Is there a valid sample JSON string for importing?

I have been trying to import external JSON source using the wizard in a JIRA cloud instance version 1000.0.16. While trying to debug the issue with the script that we had set up to build the JSON string.

I have been following the documentation outlined the samples provided on this page do not work with the cloud JSON importer.

The error displayed is:

Unexpected failure occurred. Importer will stop immediately. Data may be in an unstable state.

After some massaging of the data I have been able to get it to a point where it doesn't display an unexpected failure but it says the issue is invalid without any further information.

Does the file has a valid JSON format?

You can check it with:


Yeah it's valid JSON. I tried with the sample JSON file provided in the documentation which didn't work either (gave the above error).

Both JSON files were valid JSON.
