Error on the first record. What do I fix?
Check if anything was created, and if it was, edit it, to ensure it is mostly valid.
Then check the application log to see what the error was. <Jira home>/log/atlassian-jira.log

Nothing was imported. The log throws an error on the first record stating "unexpected error" and stops.
I am trying to import a CSV file into a next-gen project with a custom issue type and custom fields.
That's good, it means no harm done!
I don't think Next-gen projects support full CSV imports yet - you have to stick to the non-custom things that they arrive with when created.
Seems we will need to wait for the Next-Gen projects to gain more functionality.
Checking back 1 year later and it still seems like it is not working. I'm trying to upload an extremely simple CSV to test and getting the same error.

After troubleshooting this for a while, now I see this - it would be helpful if they didn't list next-gen projects in dropdown while selecting what projects to import CSV into.
