Execute an import

Insight in Jira Service Management is a Premium and Enterprise only feature. It is compatible only with company-managed projects. Learn more about Insight.

Executing an import in Insight for Jira Service Manager will bring outside data into Insight and automatically convert it into Insight object types, objects, attributes and references.

Before you begin

  1. You must Prepare your data.

  2. You must Create an import configuration;

  3. You must map your data into Insight. There are two options:

    1. Map your data automatically, using a Predefined structure and configuration, or;

    2. Map your data manually:

      1. Use object type mapping to create Insight object types

      2. Use object type attribute mapping to create Insight attributes and references

      3. Use child object type mapping to create hierarchical parent and child structures.

  4. After you have created your object type mappings you must enable them. The import configuration will not be executable until all object type mappings are set to Enabled. Right-click on your object type mapping and click Enable to enable the new object mapping(s).
