What about specifying the link type? I would like to be able to create sequences using blocker links

Hi Dietrich,

You get to pick the link type on the 'Map Fields' step in the import wizard.

You can set up a csv with a column (or columns) called "Blocks". In this column, you can put the issue ID of the issue that is blocked by the issue you are importing.

For example, in the csv below:

  • Issue One blocks both Issue Two and Issue Three 
  • Issue Two blocks Issue Three 

Summary      , Issue Id , Blocks , Blocks
Issue One    ,        1 ,      2 ,      3
Issue Two    ,        2 ,      3 ,
Issue Three  ,        3 ,        ,

When you import this you can map the 'Blocks' column to the Link "Blocks" as shown below:

Hope that helps.
