You will not be able to transfer attachments in CSV. Period.



Here is the process I would use.

1) set up a filter to collect all the issues you want to send to a new project.
2) Once you have them saved, go to the tools dropdown
3) you are going to do a bulk change
4) click on all those you want to choose, and click next
5) In step 2 of 4 choose the "move Issues" radio button. you can move them to a new project.
6) Follow the next simple steps.

this will get the job done for you.






@John Pfotzer how about importing into another Jira instance. My projects are not in one instance. They are in different servers.

First, CSV?  Probably the worst mechanism you could choose to do this...  Anyway.

For each source JIRA, you need to do as John says - get your issues into the same project first.  Then, export the system to XML.  Next, import that single project into a dev system.  Repeat that for each source JIRA.

Once you have all your issues in the dev system, export that, and then import the merged project into your target.
