Importing JIRA epics.


Is it possible to import a JIRA epic and all it's issues into a portfolio Epic?

My current workflow is as follows:

  1. Import JIRA epic (which becomes an epic in portfolio, all is well).
  2. Import all issues in epic (manually selecting the issues of the epic in step 1, annoying).

It would be easier if the importer would allow me to simply import the epic and automatically import the issues contained within it (at least it could give me the option of doing that!).

If you are using Portfolio. You can create the skeleton with the Epic and Stories and directly create issues from there

This answer doesn't really address the question, the EPIC and issues already exist and they need to be imported, recreating them is not a good solution.

I would also like to see this functionality.
