Hi Antonio,

Try setting the custom field context to "Global" as per described here:

Hi Lucas,

The custom field context its setting on "Global", I din't explain very well, I'll try better now:

In our JIRA, we have two custom fields of nFeed, well, the next step that we want its import external issues from a CSV file where two of this columns are the values for those custom fields created previously in JIRA with nFeed.

The problem its when we trying to import we cant assign this columns with this fields, they aren't on the list.

Sorry for my bad English.

Just as a follow up to any looking for this answer, I was unsuccessful importing issues with nFeed fields utilizing CSV, but I was successful with JSON. Using the JSON importer you can set the fieldType correctly and import a issue like this and if done right all your nFeed dependencies seem to be respected with the newly created custom fields.

  "projects" : [ {
   "key" : "ABC",
         "summary":"This is my Test Issue",
         "customFieldValues": [
         				"fieldName":"Custom nFeed Field",
         				"value":"This is my nFeed Value"
         				"fieldName":"Custom nFeed Field-2",
         			  "value":"This is my second Value"
         "description":"My Issue description",
      } ]
    } ]

Hello Antonio, did you ever find a solution to your question? We are running into the same issue here.
