Import AND Link to Existing Issue

Currently I have a CSV with two columns:

is xyz of

is tested by





When I import the issues I map them by Links and Sub-Tasks/Issue Id.

However, after completing import I do not see the links on any of the tickets.


How do I use a CSV for import and link the new issues to existing issues?

Not sure why this failed originally. This time I simply made a test CSV with two columns (summary, is tested by). is tested by then had an existing issue id in it. Map the is tested by column to a link. Import. Done.

Which column are you trying to map to subtasks and which are you trying to map to links?

@Kian Stack [Mumo Systems] im trying to link both columns to the rows. so TEST-123 would be a link of 'is xyz of' to the row issue and TEST-122 would be a link of 'is tested by' of the row issue. thanks for your reply, apologies for the delay :)
