Append a new label to an existing list of labels of an existing issue via JIRA Importer CSV

hi

Is it possible to append a new label to the existing list of labels of an existing issue via External Import in JIRA.

E.g: I have an Issue ISS-1, with labels as "label1,label2". I want to append "label3" to this list via an import csv. My csv looks like below.

Issue Key, Issue Type, Summary, Label

ISS-1     , Story,  Foo Bar , label3

I notice that after import, ISS-3 only displays label3 as its label. Please let me know how can I append ?

You need a column for each label

 

Issue Key, Issue Type, Summary, Label, Label, Label

ISS-1         , Story,        Foo Bar ,  label1, label2, label3

Unfortunately JIM cannot append labels to existing JIRA issues. All labels are overwritten with the labels from CSV/JSON file.

If you'd like to add a label to an existing JIRA issue without wiping out the old ones you will need to use JIRA REST API or Bulk Edit.
