Jira import from csv

Are there ways to create a process to schedule (daily) an import of a csv file in a particular location without any manual intervention.

For example:

A file forimport.csv is located on a share file system

At 2am a 'process' wakes up and imports that csv into a specific project in jira

That forimport.csv file is removed and the next forimport.csv is staged

Any simple way to accomplish that? Any creative ways?

Thanks a bunch!

Use your favorite job scheduler with JIRA Command Line Interface:

Import JIRA issues shows an example of how this can be done using the runFromCsv action.

Bob, thanks for your help once again! I will definitely give that a try.

I have some ideas.

1. Create a small program (C#,Ruby,Python,Java) that consumes the JIRA API (Command Line of course) and read the CSV file to your JIRA instance

2. Create a Program that generates the Jelly Tags necessary to import your CSV file and then use selenium script to login to the UI and run the Jelly Script.(Too Crazy May be?)

3. I think Bob Switft has some sort of tool to accomplish this. (Search for him on atlassian plugins site)

Hope this helps

possible spam here?

Anyone accomplish this yet and is nice enough to share ?
