There are 2 cases to separate:

  • when you import issues that link to already existing ones
  • when you import issues that link to ones that have not been created yet


When you import issues that link to already existing ones:

  1. Export issues to XLS (see how)
  2. In the exported XLS, search for the column with the name "Linked Issues" (picture 1)
  3. And fill out the cells using the format <Description of the Issue Link> : <Issue Key> '<Issue Description>' (<Name of the Link Type>) 
    1. For example: is blocked by : VP-269 'Hello, I'm an issue' (Blocks)
    2. Learn more about the Issue Links Types here!
    3. If you want to link more than one issue to an issue, write the codes into one cell and separate them with Alt+Enter. 
  4. Copy the issues with the column names from the XLS, paste them into JExcel's import dialog (see how) and finish the importing proccess (picture 2)

When you import issues that link to ones that have not been created yet:

  1. Export issues to XLS  (see how)
