Import failed using CLI runFromCsv with -a createIssue for any custom fields

jira --server <URL>  -a runFromCsv --file 802805-newCR.csv --common "--project XYZ" --continue

Verified that the custom fields are visible in the current screen and It is okay to import the same CSV using JIRA importer GUI, but using CLI got an error:

Client error: 'custom_field_xyz' is not a defined field or is not valid in this context (for instance, not being available on the appropriate screen).

Sample of the CSV format:

Hmm, do you get any more info using

--verbose 

Made the fields in questions visible in the current Create Screen, worked. Setting a global permission alone was not enough.

There is no need to make those fields visible when we use Jira CSV Import plugin.

Thanks,

Allan
