When trying to import a project from an XML dump, we receive the following error:
There was a problem parsing the backup XML file at /home/jira/atlassian/jira-home/import/one.zip: A Group in the backup file is missing the groupName parameter.
Both the source and target instances are using v5.0.3#729
Found the problem! Open up the zip file, and edit entities.xml then search for groupName. In my case, I have a blank group name like below:
<Group id="10000" groupName="" lowerGroupName="" active="1" local="0" createdDate="2014-03-03 11:42:29.0" updatedDate="2014-03-03 11:42:29.0" description="" type="GROUP" directoryId="1"/>
Add values to groupName and lowerGroupName (eg. "unused"), create "unused" group in JIRA, and import the project
