When importing CSV file it cannot find any CSV fields


I have exported data to an Excel document by searching for issues within a project and clicking "Views" and then "Excel (All Fields)". I have then saved this document as a .csv file.

I want to import this .csv file to another instance of jira and get stuck on the import wizard..another instance of jira. Everything goes fine until I try to map fields.

Hi Alex,

If you are moving data from JIRA to another instance of JIRA, you should be looking at "Project Import". Documentation available at


I only want to import issues from one project, and some of the custom fields are different in the second instance of JIRA so I wanted to map values from the .csv file aswell
