Add new Issues with checklists via CSV import


Importing checklists via CSV is available due to the custom field "Checklists".

If your Smart Checklist version is lower than 5.0.0, to import checklist values from the CSV file - you need to properly set-up "Checklists" custom field on your Jira instance first. Follow these instructions carefully to do so.

  1. Prepare the CSV file

    1. Formatting should properly keep new lines

    2. Download CSV Import Example.csv

  2. Choose CSV source file and click Next

  3. Choose Project and other import settings. 

  4. Set fields mapping

    1. Choose "Summary" field for Summary. "Map field value" must be checked

    2. Choose "Checklists" custom field

      1. Don't Check "Map field value", otherwise importer will break field formatting and the add-on will not be able to properly render checklist values

  5. Do the last check before the import or Validate mapping

  6. Your data should be imported. Check success message from where you can navigate to the item's listing 

  7. And see imported issues
