Preparing a worksheet to import relationships

Relationships are imported to Jama Connect from an CSV file, using a relationship import plugin. You can’t import relationships with the Excel Import Wizard.

A properly formatted CSV file, when opened in Excel, consists of two columns:

  • Column A — Parent or upstream item references

  • Column B — Child or downstream item references


As needed, you can import multiple relationships to a single item or many relationships to many items. To accomplish this, you create duplicate cell combinations for those items. In this example, CP-REQ-10 has three relationships, each in its own row.
