I have created Powershell script which allows to set values in Jira issues using data from MS Excel spreadsheet.

Script is based on following Powershell modules:

Usage:

  1. Set Jira server address in “update_issues.ps1” file.
  2. Update data in “data_for_issues.xlsx”
  3. Set custom field configuration according to your needs in “update_issues.ps1”
  4. Launch “update_issues.bat”, enter your Jira credentials and wait for script to complete.
  5. Log file is created next to “update_issues.ps1” file.

Download (updated: 13.05.2019.): update_issues_PS_script_V2.zip

update_issues.ps1 (updated: 13.05.2019.):
