Hi @Mary Anjanette Payumo 

Being able to set the Issue Key is particularly useful because it allows the importer to append additional steps to tests that already exist in the system.


So if you have the same issue key in JIRA what you have in excel that you are planning to import, it will match the issue key and add the steps from the excel and append the steps to jira.


Please make sure to choose the discriminator as ID change.

Will this also be useful for updating other fields of the test case such as summary and description? We switched summary naming conventions part way through and I would like to update the older test cases to better match the new test cases.
