CSV import and due date problem

Hi guys,

I try to import issue form csv into JIRA project.
The csv file in a simple text editor looks like


and I use the date format "d/MMM/yy" in CSV import wizard.

The following image is the system date picker format in JIRA.

After the validation progress in import wizard, I will get the message "The validation process has found 1 warning/s Unable to parse date: 02/Feb/12".

I can not import due date successfully.

My JIRA version is v6.4.2.

Do you have any idea?
Thanks for your suggestions.

May you try changing the value of the date format from "d/MMM/yy" to "dd/MMM/yy"?

Hi Ignacio,
I change the format to "dd/MMM/yy", but I still can't import due date successfully. So I change format to "Look and Feel" format like "yyyy/MM/dd" and upgrade the version of jira-importers-plugin from 6.3 to 7.1.8, it works for me now. Thank you!
