Hi @Madhu Mullangi,

What is the date format you have set on step 2 in the CSV import process?

To verify see the screenshot for understanding:

Screenshot 2019-01-21 at 3.15.21 PM.png'

Have a try correcting to the right date format and let us know how it goes.


Hi Ram,

Please have a look on the attached Image.


I am using dd-MM-yyyy format, And getting this

Please make sure you are using the same format in both the CSV file and while importing into Jira.

If your CSV file has the format 'dd-MM-yyyy' (i.e with dashes) then make sure you set the format in step 2 as 'dd-MM-yyyy'.

I hope i am using the same format. If not please correct me.

The format looks good in the CSV file. Please check the format while CSV importing in step 2. Set like 'dd-MM-yyyy'

I am using the same format, Still having the same error 

The attached screenshot referring you are using a different format in step 2.

Try like here as your csv has the same format:

Screenshot 2019-01-22 at 5.51.15 PM.png

Changed the format according to your Screenshot, Still facing the same Issue

Change the format to d-m-yyyy (12-11-2018) instead of dd-MM-yyyy.

Follow the pattern as given examples

If date format is 2-1-2020 use d-m-yyyy 

else if 2-01-2020 use d-mm-yyyy

else 02-01-2020 use dd-mm-yyyy

What if some fields are date only and others are date and time?
