Issue linking while importing data from CSV?

Hi,

Can we link issues while importing new issues from another bug tracking system using JIRA's CSV file import option?

I understand that we can create subtasks within an issue while importing. Can we link issues like that?

Second question: Can I create external issue links while importing data from CSV?

I think no, while I am not sure. What probably can be done, is to script the linking part separately using REST, or CLI.

https://bobswift.atlassian.net/wiki/display/JCLI/Examples

jira --action linkIssue --issue "ZLINKS-1" --toIssue "ZLINKS-2" --link "relates"

This works for internal issue linking.

Any idea how to provide Web-link from CLI?

Ah no idea, use direct REST API remotelink. Should work.
