I have a project that I am importing into JIRA. I am using the CSV importer.
Most of the issues have a bullted list in the description. I am using the wiki renderer for the Description field but the bullets appear as "*" If I copy the field after the import it renders correctly as a bullted list.
Here is a snippet of the data in the field:
* New page named 'List' is created\\
* Select attributes of item are displayed:\\
Any trick to make this appear as a list when going through the CSV Importer?
If anyone comes across this same error.
It was resolved by the following:
When you are importing the CSV the third screen of the import process is titled "Map fields".
On this page you map the CSV field to the JIRA field, and there is additionally a checkbox for Map field value.
The checkbox should not be checked for the fields that are having the issue. With this unchecked we are able to import your csv file and have proper formatting of the lists.
