Import JIRA Project from other instance

i tried to import a jira project from another instance (both has same version and same greenhopper version).

but there is an error, the custom field "Epos-Status" is needed. Its from type "Status of Epic", so i can't create a new custom field with this name.

in the target instance, i have a custom field from this type, but its named "Epic Status".

has anyone an idea?

Unfortunately, there is no way around this. You will need to rename the custom field or make a new field with the same name.

It's a greenhopper-managed-field. i can not create a new field with this type and i can not rename existing fields...?
