I'm trying to import a batch of my Issues into a project from a CSV file but the import keep not recognizing my custom field entries despite the fact that those specific fields exist and the entries are correct (i extracted those entries and copy-paste manually to be sure).
(This custom field is a list of possible entries on JIRA)
Do i need some kind of ID for each entry ? I would like to know how to set up my CSV file in order to make JIRA recognize my inputs correctly.
thanks in advance for your support
I wonder if there is some hidden character or space in there. Basically you need to ensure that the custom field value that is being imported exists already in your configuration. I do know that it times using Excel some characters can get in there unexpectedly. Maybe you could consider changing the value to something simple such as a single word and ensure that that is also in your list of possible values in the custom field. Then following a successful import change the value and all of the issues and the custom field. Sort of clunky but might help you get the job done. Even before this, within excel, you could try to use a find and replace to ensure that there are no hidden characters.
Unfortunately, I've checked and replaced all spaces by "_" but it does not seems to work either.
And as you can see on the first screenshot the single word "PreProd" did not work either
I don't know if it is somehow connected but this problem only appears on custom fields type select list (cascading) and select list (single choice).
Regarding your cascading entries are you using the following format as a separator between the level one and level two?
The '->' separator allows you to import the hierarchy.
The single select should not be a problem nor should the cascading. Maybe you could share one of the rose of your CSV that is failing here.
