invalid character 0x1b in Jira export entities.xml

Hi,

 

I would like to migrate my JIRA installation from JIRA Server Software (7.1.9) to JIRA Cloud. I have created the XML export file as jira.zip and the data folder as jira-data.zip. I uploaded both to the WebDAV folder.

 

When I try to start the import I get the following error:

"There was an error parsing the entities.xml file: An invalid XML character (Unicode: 0x1b) was found in the CDATA section."

Anyone know anything about that? There are a few very old bug reports with similar error messages, but they seem to have been fixed a while ago. I found no other information about this.

you have to remove 0x1b with the following:

 perl -i -pe 's/\x1b//g' entities.xml

 

It worked afterwards.
