How to import Sprint from CSV?


I am unable to import Sprint from CSV. Could anyone suggest me the procedure. The Sprint values (Sprint 0, Sprint 1 ....)are not supporting.

If it is not possible through CSV is there any other method?

We would like to inform you that mapping the sprint number isn't possible in JIRA when importing via CSV. However, there's a feature request which has been raised for this functionality. For your reference, please see

We suggest to complete the import first and then perform a bulk edit to update the Sprint name (the field name is Sprint) for the relevant issues

Thanks I'll do that manually. We are hearing this since 2012 that in next 12 months JIRA is going to update the sprint import from csv. Do we have any update that this can be added in next release?

No, I already added the ticet number above.

Was that done? Importing via  CSV.

There is an alternative way to accomplish this task. In the sprint field of the csv file instead of adding the sprint number 0, 1, 2, 3 ... add the sprint id (this number you can get in the database in the sprint table). To get the job done. ok?
