You've not said what you mean by "unsuccessful", or how you have tried to import them.

The project data import works on a full backup file being present in the directory specified there, so you need to export your FULL data and place it there...

the second picture shows (system -> import-export -> import)

and in the file name box, i wrote the issue exported file name and next button resluted in unsuccessfull to import

you mean that i can't import a single issue ? if you mean that so what jira has a export feature for issues

Yes, the system import is for whole systems or whole projects, taken fro a full backup file

Issue export is for an xml representation for other systems, not a Jira import

for doing that i found this plugin , it supprt json export file

but the atachments doesn't add to the export file

thank you Nic ,
