JIRA Import Wizard - purpose of Map Field Value Check Box

JIRA,

I have gotten the import wizard working nicely and pretty much understand how to use it. But, I do not understand why someone would want to select the Map Field Value check box. That brings up antohe screen whcih lets you enter other values. For my work I am mapping the fields in the csv to Jira, leaving the Map Field Values unchecked and using everything as is from the CSV. Why would one use Map Field Value Check box?

Nic,

Thanks. Your explanation "example" should be in the doco as exactly what you wrote :)

It's for mapping values, as it says on the tin.

Let's say you have a select list that should contain

Red

Yellow

Blue

But your import data contains Red, red, RED, Yellow, purpli, Blue, blueish, pink - you probably want all the Red variants to be red, blue to be blue and so-on
