Import csv into Next-Gen project?

Can I import a CSV file into a next-gen project?

Seems we will need to wait for the Next-Gen projects to gain more functionality.

I'm not sure about importing directly to an existing next gen project, but as a workaround you could import the issues into a normal Jira project then move them over to the next gen project as specified in this documentation:

Hope this helps!

Yes, I did exactly this. The biggest challenge is the custom fields. I modified / created the fields with exactly the same names on both projects, but the Move does not map the fields so the values are not moved over. Bummer!

How about copying the issues instead of moving them?  There are some people who said they did that here:

Works for me - need to use in my CSV:

  • Issue Type: "Subtask"

and in my config.txt

  • "jira.field" : "parent id"
  • "jira.field": "Story point estimate"

We had to abandon assigning the imported tickets to a Sprint because the Sprint field seems to require an ID, not the name.

I am adding this in case other users are going to search for a way to do so.

Importing issues from CSV to next-gen projects is possible as long as you don't map any custom field in the Next-Gen project. This is because of the below bug:

Please review above bug ticket for details.
