Updating existing issues
From version 4.3 of JIRA Importers plugin you can update existing issues. Your CSV file needs to contain a column that during the import wizard is mapped to Issue Key. If an issue exists for a given key it will be updated.
I have tried this and there is no Issue Key to map to.
Hi, Thanks! Been looking everywhere for a resolution to this. My problem was using the "Import Issues from CSV" option from the issues drop down, this does not have the Issue Key field as an option. Didn't bank on there being different import options from different menus! Thanks for the workaround!
Note that CSV import for users in Issues > Import Issues from CSV is limited to creating issues as per its respective documentation in https://confluence.atlassian.com/jira/creating-issues-using-the-csv-importer-636420874.html
