Importing Data from CSV Files to CodeBeamer

CodeBeamer import functionality allows you to import data from a CSV file. You can find this functionality on any Tracker's start page, using "import" action from the "more" menu.

Please read the Excel import for more details...

CSV format related constraints of this import is:

  • Two quotes escape character ("" escapes "), no other characters are escaped.
