Your first stop for learning how to get started with Jira Service Management.
To import data into , you must first create an import structure, and then you must map the data into using object type mapping.
If you want to create a hierarchy of imported objects when mapping your data into , you can use a Child object type mapping to automatically link the child object types to the parent object type. This will cause the child object types to inherit all of the attributes of the parent object types.
Before you begin
You must create an import configuration.
For each parent object that you want to map in , you must create an object type.
In the parent object type, you must allow the attributes to be inherited by object type children. You must do this before creating any child object types.
For each child object that you want to map in , you must create an object type.
Create a parent and child hierarchy for your data using child object type mapping
Select an Object schema.
Select Schema configuration, then choose the Import tab.
In the Import tab, select on Edit mapping on your import structure to expand it.
Select the object type mapping where you wish to create a child mapping and select Edit attributes mapping.
A button to Create child mapping will appear under the attributes mapping. Select this and enter the following information:
Object type - since the child object type will be the same as the parent object type, this option will be disabled.
Filter data source by IQL - An optional IQL to query the objects fetched from source. If you wish to filter the objects from data, you can accomplish that here.
Identifier case matching - this option will be disabled.
Missing objects - select from:
Remove - Only entries from the import will persist as object/s. Any object manually created in will be deleted.
Update - All objects in not present in the import will have an attribute edited.
Ignore - Object in that is not found in the import won't be removed or updated.
Missing objects outbound references - select from:
Remove - Only outbound references from the import will persist as references. Any outbound references manually created in will be deleted.
Ignore - Outbound references in that aren’t found in the import won't be removed or updated.
Empty values - When an object is updated, choose if empty values from the external source should remove the existing value. Select from:
Use default - use the value specified in the “Define import structure” screen for this object type.
Remove - remove the current value. If the attribute is a status, select, or reference type attribute with more than one value, all of the values will be removed.
Ignore - keep the current value for this object type. If the attribute is a status, select, or reference type attribute with more than one value, all of the values will be kept.
Unknown values - this option will be disabled.
How to import data into
There are five steps when importing your data into :
Create an import structure. There are four different types of import available:
Map your data. There are two options:
Map your data automatically by automatically creating object types and attributes, or;
Map your data manually by:
After you have created your object type mappings you must enable them. The import structure will not be executable until all object type mappings are set to ENABLED. If your object type mappings are not enabled, right-click on your object type mapping and click Enable to enable them.
