I am trying today to import a csv file into JIRA. All works fine but I cannot get working that the Sprint number of an issues (story) will be set correectly.
This I've done so far:
Add 3 sprints in JIRA Agile: Sprint 70, Sprint 71 and Sprint 72
In the csv I added one column for the sprint number (containing 70, 71 or 72) and add the mapping to the Sprint number.
But I get these error message for every issue:
- Cannot add value [  ] to CustomField Sprint in Issue null. Exception Message: Sprint must exist: 71
Why it doesn't work?
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 https://jira.atlassian.com/browse/GHS-5942.
Atlassian is not planning ti implement this feature in the next 12 months but we are encouraging you to add the ticket on your watch list and vote for the ticket as well to receive future updates and increase it's popularity.
Hope it helps.
There is a way to add the Sprint ID, which is a number, to the .csv file when importing using the External System Import tool.
To get the sprint id, go to Search for Issues, Advanced Search, enter the name of the sprint in the search bar. For example,
sprint = name of your sprint
The sprint id will appear as a number in the place of the 'name of your sprint' above.
Copy the sprint id number and insert the id number into your .csv file and ensure that the column for the sprint field is a number field with no decimal points.
Your issues will import with the correct sprint.
