Importing issues from excel to JIRA

Hello,

We currently have a requirement where in we have bulk amount of issues tabulated in an excel file. Each row in excel has to be created as an issue in JIRA. Is there any sort of plugin or anything which would help us out? Currently we are manually creating issues and since the count of issues to be loaded into JIRA is increasing everyday, we are looking out for an issue importer.

Please guide us

Thank you.
