CSV Upload (Importing)

Hi all,


I am looking to import a bulk of information into JIRA however, I am a visual person and wondered if anyone has a screen shot of how you created the fields within excel?

Thank you :)

Hi @Cougar1907,

Welcome to the Atlassian Community.

So the CSV file should look something like this:

Ignore the headline, the Issue key and Issue id columns, those are just from the export of my existing project.

The first row should contain the field names that you are importing. Then each row after that is the issue you are importing.
