Can JIRA's CSV importer handle checkbox custom field


I have a few custom fields that are of type "multiple checkbox".

What should be the value in the column of the CSV input file if one of the fields is implemented as a single checkbox (i.e., without a label)?

Thank you

Yes it can.

As an example you have a multiple checkbox field named Field1 with only one option (value Option1) then the column in your import csv would be Field1 and you have no value (unchecked) or the value Option1


if you have a multiple checkbox field (Field2) with two options (Option1 and Option2) a useful csv would look like this:

id,summary,Field2, Field2
