java.lang.RuntimeException: Error adding status IceBox

Trying to import issues from Pivotal Tracker.

JIRA (v5.2.2#843-sha1:2c344e5)

JIRA Importers Plugin 5.0.2

Users are being mapped (although the exact same problem occurs when not using user mapping).

Please help - I'm really not sure how to proceed.

We had manually created a Status called "Icebox", which i guess explains why the importer couldn't add "IceBox". So it's either a bug, or a documentation bug. I've worked around the problem my renaming our Icebox status name.

It definitely looks like a bug in JIRA Importer Plugin. I raised an issue for it -
