how to bulk create project versions?

Im importing several projects to JIRA from CSV but when i map the issue version, the importer cant create the versions on the project, making me manually create more than 100 versions. This is a crazy job, because i need to create more 5 projects, all with 3-5 years of developing, so the versions are already released.

There is a way to bulk create this versions, like import a CSV too?

JIRA Command Line Interface (CLI) has addVersion and releaseVersion actions. You run it directly, script it, or use csv with runFromCsv.

You can import the projects using an add-on like Configuration Manager for JIRA which will create all the required configuration for you (version, components, schemes) and then just import the data from CSV. 

Another option to bulk create versions is to use the JIRA REST API. 

Thanks all for your answers. I did it using the great JIRA REST API. I made a little app, reading the versions from the CSV. Pretty simple. wink
