Hi Peter,

It's only possible add a value per row via CSV import, so you can only import one attachment per time. However, after performing a first import with a single attachment, you can create a new CSV with only two rows -- issue key and attachment. Then, repeat the same issue key for each attachment you may add on it. Import this new CSV file in JIRA and all the issues will be updated according the CSV file;

You can find more information about this procedure I'd mentioned in the 'Updating existing JIRA issues' section on this page.

Best regards,

I want to double check.

Suppose my csv is like this:


issue key,summary,subject,attachment

T1, some summary, some subject, 1.png

T1, , , 2.png

T1, , , 3.png



This will add T1 issue which contains three attachments, right?

i think yes. but you create 5 columns in csv, that are all mapped into one jira column

i thought so :( maybe some separator character woulkd be invented in future

I solved this porblem by creating 5 columns in csv, that are all mapped into one jira column
