Reading from file while creating new issue


What's the way you would recommend to read a file while opening a new issue?

I have to read a XLS / CSV file and set some of the fields (when creating a new issue) according to values in this file


Thank you

You'll need to write code to put in a post-function, feed it the file to be read and parse it for the data to be imported.

Thanks but I'm not talking about one-time import but reading the file each time a user opens a new issue
