com.atlassian.jira.external.ExternalException

There are no available Samebug tips for this exception. Do you have an idea how to solve this issue? A short tip would help users who saw this issue last week.

  • The first time I attempted to import i was getting ImportIssueBean@101972a[<null>,<null>,<null>] Obviously because I had forgotten to map summary and issue type. There is a third field which I am missing too. Thankfully I write Java for a living so I can decipher this error message, but I can see no reason why a more meaningful message can not be provided to the user to indicate that mandatory fields are not being specified.
