Import data to a business project using a CSV file

Moving your work into Jira Work Management doesn't have to be a time-consuming process. With our new CSV importer, you can easily transfer information from tools such as Asana,, and ClickUp into Jira Work Management, allowing you to start working more quickly. Plus, you can now bring your business teams, like legal, marketing, and HR, into the Atlassian products suite.

To import data, simply upload a CSV file and the information will appear as issues in a Jira Work Management business project.

If you prefer to import your work into Jira Software or Jira Service Management, you’ll be switched back to the old experience.
