Reading from file while creating new issue

Hello

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.

I'd start with reading the guide here which explains how to import issues from CSV:

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