Trouble Importing Content Exported From Another OJS system

We're migrating to a new OJS server and ran into trouble importing the content from the old system. The users migrated fine but when we try to import the issues we're getting a '•The title for an issue was missing' error. We have Title unchecked in the settings for the journal on the new system are unsure how to proceed.

Hi journalman,

Which version of OJS are you using? Have you checked to see if your import file validates?

Cheers,
James

We're using 2.3.6 on our side. The administrator of the old server said the file exported fine and should work. I'm not sure I follow what additional steps you'd like us to take to further validate the file. Please advise.

Looks like we lost sight of this thread. Did you ever get a response on this? Or did you figure it out?

Hi,

I'm suffering of the same problem. The export is done correctly, but when I try to import I get the "The title for an issue was missing." error message.

¿Maybe if the Title is unchecked in the settings for one journal it also has to be unchecked in the importing journal? But I think it's unchecked in both. ¿How can I know if my import file validates?

Cheers.

Edit: As I finished writing this, I edited the issues.xml adding a <title locale="es_Es">The title</title> near the top and it worked.

This should work:
Edit your XML. Add to <issue> tag an "identification" attribute. Currently it may only other attributes, so just tack on the identification="...." part inside the < >

Something like:
<issue identification="num_vol_year">

Instead of num_vol_year, you can also use "vol_year", "vol", or "year"
