Do this when you do CSV import #JiraTips

London Tube

Many years ago when I learned Jira I made lot of mistakes when using the CSV import to migrate issues to Jira. It is a great utility in Jira but it takes time to do proper mapping of fields and process the data in Excel. Even after testing everything on a test project in a test instance I used to still miss something in the CSV. I even wrote macros to process the sheet but still it never always worked perfectly.

So to revert the incorrect import I had to delete or modify those issues and to do that I had to find them using JQL first.

To easily find the recently imported issues I always used a unique label in the CSV file or update any field uniquely to segregate those issue when needed.

This was a little tip. I hope it was helpful. Enjoy.

Honestly I hardly send out mails but I guess there is no harm in at least having a newsletter. I will only send newsletter when I have something important to share or an update. People are busy and no one has time to read emails these days. If you really like my content then I guess you will remember my site and come back for more.
