Hello Chao,

If your project import did not complete, you can refer to the JIRA log file. The Project Import tool will log details of the operation to this file, including any unexpected errors and exceptions. e.g. database locked out, disk full... etc.

Helo Chao,
You can check this information on the catalina.out (<JIRA-INSTALL>/logs/catalina.out) log file.
