields during CSV import?


Example 1:


KEY-123;My summary;This is a description;And I would like;to append this into the same field without overwriting


Example 2:


KEY-123;My summary;This is a description;And I would append this to description


My question is if Jira can handle it in someway?

I have splitted cells in excel that exceeds 32767 bytes and I want them in the same fields in Jira, like the above examples.


Thanks in advance :)

No, the import is a simple "replace the data in the field" implementation, a flat "edit" action. 

You'd need to export the current data and concatenate your new data into the field before importing it back.

Thanks, that confirms what I suspected.
