Feature request - bulk ticket update via file import
We are cleaning up our backlog tickets from last year. I exported a report of tickets in the backlog and am categorizing follow up actions (close, notify requester, notify assignee). The next step is to execute that action on all of those tickets.
While there are ticket bulk manage options in the View UI, our need is to update >350 tickets or otherwise execute an automation across all of them.
The solution that comes to mind relies on the design pattern of the bulk user update file import method. Basically, a csv with rows of ticket IDs and corresponding tags (ie. ID, TAG1) that would then be used to trigger those automations. This would allow updates to more tickets than can be done in the Views UI and would allow the admin to work from a collaborative spreadsheet (the report of tickets in the backlog) where assignees select the action and a respective tag is added. Doing so improves accuracy and completeness of updates and minimizes admin effort.
You can do this via API, but that is way over my head. Our developers here use Excel files and .Net programming to do it.
