Specify file encoding in JSON import

Importing external projects and issues with UTF-8 JSON files leads to double-encoded umlauts (äöü) in our JIRA instance.

Converting the JSON files to ISO-8859-1 with iconv and importing then leads to broken umlauts..

What can I do to tell JIRA which encoding my JSON file is?

After setting the file system encoding to UTF-8 in bin/setenv.sh with

CATALINA_OPTS="$CATALINA_OPTS -Dfile.encoding=UTF-8"

it works now as expected.
