Jira 7.4 - Can't update Issue Created Date via CSV Import

I tried following this approach:


However, when I go to map the 'created' field of my CSV to a JIRA field, 'Date Created' is not an option. Any idea how to make it an available field?

Hi Adam,


Just tried it on 7.4 and you have the option to import created only when importing from the admin wizard ("external system import" tool). User wizard in Issues menu won't allow you to overwrite created date.

Hope this helps!
