i am trying to create the issue type using json import option i am getting following error 

java.lang.RuntimeException: Unrecognized field "Issue Type" (Class com.atlassian.jira.plugins.importer.sample.SampleData), not marked as ignorable

Following is the content from my json file 

"Issue Type": [
"name": "my test task",
"description": "my test task",
"type": "standard"

0 votes says nothing about "Issue Type:" - that's not the right structure for it.

any idea what could be the right structure 

Try the one in the docs?
