I've been through some other forum posts but cannot get this to work.
I want to update the Original, remaining and time spent fields in some issues within as existing project. I take the following steps but cannot get it to update:
"7 of 7 issues have been skipped because they already exist in destination project"
I am able to create new issues just not update existing ones.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.
@Celine Penaredondo a few questions,
This would help me ascertain what the issue could potentially be.
Hi @Ismael Jimoh , A little background on this issue. (just in case someone is experiencing this as well)
I created a workflow that does not have a Transition Post Function on Resolution. What happened was the issue was "Resolved" but the Resolution is "Unresolved", this issue also does not have Resolved Date.
I agree with your comment. I forgot to put a Resolution -> "DONE" to my CSV.
Resolution Column is a must.
I was able to update it. :)
Hello @Louise Simmonds
1. Issues can be updated only through the External System Import/CSV function available to JIRA Admins through the Settings > System menu. If you try to use the "Import issues from CSV" function available on the Issue Search screen under the ellipses button, that feature does not support updating existing issues.
2. You must include the Summary field in your issue mapping also.
3. I think Time Spent is not a fixed field that can be updated directly in an issue. I believe it is a calculated field based on a summation of Work Logged.
2 - just a header, do not actually insert values, because you could end up overwriting summaries due to character encoding, to be perfectly clear to update issues from csv, the .csv must contain Issue Key column, with the right issue keys, and an empty Summary column, because Jira just requires this for mapping but if you leave empty values in .csv it will effectively ignore it, it's just in there to get around the required field
3 - last I remember I was able to import Time Spent from .csv
