Troubleshooting errors with a story template

Suggest edit Updated on November 29, 2021

When you import your stories in bulk to Agile Workbench, you might encounter errors. Typically, errors stem from an invalid story template file type or information missing in the story template.

The template has an invalid file structure or an invalid file type

Import of stories fails because the file that you upload is in a format different from .xlsx. The Import Stories modal dialog box displays information that no file is chosen.

  1. In the navigation pane of App Studio, click Overview.
  2. In the Application profile section, click Manage.
  3. In the header of the Application profile section, click ActionsImport Stories.
  4. In the Import Stories dialog box, click Download the template to save an .xlsx file to your local machine.
  5. Open the file.
  6. Copy the information from your original template to the relevant columns in the file.
  7. Save the file but do not change its format.
  8. In the Import Stories dialog box, click Choose File.
  9. Navigate to the location of your story template, and then click Open to upload the file.
