Hello Anand, 

We have tried to reproduce the same error with the data you have provided, however we are able to import the data successfully. 

From the logs we are assuming some fields to be mandatory in JIRA that you are trying to import. Could you please double check the same.

Administration>Issues>View Field Configuration.

Thank you,

Kind Regards,


According to the field configuration ( I am using the Default Field Configuration of Jira) only Issue Type, Reporter and Summary are mandatory. In the import tool as far as I understand the Name field maps to Summary. So i got all the mandatory field covered. Also wondering why it threw error for row:6 and not for any row before that. When i delete row 6 and import it threw error for row 5.
