Assign workflow in a CSV import

Hi ! I'm new in Jira. I need to import many projects and their issues from a CSV. I want all those projects have the same workflow, schemes, screens, etc. Is it  possible? (Jira Core Cloud.)

The CSV import in Jira will let you import the specific issues.  However it doesn't actually create the projects those issues reside in.  There is an expectation that you will have created the projects first, before you can import the issues.

Yes you can create a shared configuration between projects.   I would recommend checking out the documentation on Create a project in your new Jira experience.  Specifically, there is a section in that doc with the header, "Create a project that shares its configuration with another project".   It explains how when you are first creating a project you can click the advance button and then use the 'share settings with an existing project'.

That way you can setup one project the way you want, and then create all the other projects to use the same configurations.

Thanks a lot Andrew !! I knew about the shared configuration, but the fact is that I have to import more than 2000 projects and create their tasks. So, the issue is to be able to create the projects with the CSV but informing the shared configuration in some way. I have a sample project to share the configuration with, but..., in this case I,ll have to change the settings manually. It.s a pain !!!!  Thanks for your answer !!!
