How can I load list of components to a new project?

I the previous Jira version there was an ability to load a list of components with their properties from a CSV file into new Jira project.


On this Jira version I can find an ability to add only 1 single component at a time.


Can someone assist?

Hello @Masha Givon

Please see here, from the official docs as to how you can import components from CSV file in an project

When I follow Option 1 in that doc, I get errors that the component I'm trying to import " doesn't exist in this project and can't be added".

If I create a component manually (one at a time), then do an issue import using that same component, I have no failures.  So it appears you need a match for the import to work.

Hi Kimberly,

I'm getting the same issue trying to import new components into Jira. How did you fix this? It's unclear to me what you did from your answer. Thanks so much!


Wow, that was a while ago.  If I remember correctly, I had to make sure all my components were setup in my project first (and they have to exactly match [spelling & upper/lower case, etc.] the components you are trying to import).  Then do your import.

That import hasn't worked for me either.  It will load the issue, but not the components.  The warning is: 

  • The component "XXXXXXX" doesn't exist in this project and can't be added
