Import to update exising items

    I need to add new fields to existing item types and update those fields from an external source (excel).  Does Jama support this?  I did not see any way to link the Project ID during import and did not want to risk corrupting my data by trail and error.

    Hi Jeff,

    There is a way to do this. Once you add the new fields to your item type, you can export the items to Excel using Roundtrip; this will include the necessary IDs for mapping. Once the values are in the new field in the spreadsheet you can import it back into Jama.
