Kailash Pathak Feb 08, 2014

Hi,

I want to cutomize Current Issue Type "Story" by adding some new field e.g I have added "Category" field as this is my project requirement.

But the problem is that i am not able to import the data of field "Category" from .csv file. I have given

field.Category= Category in (import.properties) file.

I am using following command:


jira.bat --server https://xxxx.com/jira--user xxxx --password "########" --action runFromCsv --file import.csv --propertyFile import.properties --common --continue

Above command run successfully data of all field upload in JIRA except field "Category".

Version detail is below:

JIRA Cli : 3.8.0

Bob : I will be thankfull for your help.

Regards,

There is a system field that is referred to as Category. Could you try renaming your custom field to something else (just for the import - use something like "category_temp"), as it might be confusing the import.

Thanks Nic..!

So you mean to say i rename category field to some other name e.g "CategoryNew' Is it fine ?

Hopefully it is work?

Thans once again.

Yes, that is what I would test with. You should be able to put the field name back after the import, I just have a suspicion that the import doesn't like "category" for the name

Nic,

Thanks a Lot!

I need one more help from your side. i am not able to import data of "Epic Name" field from .csv file what could be the reason ?

I rename "Epic" with "Epic Name" please see the data of my properties file

field.IssueType = Type
field.Component = Components
field.Project = Project
field.Prioritys = Priority
field.Epic Name = Epic Name
field.Epic Link= Epic Link
field.Labels = Labels

After successfully import i am able to import data of all field except "Epic Name".

What could be the reason?

Please correct me if i am missing any step.
