How do I bulk load Stories with multiple Acceptance Criteria?

What is the format in which I need to create a CSV file to bulk load User Stories with Multiple Acceptance Criteria 


Sample CSV File

EpicLink,Issue Type,Summary,Description,Team,AC1
XXXX-9,10001,Test Summary,Test Description,"Team 1","Test Acceptance Criteria 1"

Hello @Sumant Panda,

Can you tell us what is "Acceptance Criteria"? Please share a screenshot.



Hello Jack, I am trying to bulk load stories which will have multiple acceptance criteria

Alright, I think you are using Checklist for Jira app.

Hi @Sumant Panda ,

It indeed seems to be Checklist for Jira but that seems to either be server or Data Center, not cloud.

CSV import is available starting with v5.1 and here's the format that need to be followed:



Hi @Yves Riel _Okapya_ ,

This does not work.

Data Used: 

Epic Id,Issue Type,Summary,Description,Team,AC1
ARTDL-9,10001,Test Summary,Test Description,"Team 1", "{""name"":""Item to import""}"

Hi @Sumant Panda ,

As mentioned above, the CSV import only works starting checklist v5.1. Did you update the app? Your screenshot shows version 4.x.


@Yves Riel _Okapya_ I will check tomorrow morning with the administrator and get back to you
