Can’t think of any ways to import these issues back in its entirety, Convert your xml in to csv and use importer tool to import is all i can think of

Not directly - the best you can do is import the whole project.

A basic workaround - fire up a temporary development Jira, import the xml, delete all the issues in the project that you do NOT want to restore, export the xml and then tell your target Jira to reimport.

Makes me wish for an importer from JIRA. Even better if it could handle different versions.

Looking for something else?
