Import issues from CSV

Import of parent id doesn't work anymore? It worked before

Hi Frank,

  • Is this Cloud or Server?
  • What version of JIRA are you running?
  • Did you upgrade recently?
  • Where did the CSV data come from?
  • Do you get an error when you try to import?

Let me know the answer to the above questions and take a screenshot of any errors you see.

If you are using JIRA Cloud there is a known issue on JAC titled The non-admin CSV Importer "Validate" feature returns a false error when importing Parent/Sub-task issues where the following error is shown:

The validation process has found 1 error/s
- Fatal error during import: Parent Issue cannot be null

If you are on Cloud and seeing that particular error please vote on JST-353921 to add impact and you'll be notified when a fix is found.

If you are on Server, please provide the screenshot and any snippets from the logs that you can find in relation to this error.



I'm using the cloud verions.

I have admin rights

I can't vote in the issue JST-353921 (link doesn't go to the issue)

I'm use the import functionality sinds a year (it worked well until the end of december). So i think the CSV is ok

Underneath you find my CSV Content (example) and screenshot of the error (after validation)
