Problem with external CSV import

I am trying to import issues from a CSV and i get the following message:

java.io.IOException: Malformed CSV stream. Missing ["] near offset 62 after field 0 on line 169

I am using JIRA 5.0.4

See CSV attached

Thanks! ()

Hi,

there is no file attached.

I can't attach a CSV file

The error message you're getting really is telling you what is wrong - there is at least one " mark in your csv that doesn't match up, and is breaking the format.

You'll need to escape the extra " marks in order to import them. I think it's just using "" instead of "

The error message tells you what line is failing, although the character reference might not be that helpful - it's often "the next thing I couldn't read" instead of "where you've got something wrong"
