Why can't NetworkManager import .ovpn files in Fedora 22?

I was running F21 Workstation. I had 56 .ovpn files that I could import into NetworkManager flawlessly.

After doing a clean install of Fedora 22's XFCE spin, NetworkManager will not import any .ovpn files. The error I get is:

"The file 'configname.ovpn' could not be read or does not contain recognized VPN connection information

Error: does not look like a Cisco AnyConnect Compatible VPN (openconnect) VPN connection (parse failed)."

Why can't NetworkManager import these files? I've read that it's possible to split them up and manually input it into NetworkManager, but I don't want to do that for 56 files.
