Jira project Import fails


I am tryin to perform a jira project import (Jira 4.1.2). Although during the initial project import screening Jira did not find any errors but during the actual data import I received this error. help please!


There was a problem parsing the backup XML file at E:\Downloads_4.1.2\backups\<BACKUP_FILE_NAME>.zip: An OSGroup in the backup file is missing the name parameter.

While I am not sure, an earlier export used to have an issue and you will mostly find entries like this in the XML

<OSGroup id="some_id" name="" />

Put some name for the group and it should work. If you still have your old 4.1.2 alive, you may actually check what is the name of the group.

Thanks Renjith. Thats a fantastic idea...I will try that.
