Is there a way to import EPIC?

It's very handy to import issues. But organizing issues around EPICs takes quite some time. Is there any way to import EPICs together with issues?

Hello Yi Dong,

You can use the Structure for JIRA add-on to perform this operation, as you can see in the answer below:

Thanks Petterson.  I'll try this later if we decide to go with Jira.

Dear @Yi Dong,

another way, without plugins, is to import your csv file with a couple of simple script that make use of the REST API. There you can create issues with parent/epic relations.

Of cause this will require little coding skills in one of the scripting languages like PHP, python or perl.

So long


Thanks Thomas. I couldn't code, but I could try later.
