JIRA Command Line Interface support running CLI actions from csv including create and update. For example, see How to import JIRA issues using CSV

Hi Bob,

I installed the CLI here.

Please could you help me to use this comand line interface?

Do you have one example "updating issues" from csv ?

Thanks in Advance



Follow the example for import issue, but the action should be updateissue instead of createissue.


Make sure you read about the parameters for updateissue

Norman answered it. See updateIssue for the parameters.
