I need to import data from a CSV file into a project. One import field is the description field which can contain carriage return and line feed, but this will break the import.
I thought of replacing the CR+LF with a some text token like <<CRLF>> and then replacing it after the import using direct SQL on the database.
Is there some better way? Surely this is a common problem?
Came here to find a solution to the same problem that tilmann.brenk mentions above in OP, but the first link in Bob Swift's answer does not take me to "import jira issues" information. Can anyone provide an update? What is the trick to importing descriptions in a CSV file that have line breaks and would like for them to be imported as line breaks in JIRA description field? Thanks
