Does Jira allow CSV imports for time tracking?


I know you can use CSV imports in Jira to mass-create issues. However, I want to also attach logged time to the Jira issue as well. Is that possible through CSV import?

Atlassian Support recommended that I post this quetsion to the community as they have no documentation on it. Thank you!

Yes, it is possible. Just add a "Time Spent" column to your CSV and ensure the value you add is in seconds. :)

(BTW also works with fields such as Original and Remaining Estimates, again just add columns and enter values as seconds.)

Oops, sorry, you're too fast for me Nat ;)


Not sure whether you are referring to time spent, but this feature is currently listed on the documentation:

Do let me know if I have miss-understood you.
