CSV import comments, author, date

Is there a way to associate the comment author and date to the comment body using the CSV importer? If not is there a more efficient way to do this? Thanks.

Sure, there is please use following syntax for the comment columns: "01/01/2012 10:10;Admin; This comment works".

Remember that the data format must math the one set during the wizard.

I have prepared the CSV as mentioned above; however i am stuck at mapping. There is no 'comment' column in dropdown to map to (as shown in screenshot below).

So where do I import the comments?JIRA CSV Comment Import.png

@Sufian Rashid, I'm having the same issue, did you find a solution?

Hi @Kelly Albrecht

Yes i found the solution. Actually there are two imports.

One is 'Bulk Create CSV Import' and other is 'External CSV Import'

When i used the external import; i found all the missing fields there.

Please see below screenshots for more details.
