JIRA Json upload error

Doing a Json upload in our JIRA, getting the below error:


2015-05-28 04:57:19,986 ERROR - Failed to create data bean java.lang.RuntimeException: org.codehaus.jackson.map.exc.UnrecognizedPropertyException: Unrecognized field "id" (Class com.atlassian.jira.plugins.importer.sample.SampleData), not marked as ignorable at [Source: java.io.StringReader@783e812e; line: 1, column: 900302] (through reference chain: com.atlassian.jira.plugins.importer.sample.SampleData["id"])


Attaching the json file. Validated with jsonlint.com, it said Valid Json.

Hi there, 


The reason that it is giving you that error is because you are not following the required format for a JSON import into JIRA. Though it may be a valid JSON file, JIRA still requires specific formatting in order to complete an upload.  For example, in the document it posted, what is "id"? JIRA has no idea what this should be interpreted as with he context you gave it. 


Full documentation can be found here: https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/JIRA/Importing+Data+from+JSON


Feel free to ask any follow-up questions you have. 


Best of luck!
