Why can't I import an MS Project file on my WBS Gantt-Chart?


I created a new Gantt using a freshly created Jira Project. When I try to import an MS Project File I can't select any Project or Import Issue Type at the File Upload screen and I am getting an error when trying to upload the MS Project File. Why is that happening? 


This situation occurs due to the Jira Project used to create the Gantt-Chart is currently being empty. At the time, WBS Gantt-Chart does not allow the import of an MS Project file if the Jira Project is empty.

A workaround to this error is to go to the Jira Project used, create an example issue, go back to the Gantt-Chart and import the MS Project file normally - the example issue can be deleted with no problem after the process is done.
