Importing CSV causes error

When user attempts to import a CSV file the following error is displayed:

An error occurred whilst rendering this message. Please contact the administrators, and inform them of this bug. Details: ------- org.apache.velocity.exception.MethodInvocationException: Invocation of method 'getIssueTypes' in class com.atlassian.jira.plugins.importer.imports.csv.web.CsvValueMappingsPage threw exception java.lang.NullPointerException at com.atlassian.jira.plugins.jim-plugin:actions//templates/admin/views/csv/csvValueMappingsPage.vm[line 101, column 51] at org.apache.velocity.runtime.parser.node.ASTIdentifier.execute(ASTIdentifier.java:223) at

Any ideas? Thanks.

Hi, @Mark Sanders / @John Di Ciurcio

It looks like you are hitting into a bug in Jira when mapping the Issue Type field during the CSV import: JRACLOUD-68491. As a workaround please try removing the issue type from the mapping option. Alternatively, you can try importing the CSV using the Import to Jira Project option rather than mapping the project in the CSV (this should also work, we'll test this option and update the bug report accordingly if it does).

Cheers!

I'm facing the very same issue right now. Did you find a solution?

Facing the same issue now.  Bug not fixed.

I selected the "JIRA Field" (Issue Type to Issue Type) but did not check the "Map Field Value"  I was updating start and due dates.  This worked for me.
