XML Import on Jira


I performed a complete xml import on jira 4.1.2 (export was taken from 4.1.2). I got this error several times in the stdout.log during the import. I am not sure if this is a major issue.

Can anyone help please. Also is there a resolution to this?

It tells you there are some user references JIRA found on some entities (probably like Filter owner, dashboard owner etc) for which the user don't exist (was originally missing in the JIRA user list that was imported first).

It wasn't there in the source XML and hence I don't think it will cause any issues which wasn't already there in the original instance.

thanks Jobin for your response....have a great weekend.
