We use to use the same template to upload Story and Sub-task, starting from week of Dec-25-2017, it doesn't work with error shown. Anyone has idea what happen?
First few columns in the upload template
|Issue Type||Issue key||Issue id||Parent id||Summary||Description|
|Issue Type||Issue key||Issue id||Parent id||Summary||Description||Request Type||Request by department||Assignee||Reporter||Priority||End Date||Due Date||Original Estimate||Component/s|
|Story||1||Summary-story||Story||NEW||MIS||jimlin||jimlin||Medium||16-Feb-18||16-Feb-18||432000||Configure Price Quote|
|Sub-task||1||Summary-subtask||Subtask||NEW||MIS||jimlin||jimlin||Medium||31-Dec-17||31-Dec-17||5184000||Configure Price Quote|
It's difficult to read that csv... What character are you setting as the column separator? I would suggest using a semicolon ; as the separator.
If the separator has not been properly set, maybe some values could be assigned to a wrong column, therefore causing errors because of apparent omissions.
Another possible cause might be related to the Component/s column, as the JIRA field supports multiple values. In case you would like to set more than one component at once, each of those components should be included into different columns, usually with the same name.
Finally, your screenshot shows a link with the text 'download a detailed log'; may you click on it and post that log here?
I'm running through the same error; My Issue ID and Parent ID columns are configured correctly (each subtasks' Parent ID being assigned to their Story Issue ID), and JIRA keepy saying "Fatal error during import: Parent Issue cannot be null".
Here is the extract of the Log of the detailed log discussed earlier:

It seems there's a bug in the non-admin "Import issues from CSV" when there are too many subtasks associated to the same parent:
The workaround is using the CSV import from the "External System Import" i n the Admin area, accessible from this URL:
Hope it helps.
Thanks @Ignacio Pulgar [Tecnofor] , the workaround worked.
However, I get the error regardless of how many tasks I am trying to import, if I only import epics, it works, but as soons as I add stories and subtasks, it fails.
Lukily I have access to the admin area, but it's far from a nice solution.
Hoping Atlassian will fix this soon.
