JSON importer ignoring fixedVersion and Components

I'm trying to import issues from our legacy tracking system into Jira.  Imports work, but for some reason components and fixedVersions are ignored.  The values I'm submitting are valid, and there are no errors, it's just not showing up in imported issue. Here's my JSON.  Any insight would be greatly appreciated.  

 

{ 
          "issueType" : "Production Defect",
          "status"  : "Initial Review",
          "summary" : "Some Summary",
          "priority" : "Medium",
          "reporter" : "someuser",
          "assignee": "someuser",
          
          "created" : "2012-12-10T08:49:46.161+0500",
          "updated" : "2014-10-09T12:01:04.161+0500",
   
          "components" : ["Administration"],
          "fixedVersions" : ["2.5"],
}

The JSON Importer assumes that Components and versions mentioned in issue object already exist. If you'd like to create versions, components and issues in one JSON file you will need to add them to project object. Here's a sample JSON file:

{
    "projects": [
        {
            "name": "For Version Project",
            "key": "FVP",
            "description": "This is testing project to check how versions are imported",
            "versions": [
                {
                    "name": "2.5",
                    "released": false,
                    "archived": false,
                    "releaseDate": "2013-08-31T00:00:00.00",
                    "startDate": "2012-08-31T15:59:02.161",
                    "description": "Some description for 2.5"
                }],
            "components": [
                "Administration"
            ],
            "issues": [
                {
                    "issueType" : "Production Defect",
                    "summary" : "Some Summary",
                    "priority" : "Medium",
                    "reporter" : "someuser",
                    "assignee": "someuser",
           
                    "created" : "2012-12-10T08:49:46.161+0500",
                    "updated" : "2014-10-09T12:01:04.161+0500",
    
                    "components" : ["Administration"],
                    "fixedVersions" : ["2.5"]
                }
            ]
        }
    ]
}

Hi Dennis!
I guess that matching Component and Fix Version should exist in JIRA and only then import will tie the imported issues to them.

 

Thanks Przemyslaw. Absolutely right. I just needed to add versions.
