When I import a CSV the Issue Type field does not import correctly

I am trying to import a CSV including the Issue Type field - the import appears to run with no errors, but all issues are imported as Stories, even though I have specified one as an Epic. Am I doing something incorrectly?

This used to work fine on older versions of cloud - but now doesn't work. The project type is next-gen - could this be affecting things?

 

Config File Field Mappings: 

"config.field.mappings" : {
"Summary" : {
"jira.field" : "summary",
"userChanged" : "true",
"manualMapping" : "false"
},
"Issue Type" : {
"jira.field" : "issuetype",
"userChanged" : "true",
"manualMapping" : "false"
},
"Description" : {
"jira.field" : "description",
"userChanged" : "true",
"manualMapping" : "false"
}
},

Try to remove the space in issueType,

"IssueType" : {
      "jira.field" : "issuetype"

the space in the field name is correct. that's how the JIRA-generated config file exports it.

I had this same problem.

I think the problem is with the "next-gen" project type because I was able to do the exact same import in a "classic" project and the Issue Type field would import correctly.

I agree.

I think it is indeed a bug with the next-gen project type.

Having the same problem. Anyone found a solution?
