How can I import projects in JIRA through csv, similar to the way of importing issues? Edited

I have created a Project Template named "Vendors". User can create a new project using this template. There are various issue types under it to capture all the details of the Vendor.

While the user can create a project through the template, currently there are around 2000 such Vendor data in excel which needs to be imported in JIRA. Hence, I need a way in which I can import the project creation data as below. Once the project is created in the system, I know the way to import the issues. Need help of creating projects in bulk.

Project Name

Project Key (this will be a code from ERP system, hence will be unique)

You can use Jira Rest API and can create projects in bulk .


If you want to create using some defined project template, then here is the hidden rest call which will help you to accomplish your task.


path: /rest/project-templates/1.0/createshared/<sharedprojectId>


{"key":"PROJ1","name":"Shared Project1","lead":"user1",description:"new project"}
