Error "Error importing data: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: [GenericDelegator.makeValue] could not find entity for entityName: Application" when restore JIRA from xml file

I try to restore JIRA (v 4.2) from XML file that is backuped from other JIRA server (same version 4.2), but there is an error:

"Error importing data: java.lang.IllegalArgumentException: [GenericDelegator.makeValue] could not find entity for entityName: Application"

What should I do now?

It seems like there is missing entity name from some third-party plugins that you configured before.

You might want to check and compare on the original JIRA server installation directory ($<jira_installation_directory>\atlassian-jira\WEB-INF\classes\entitydefs) whethere is there any extra entity name added on the following files:

  • entitymodel.xml
  • entitygroup.xml

Hope it helps !

Cheers :)
