    Details

      Description

      NOTE: This bug report is for JIRA Service Desk Server. Using JIRA Service Desk Cloud? See the corresponding bug report.

      Steps to reproduce

      1. Export issues created in a Service Desk from JIRA to csv
      2. Import issues back into JIRA mapping the Customer Request Type field to the one exported by JIRA

      Expected Behaviour
      JIRA imports issues successfully with the expected Customer Request Type

      Actual Behaviour
      Issues are imported but without the Customer Request Type

      The following is seen in the log

      2015-01-10 12:32:08,448 JiraTaskExectionThread-5 ERROR admin 752x2267x1 55b6dr 192.168.1.173 /secure/admin/ImporterLogsPage!import.jspa [internal.customfields.origin.VpOriginManagerImpl] Invalid stored origin value Get IT help
      2015-01-10 12:32:08,448 JiraTaskExectionThread-5 WARN admin 752x2267x1 55b6dr 192.168.1.173 /secure/admin/ImporterLogsPage!import.jspa [imports.importer.impl.AbstractDataImporter$1Thread[http-bio-8080-exec-5,5,main]] Cannot add value [ [Get IT help] ] to CustomField Customer Request Type in Issue null. Probably value was in incorrect format
      

      Workaround
      replace the value in the CSV with the "correct format" value from JIRA's database with the following SQL query.

      SELECT distinct(stringvalue) from customfieldvalue, customfield where customfield.cfname = 'Customer Request Type'
      and customfield.id = customfieldvalue.customfield
      

      It should be all lower cases, with '-' instead of spaces and preceded by the project key and a slash.

      For example, "Get IT Help" in project TST will need to be replaced as "tst/get-it-help"

      The custom request type will have some random hash values, example: "tst/bc4b6686-1b4a-4f26-84d3-ecf184bafdd9".
      In this case, user wouldn't understand what is the correct request type for each string value.

      To get the full list of request types + string value for each project, this query can be used:

      SELECT p.pname, r."NAME" as request_type_name , (po."KEY" || '/' || r."KEY") AS request_type_key 
      FROM "AO_54307E_VIEWPORT" po, "AO_54307E_VIEWPORTFORM" r, project p 
      WHERE po."ID"=r."VIEWPORT_ID" AND po."PROJECT_ID"=p.id
      ORDER BY p.pname
