Status does not show up in the fields to bring in via the External System Import for issues. I can't map the status option that is in my import csv file to any option, because it isn't available. How do you bring in status?
Are you importing via External System Import? There's two ways to import from CSV:
The second option is only available to Admins, but is the only way really to correctly import.
That was it... i was using the first option, which takes me to the page that says External System Import, but it is slightly different. When I went to the External System Import via the Administration > System path, it comes up with the right version and now I see Status as an option.
Thanks for your assistance!
These options need to be better highlighted on the user guide for importing issues.
The first option is more in line with adding new issues to an existing project, but provides very little flexibility in what to add - which is what this article should highlight.
And this page doesn't even mention the menu links for Admin > System > External import...
